Find Maps Around the City

One of the most noticeable issues with Shenmue is the lack of a map to reference when navigating the city. As a result, you’ll have to do a lot of exploring to memorize the city’s intricacies. However, you’ll notice that there are interactive maps posted throughout the city’s walls. Don’t get lost and try to memorize everything just by playing a lot, like some people have.
