Shakkan-hō is the traditional Japanese system of measurement. The name shakkan-hō originates from the name of two of the units, the shaku, a unit of length, and the kan, a mass measurement.

The tsubo, which is essentially the area of two standard sized tatami mats (tatami have an aspect ratio of 2:1, so two side by side form a square), is still commonly used in discussing land pricing in Japan. Note that actual tatami vary in size regionally, though legally the area of a tsubo is standardized. The larger units are also commonly used by Japanese farmers for discussing the sizes of fields.
