Japanese Chinkai Guard District

The Imperial Navy established guard districts in the outer portions of the Japanese Empire. They resembled naval districts but did not have their own yards, barracks, or training schools. They were similar to the Sea Frontiers of the U.S. Navy.

The Chinkai Guard District had responsibility for Korea.
