This looks to be a (slightly to moderately squished? or is it perspective?) star map of some of the classic Western constellations of the northern sky. For the most part, it’s a straight one-to-one map, centred on the North Star.

Specifically, you can see Gemini, the twins, hanging out just behind Haru, quite central. :D Also there is the source of the Perseid meteor shower, just between Perseus and Auriga, but I wouldn’t know anything about that. (cough)
