Jurisdictions

Japan.prefectures.png
Japan is divided into a number of areas called 'Prefectures' (abbreviated 'Pref.'). These are analogous to states or provinces in other countries. They were created after the Meiji Restoration (1868) by consolidating feudal domains.[1] Some include a city by the same name within their boundaries.

Cities, Towns, and Villages

Within each prefecture is a number of cities, towns and villages, The larger cities are very populous, while many towns and villages are quite small and often can border each other in a way that they are at times considered part of a larger city. Most though have some space between them.
