JAPANESE LICENSE PLATES EXPLAINED
Cars in Japan have license plates. In Japanese they are called namba- pure-to.
These license plates are issued by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport of the National Government for most vehicles while ones with smaller engines are issued by the local municipality.
The top line contains a Prefecture character and a 2 or 3-digit code show vehicle purpose (vehicle class code).
Japan is divided into 9 regions, which are split into 47 smaller prefectures. Prefectures of Japan (都道府県, todōfuken) are one of the basic local entities of Japan. They are the 47 subdivisions of the country. Prefectures are the governmental bodies of Japan which are larger than cities, towns, and villages. At present, there are a total of 106 different issuing municipalities covering the 47 prefectures, territories and metropolises of Japan, each with their respective names displayed in Kanji (plate name) but the Japanese Ministry of Communications also allows some of the more representative municipal divisions of the city to their own smaller city name listed in the “plate name”.
