Taiyoh Pokemon Nation

Taiyoh is a fan-made Pokemon nation. It is based on Japan. In fact, the resemblance is so strong that I came across these pages when looking for maps of Japan.

I will refrain from commenting on Pokemon given my lack of knowledge. However, I like the look and feel of this map. It's nice to see fantasy maps that aren't obvious attempts at stealing the Tolkien motif. Here is a close-up of the Kanto region, the capital located and shaped quite a bit like Tokyo Bay.

Looking at the author's Lunos nation, there's a definite style to his cartography.

Finally, here's the Karai Region.

 I can't quite place it but these shapes seem a bit familiar too.
