Principal steamship routes are shown with distances between ports given in nautical miles.

The southern limit of ice in winter is shown, highlighting the importance of the warm–water port of Port Arthur to the Russians. This map has a grid–reference to major cities and towns of Japan and Chosen in the bottom margin.
