This concept list was the basis for several lexicostatistical studies of the Japanese dialects. The list diverges from Swadesh's list of 200 items especially in that the author lists additional alternatives for certain of the test items (numbered as a and b). This list itself was published already earlier than the source we quote here (Hattori 1954). We quote the later list for practical reasons, since it is taken from a text written in English, and our team currently lacks Japanese speaking colleagues.
