Place names and POIs


CJKI’s Japanese-Multilingual Place Names and Points-of-Interest (POIs) Database provides comprehensive coverage of Japanese place names, as well as points-of-interest and facilities in Japan. Points-of-interest, or “POIs”, are the kind of entities that appear in maps and tourist guides, and are needed for detailed maps of Japan. This is an ambitious, large-scale resource of Japanese place names and POIs in CJK, European, and other Asian languages like Thai, Vietnamese, and Indonesian. JMP is extremely useful for machine translation and neural machine translation applications, which frequently fail to translate Japanese proper nouns in general, and Japanese POIs in particular.

Currently JMP, which is being constantly proofread and updated, covers over 3.1 million entries in the following 14 languages (Japanese plus 13 languages): Japanese, English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Vietnamese, Indonesian, Thai, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean.

The database covers the following types of Japanese POIs:

・Government offices

・Educational Institutions

・Public facilities



・Airports and harbors

・Commercial facilities

・Amusement facilities

・Place names (towns and cities)

・Town sections
