The service determines the placename in Japan specified by location parameters such as latitude and longitude. Place specifications documented include the location's prefecture, municipality, and "Aza" or section. Only the Japanese language is supported.
API methods support specification of a location by latitude and longitude, with an optional radius defining an area around the designated point. Separate radius parameters may be entered for street address and "Aza" (section) designation. Methods return named prefecture, municipality, and local values such as street address, along with Aza.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
