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 how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
