Japan is such a cool country. “Why?” I hear you ask… let me tell you.
For a start, it’s made up of thousands of islands – 6,852, to be exact. All these islands make for some beautiful scenery and also a country that is made up of loads of places with their own unique character.
It’s a popular country too. It’s the 11th largest population in the world with over 127 million inhabitants.
However, living in Japan does come with some risks.
It sits on an area of the ocean which is known as the “Pacific Ring of Fire”. Terrifying, right?
It means any country sitting on it will experience a lot of volcanoes and earthquakes.
For example, in 2011 Japan was hit by an earthquake that had a magnitude of 9. This in turn caused a tsunami which resulted in huge devastation and loss of life.
Being a country of islands, surrounded by the sea, it only makes sense that the Japanese love to eat fish. Who can blame then too? It’s so tasty!
Despite their love for healthy food, the national sport of Japan is sumo wrestling.
If your unfamiliar with the sport, then imagine two big people battling it out while wearing a tiny black diaper. It’s very entertaining!
As Japan’s terrain is mostly forest or mountain, making farming very difficult in the country.
In Japan, modern technology often clashes with tradition. That’s what gives the country it’s incredibly unique look.
Japan is famed for it’s crazy inventions. But while they may seem a bit bizarre at first, they prove themselves to be very practical.
