Yum Yum Maps

Yum Yum is a travel magazine from the island of Hokkaido in Japan. They make their own hand drawn maps. My favorite one is Make Your Bento in Kyoto, showing where to buy the needed ingredients for a Bento Box and then where to enjoy your lunch.
The map includes pairing advice and a checklist at the bottom of the page. Here are some details.
Another map hangs in a child's rest corner of a shop in a mall in Shihoro on Hokkaido. It shows places of interest in the town.
In nearby Obihiro, at the Hotel Nupka, you can enjoy one of these beers...
 ... on top of this coaster.
Both maps are of the surrounding parts of Hokkaido. The beer is a "caution beer"whatever that means. From an attempted Japanese translation:
A caution beer from Tokachi "beer at the beginning of travel"...Tokachi is a label that maps the east Hokkaido area, which is rich in nature, to Shiretoko Peninsula and Nemuro. Brewed using 100% of barley from Dido / Naka-Tsuzu-machi.
There are several maps of New Zealand also including this 60-day camper van travel itinerary.
and this maybe too-cute tourist map full of personal observations.
