Was trying to get this translated, and here's a prompt response from the Japan Reference website (jref.com).
Thanks to mcmike for mentioning this site.
Appears my father got the map case and contents from his time China with the 2/7.
Yamaguchi Troop, Kei 4046 Regiment*
Army Master Sergeant Tsujimura Seikichi
*Kei is the unit code name to refer to the 118th Division. 4046 is also the code name for a regiment of the division, but I can't identify it. Yamaguchi is the commander's name of the troop.
Your unit code by the way is indeed part of the 118th Division, last located in N. China. 6046 is for the 225th Independent Infantry Battalion within the 118th Div.
Thanks Tom for the added info.
If you haven't seen these....

Some descriptive info on the sword.
