Japan: Land of the Rising Sun




A country found in East Asia, Japan (日本) is a stratovolcanic archipelago composed of 6,852 islands. Also called Nippon or Nihon, Japan is a major economic power and is the world's third-largest economy.



The sun has always had a special place in Japanese culture. The ancient Chinese, seeing the sun rise over the islands to the east called them ji-pon (which translates to the source of the sun) Hence as time passed the name stuck and eventually became Japan. The country is categorized into four major islands; Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Shikoku.

Honshu (which translates to "Main Island" or "Main Province") is the largest and most populated island of Japan. Tokyo, the de facto capital of the country is located here.

Hokkaido (which means "Northern Sea Circuit") is the second-largest and northernmost island of Japan.

Kyushu (which means "Nine Provinces") is the third-largest island of Japan. It is also the most southwesterly of its four main islands.

Shikoku (which means "Four Provinces") is the smallest and least populous of the four main islands of Japan.



The local inhabitants of the archipelago are generally called Japanese. They have one of the richest cultures on the planet that is preserved and followed to this day.
