Five maps are in this page with the first two satellite views from Google Maps.
These show the topography of the area where Z-8 crashed.

Next is a hand drawn sketch of the crash site and locations of where the B-29 was found.

The third map is a close up of the navigation chart used for entry and exit from the bomb run.
IP = Initial Point, the location where the bomb run begins.

The last map is of the Kobe area with latitude and longitude coordinates.
In there is my edit showing the approximate location where Z-8 was lost.
