Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi Everyone,

Apologies. I am new to this forum.

My team is looking to map both the Wards and District boundaries for Tokyo. Finding the Ward - ie Chiyoda-ku, is simple enough but we're having difficulty finding the sub-category, ie, the district such as Marunouchi, etc...

Ideally, we are looking for the KML datasets.

I appreciate your insights on where we might find this.

Here's a typical chome boundary mapped in Tokyo, so they do exist. The best way to retrieve them would be an overpass query for boundary=administrative and admin_level=10 or use Wambacher's site to browse (& download) the data).

Thanks so much for your speedy response and help. We used the overpass method to mixed results - it appears that the underlying data for the districts (chome) are incomplete for Tokyo? Again, appreciate your insights. Ben
