Chugoku Region

The Chugoku Region (中国地方, Chūgoku Chihō, literally "central country") makes up the western part of Japan's main island Honshu. It is commonly subdivided into the heavily urbanized and industrialized Sanyo Region along the Seto Inland Sea coast and the much more rural Sanin Region along the Sea of Japan coast.
