Nikki Pugh was an exchange student near Tokyo and was shocked by how people in Japan give directions. They draw maps using the train station as the starting point. This gave her the idea to collect postcards with maps on them, cut out all of the text, and then go on an adventure to discover what those places were. She did this at each of the 29 stations along the Yamanote train line.
