How to get to Takamatsu from Tokyo

The drawing is sketch and at the moment I am thinking about scanning the drawing and colorize on Photoshop. 


Why am I making this map? For fun? A client? a gift? To showcase my favorite places? Etc.


I want to create a map for my blog post that shows how to get to the city of Takamatsu (Kagawa Prefecture) from Tokyo.

Kagawa Prefecture is famous for udon noodle and a lot of people go there specifically to eat udon. On this blog post I am talking about udon noodle.

Many people around the world may know Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, but probably do not know Kagawa. So, I am simply trying to show where Takamatsu is located (on the small island bottom left).   

There are a couple of ways to get there. By air is the fastest by far. There is an overnight bus to Okayama that takes 10 hours (above Takamatsu on my drawing). Then you have to take a train to Takamatsu crossing the bridge. Or you can take a bullet train (Shinkansen) to Okayama, then to Takamatsu.


Why am I the expert to create this map?

This summer I went to Takamatsu, so I can explain.


Who is my target audience?

Tourists. People interested in Japan who don’t understand Japanese


What level of detail do I need to include? (Names, addresses, contact info, street names, website,

hours, descriptions, color coding etc.).

I am just trying to give readers an idea where Takamatsu is, so I don’t need to show address. I drew bus, bullet train and airplane separately because it’s hard to draw small on the map. With Photoshop I will make it smaller and place it on the map.

Also, I might use drawings of bus, airplane and train as icons and explain how long it takes with each transportation system.

Do I want my final project to be printed or digital? How is it going to be used/ held? What other

constraints do I need to keep in mind moving forward? (Note: type can be smaller on printed maps than when viewed on web).


I will use it as digital, but I think it can be printed as well.
