Map of Japan's Prefectures

日本の地図

This map of Japan shows Japan's 47 prefectures from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south.

The present 47 prefectures date from the reorganization of the old feudal domains (han) which were finally rationalized in 1888.



Hokkaido is the biggest prefecture by area; Kagawa in Shikoku the smallest. In terms of population, Tokyo is the largest Japanese prefecture with over 12,000,000 inhabitants with Tottori the smallest with just over 600,000 people.
