Fuchū (府中) is the name of several places in Japan. Japan tries to avoid multiple cities with the same name in order to prevent administrative mistakes due to confusion. There are only two cases of cities in Japan with the same name: Fuchū, Hiroshima and Fuchū, Tokyo; and Date, Hokkaidō and Date, Fukushima. Fuchū means capital of a province (Kokufu). According to the provisions of the 8th-century Ritsuryō system, there was a Fuchū in every administrative province. The placename Fuchū remains in many areas of Japan.
