Japan

Country Introduction:

Japan is home to Mt. Fuji, sushi, geishas, kimonos, paper walls, cherry blossoms, anime, sumo wrestlers, and much more. It is located in the Pacific Ocean, east of the Sea of Japan, China, Russia, North Korea, and South Korea. The country is an archipelago of 6,852 islands and has a population of approximately 128 million people. It is considered rude to say 'no' in Japan; so, most Japanese use the word tabun, meaning 'maybe', instead.
