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?!

Wow I only got 10 but that was still worth 3 points. I recognised several once revealed but did not know them as such.

I also got 10 correct but only got 1 point. I guess a lot more people who know their prefectures have taken this in the last three years.

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.
