    Summary of the rules for this month's challenge:

    Sponsor: "Gamerprinter", Gamer Printshop & Dementia 5 Publishing House

    Challenge: Create a City Map of approx. 3500 people, which is roughly 500 homes, 100 shops, 3 temples, 1 shrine park, 1 castle within city walls, wharfage on the west bank of a river.

    You are free to choose your own style, use any software, even hand-drawn work.

    References: 3 sets of images offer views found in feudal Japanese cities, please review all of them as each shows a different aspect of a city. Note the closeness of buildings and the narrow streets, alleys often have small gates limiting access.

    Tanaka's challenge (mentioned in the reference material):

    Although as the Nagasaki map shows Japanese systems use a grid format for street layout, but also castle towns are a bit maze like to prevent direct access to the castle from the city gate.
    Good voting everyone and don't forget to rep the work you liked!
