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

English Nara Prefecture Map

For Japanese, it is not difficult to read and write the names of local government (cities, towns and villages). 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 school 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 Nara 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 Nara, there are 12 cities, 15 towns and 12 villages. In total 39 地方自治体 [CHIHOU JICHITAI] (ちほうじちたい) “local governments”.
