These house flags from a ships directory chart published by the Japanese government and appearing in the brochure/book Fune to Hata (Ships and Flags) published by the Nihon Maru Memorial Foundation in 1994 following an exhibit at the Yokahama Maritime Museum by the same name and during the same year. Photocopies of the charts were provided by Nozomi Kariyasu for these images.. Three charts are devoted to Japanese flags.

The images in the photocopies are small, therefore only 34 are either not repeated or are of enough clarity to allow their representation. In some instances, the location of objects on the flag are the best approximation available.
