              This is done so that the player can easily distinguish the "important pieces" of Japan. (In this case, I put Tokyo on it).

                As stated in the beginning, practicing to memorize the placements of the pieces of prefecture is the ultimate purpose.

                Overall, I've gotten a decent grasp at using laser cutters, 3D printers, Yosegi patterns, Inkscape, Fusion360, & Adobe Illustrator involving .dxf, .svg, & .ai files.
