List of cities in Japan

List of cities in Japan

This is a list of cities in Japan, by prefecture and within prefecture by founding date (but can be sorted within prefecture by name, population, area, or population density).

For more information about cities in Japan see Municipality of Japan. Most large cities in Japan are cities designated by government ordinance. Some regionally important cities are designated as core cities.

Tokyo is not included on this list, as the city of Tokyo ceased to exist on July 1, 1943. Tokyo now exists as a special "metropolis" prefecture (都 "to"), with 23 "special" wards (with the same status of city) making up the former boundaries of the former city in the eastern half of the prefecture.
