Template talk:Regions and administrative divisions of Japan
|WikiProject Japan||(Rated Template-class)|
How is having the flag of Japan on the mediawiki being partisan?
Now, the "subdivisions of countries" mediawikis all have the flags of their respective countries.

There was a reason I changed those [ foo prefecture ] links to [ foo Prefecture ]... the link should match the article since the link will not be disabled on the appropriate page if it is going through a redirect. There are 2 options, change the template or MOVE the articles (an option that is unavailable to me). -- EmperorBMA|話す 16:26, 7 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Hello, don't you think Honshū (the biggest island) would deserve to appear on this template?
- This template is based on the official geographical division used by the government. Honshu is commonly subdivided into the five regions: Tohoku, Kanto, Chubu, Kinki (Kansai) and Chugoku. Although Honshu is a single island, these regions have many differences, including the historical East/West or East/Central/West divide. So "Honshu" is too broad a category here.
- As for the "Regions" part, I think we need subdivisions of Hokkaido, Tohoku, and Kanto mentioned in this article ja:日本の地域:
- Hokkaido: Dōhoku (North), Dōtō (East), Dōō (Central) and Dōnan (South)
- Tohoku: Kita-Tōhoku (North) and Minami-Tōhoku (South)
- Kanto: Kita-Kantō (North) and Minami-Kantō (South)
