Japanese administration of Kurile Islands

Does anybody here know how Japan handled the Kurile Islands administratively speaking? Were they part of Hokkaido prefecture?

(Along similar lines, was Karafuto ever made into a prefecture? What about the Korean, Chinese and Taiwanese colonies? I don't think they were, but on a map in The Japanese Colonial Empire ed. by Myers and Peattie, there's a label for "Kwangtung Prefecture," which has always confused me - was the Kwangtung Lease Territory formally annexed at some point? Help!)
