In Japan, 3D maps are often well decorated in different places such as elementary school libraries, citizen halls, and outdoor lover’s houses.


In this campaign, everyone can participate to the famous battles in Japanese history! Let me demonstrate you about how to “conquer” those battles and show your creative idea onto those decisive battles. A desktop PC is recommended. Are you ready? Let’s go!


■Playful Approach for Beginner


Step 1:

By scrolling down the campaign page, you will find 8 battle images. Click each battle and choose your favorite theme. Once decide, click “View in 3D”.

Step 2:

When you see the theme displaying at the top of the page, please play around the bottom of left upper side to adjust the terrain height of the base map.

Step 3:

Choose the printing size and click “Purchase on rinkak” for ordering your map.


Each battle map stories are displayed as below when you click to thumbnail.







This is my 3D printed map in 7x7 square centimeters. It came out pretty vibrant!




■Playful Approach for Advanced User


Step 1:

By scrolling down the campaign page, you will find 8 battle images. Click each battle and choose your favorite theme. Once decide, click “View in 3D”. This time, I will take the Battle of Sekigahara for example.



Step 2:

When you see the theme displaying at the top of the page, play around the bottom of left upper side to adjust the terrain height of the base map and click “Update the base image”. When the small screen shows, please click “Download the base image”.











Step 3:

In Japanese history, Ieyasu Tokugawa (Eastern Armies) won the battle because of Hideaki Kobayakawa’s betray to Mitsunari Ishida (Western Armies). I would like to make a 3D battle map to emphasize this decisive moment.

Step 4:

There are many drawing tools. This time, I choose Photoshop. I edit Mitsunari Ishida’s Western Armies in blue, Ieyasu Tokugawa’s Eastern Armies in pink, and Hideaki Kobayakawa’s armies in purple.


If you want to add few more texts on the map, please make their size bigger than 12pt. Otherwise, they cannot be shown clearly on the 3D print. Personally, I am not only a history fan, but also a train lover. I therefore include the train route of Sekigahara town on the 3D map!


Step 5:

After customizing the base map, please save it in png or jpg format. Upload your file by clicking the “Select a new image”. There are 3 sizes available for print: 5x5, 7x7, 10x10 square centimeters by ¥2,000 (about $17), ¥4,000 (about $33), ¥6,000 (about $50).



Step 6:

To keep the high printing quality, all of the 3D prints will be executed in Japan. It usually takes 2~4 weeks to receive your unique maps.

After receiving my customized battle map, I feel delightful and enjoy the clear resolution of the battle map. How Hideaki Kobayakawa’s armies (purple) were forced to hold back and stay in the Mt. Matsuo by Ieyasu Tokugawa’s armies (pink) and how he gazed down upon the Sekigahara battlefield are clearly printed. No wonder he later decided to give up and then joined Ieyasu Tokugawa’s armies.
