    Hi,

    Does anyone know a site where I could find examples of ancient (eg medieval) oriental (China, Japan etc) city maps?

    I need to create some for my RPG campain and did found nothing with Google search till yet.

    Thanks for any answer/comment.

    Ancient oriental city maps are hard to find I think.
    This is a great resource for ancient city maps:
    http://historic-cities.huji.ac.il

    But the maps kinda end in the middle east...

    This has some middle-eastern city maps.

    I'd try google images for maps of specific cities

    Try here:
    http://www.davidrumsey.com/japan/

    As I remember there are city maps of more than one city in the collection.
    Also try:

    Many interesting maps.

    Be prepared to waste a day or two to explore these sites!

    Thank you for all your answers.
    I think I'll need more than a day to sort all that, though...

    I won't be able to show you the results soon...
