About the Prefectures:
Japan is divided into a total of 47 parts. However, they are not all called ken (prefecture). Of the 47, 43 are called “ken” — (prefecture). 2 are called ‘fu’ (Osaka & Kyoto). 1 is called “do” (Hokkai DO). 1 is called ‘to’ (Tokyo to)

一都一道二府四十三県
itto, ichi dou | ni fu | yonjuu san ken
one “to,” one “do” | 2 “fu” | 43 “ken”
