Japan is an archipelago of 6,852 islands, although a majority of its landmass is accounted for by the 4 largest islands.
Despite being a relatively small country, Japan’s capital, Tokyo, is home to 36 million hard-working citizens, making it the largest metropolitan area in the globe.
Also, even though Japan is densely populated, the Japanese have one of the highest standards of living, while also having the highest life expectancy in the world.
Japan is also one of the most advanced and tech-friendly countries in the world. Can you imagine a world without karaoke, the Gameboy, or a Prius?
Also, did you know that the Japanese characters that make up Japan’s name mean sun-origin and that Japan is often referred to as the “Land of the Rising Sun”?
