I'm no artist nor do I have any special program for making a neater looking map, but given all the information on the wiki all the realms are properly spaced. The only difficulty I had was in the center, since it seems Meido, Jigoku, and Ningen-do have the most in common with all the others, but are also close to one another.
This project would have also been easier if I could have made a 3D model rather than a 2D repre…
