Japan consists of 47 prefectures. The characteristics of each prefecture, such as the cityscape and gourmet food, vary greatly. Also, as the Japanese word "県民性" (Kenminsei, literally "the characteristics of prefectural citizens") exists, the characters of the residents differ depending on the prefecture. Knowing the characteristics of each prefecture may be useful in deciding where to go for your next trip to Japan. Here in FUN!
