I think it is not needed to put any place tags if you just want to tag
administrative divisions. You simply add boundary=administrative,
admin_level=*, name=* wikipedia, population etc. to the elements. There is

If it is not sufficiently representing your reality, discuss it on the
local ML and update the suggested values for Japan.
