This is a map of the old administrative division of Japan into provinces. This division was in effect between the Kamakura period and the end of the Edo period, i.e. from the late 12th century to 1868. Note that Ezo (present Hokkaidō) was not a province, but is included anyway. Some of the islands northeast of Hokkaidō have been controlled by Russia since the end of WWII. The provincial division was later superseded but the present 47 prefectures.
