I made the needle of a compass in the shape of Japan. It enables you to
intuitively know the direction you are standing in Japan without relying on
north-south-east-west information.

When I held the compass in my hand,
I got a more real sense of the direction in Japan I was facing than
I ever had before. The center of the needle is right in the position of Mt. Fuji,
so it became the bearing that supports Japan.
