Are you looking for Japanese region information to use in your Japanese store? The search is over!

Japanese Region extension expands your default Magento region data displayed to customers in the dropdown menu. When the country Japan is selected, the list of all Japanese regions/prefectures will be available in your store whenever and wherever it is necessary. 

Since Magento1.x, out of the box Magento does not include Japanese region data. Fortunately, this extension adds the Japanese regions both in Japanese and English language into your Magento store. Without region data on database (directory_country_region & directory_country_region_name), customers cannot choose region via select box/dropdown options. They have to input region's name manually.. Well, not anymore!

By having Japanese region information, it would be useful for the localization of your customer's billing and shipping addresses. Furthermore, tax and shipping costs will be calculated conveniently based on the selected Japanese region. If you wish to sell or ship to Japan, it will be very advantageous for your store and for your customers.
