Welcome to Japan!

Japan is situated in north eastern Asia between the North Pacific and the Sea of Japan. The area of Japan is 177,873 square kilometres, nearly equivalent to Germany and Switzerland combined or slightly smaller than California. With total population of 127 million. The Japan is covered by four major islands: Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu and surrounded by more than 4,000 smaller islands. Among the vibrant green of the mountains, amidst the fluttering cherry blossom petals, within the transition of the four seasons, people see colours. Within characters painstakingly written by brush, in Japanese-style homes fragrant of wood, in tableware that colours the dining table, people admire shapes. Japan's colours and shapes are messages that convey spirit and culture.
