I examined the file admin2Codes.txt and found out that there are cases when several second-level administrative divisions with the equal names correspond to the same first-level administrative division. Let me give an example (from the file admin2Codes.txt):

JP.00.1865070 Asahi-mura Asahi-mura 1865070
JP.00.1865071 Asahi-mura Asahi-mura 1865071
JP.00.1865072 Asahi-mura Asahi-mura 1865072
JP.00.1865073 Asahi-mura Asahi-mura 1865073
JP.00.1865074 Asahi-mura Asahi-mura 1865074
JP.00.1865075 Asahi-mura Asahi-mura 1865075
JP.00.2113074 Asahi-mura Asahi-mura 2113074

These all divisions correspond to the same "JP.00" first-level division and they all have the same name. How can I distinguish them? Were these duplicates made intentionally or it's just a mistake?

There are total 53 groups of duplicates. I can list them if necessary.
