Japan has many amazing prefectures and cities dotted all over it’s 4 islands. With this page you can look more closely into each area of Japan and get an overall understanding. I’ve been researching the subject of Japanese and Japanese history, geography and news since I was in high school and I still hardly feel I can be called a professional, but to be fair I know more than most especially outside Japan and my desire to continue to learn about Japan is my greatest strengths when it comes to say.. a Japanese website/blog!
I do highly suggest checking out the map quiz above to really learn the prefectures quickly!
