Japan Prefecture Map

You can easily create a Japan Prefecture map using Mapline. Prefectures are the 1st level administrative division in Japan. They are further divided into cities and districts. Each district is sub-divided into towns and villages. As the capital of Japan, Tokyo has the features of both a prefecture and a city so it serves the role as a merged city-prefecture.

Using Mapline, you can easily create a Japan Prefecture map. The 47 prefectures of Japan are divided into 43 prefectures proper, 2 urban prefectures, 1 circuit or territory, and 1 metropolis.
