The first census was surveyed every six years since 1721 and finished in 1852, because the confusion after the Perry Expedition and death of Tokugawa Ieyoshi in 1853 postponed the calculation process of the demographic data collected in 1852, according to Suijin Roku .Some of population censuses during Edo era remain recorded in diaries or official texts as below.However, most of the original koseki texts were lost because they were to be preserved only 30 years.

Population of Shuri, the capital of the Kingdom of Ryūkyū, is also not estimated, while Yokohama was only a small village of less than 100 houses until the opening of the port in 1859.

Estimated populations of castle towns contain considerable errors compare to those of the business towns (Ōsaka, Sakai, Hyōgo, Niigata, Nagasaki, Hakodate and Fushimi) with less samurai-class inhabitants, because demographics of samurai classes and their servants (or dwellers of samurai districts) were recorded separately or kept secret, which easily lead to the loss of original data after the abolishment of the Han system.

Even the peak estimated population of Edo varies from 788,000 to 1,500,000.

For example, Yoshida (1910) estimated the peak population of Edo (shortly before Perry's expeditions) at 1,400,000 based on the average amount of rice carried into Edo (1,400,000 koku per year).

system by the Tokugawa shogunate, several less reliable sources remain upon which an estimate of the population of Japan can be made.

The first record of the population of Japan is the "Records of Three Kingdoms" (simplified Chinese: was established in 670 or 690, which was to be rechecked every 6 years.

The total population of Japan on July 28, 1870 (32,773,698) was collected by different systems of domains, but included all the registered people of all classes.), 30,837,271 citizens (heimin, which includes ca.

550,000 shin-heimin and 2,358 unclassified people in Sakhalin.) After the Battle of Sekigahara, Yamaguchi declined, while Edo (Tōkyō) and Sumpu (Shizuoka) became important under Tokugawa shougunate.

The population of samurai class and their servants as well as imperial families and noblemen was officially excluded from the census.

In addition, the demographic data were summarized by individual domains according to their rules, where babies and children, Buddhist monks, nuns and Shintō priests, discriminated classes of eta and hinin were sometimes excluded from the total population. The estimated population of Japan in 1600 ranges from 11 to 22 million, then a rapid population growth took place during the early Edo era to bring Japan to a country of about 30 million inhabitants by 1721, remain recorded.

Similarly to the total population, recorded provincial population excludes ruling and exceptional classes, while that in 1873 (after Meiji Restoration) includes all the registered people.
