disoriented

Maps. Nowhere in the guide books do they mention that the Japanese do maps differently. It’s only several hours into wandering round Tokyo that we work out the reason the plentiful maps in the street are confusing is they are always oriented relative to the where the map is placed. You can see the logic in it but when you’re used to maps having a consistent orientation the brain isn’t interested in logic, it just flaps.
