At the heart of East Asia, the map outlines the unmistakable silhouette of Japan, a nation structured into distinct administrative regions. Comprising four primary islands — Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu — Japan's form is easily recognizable, even without its geographical intricacies.
The map clearly delineates the boundaries of Japan's 47 prefectures, each representing an individual segment within the broader national framework. From the expansive span of Hokkaido in the north to the clustered configuration of the Okinawa Prefecture in the south, the divisions offer a clear perspective on Japan's regional organization.
Without detailing the topography, urban centers, or other landmarks, this map emphasizes the simplicity and clarity of Japan's administrative divisions. It serves as a guide for understanding the nation's structure and offers viewers an unobstructed view of its prefectural layout.
Here's a list of all the 47 prefectures of Japan:
These prefectures span the four major islands of Japan — Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu — and some smaller islands. Each has its own unique cultural, historical, and geographical significance.
I created this HTML5 compatible tool because I paid a developer a ridiculous amount of cash to build a clickable map for me from scratch, and I wanted to save you time, hassle and money.
After you edit your map, click on "Generate Map Script" to retrieve the html that you can copy and paste for your website. You have the option of paying a small fee that will give you the ability to come back and edit the map later.
Thank you for using the tool. Cheers!
