English Kyoto Prefecture Map – All local governments (Cities, Towns, Villages) included

English Kyoto Prefecture Map

For Japanese, it is not difficult to read and write the names of local government (cities, towns and village). Also, if the name of the area is in the vicinity of where you live, you may have heard of many place names, such as station names, name of local governments, high s-chool names. However, for foreigners, it is very difficult to understand how to read the names of regions in Japanese, as they are different from the normal way of reading them. In spite of the fact that it is difficult to read the Kanji itself.
So I created a English Kyoto Map with all the cities, towns, villages and areas listed on it in Kanji, Hiragana and Romaji, which should be very helpful for foreigners.

In Kyoto, there are 15 cities, 10 towns and 1 village. In total 26 地方自治体 [CHIHOU JICHITAI] (ちほうじちたい) “local governments”.
