It was issued by the Japanese Bureau of Information just months before the December 1941 invasion of the Philippines. The focus of the map is the Philippine transportation network. The level of detail evident in this map illustrates the extreme interest the Japanese had in the Philippines, not only as a source of personnel and resources, but as a stepping stone to Southeast Asia and Melanesia.
