Also, if this happens, as someone who knows Japanese, it'd be cool if when you typed in the answer, the name written in Kanji was shown.

1600+ how has this not gotten the star treatment?!

Could Gumma be allowed for Gunma? There are many ways to transcribe Japanese after all.

Fun quiz and great for learning the locations of the prefectures. Now when I hear a prefecture mentioned in the news or a drama/anime, I have an idea where it lies.

I believe the Amani Islands are part of the Kagoshima prefecture instead of the Okinawa prefecture. However, I don't know how changing the titles of the path IDs would work for this map.

Only got 9, quite embarrassing, but proud of Kochi and Aomori.
