More Info

Lying just off the coast of continental Asia, Japan consists of approximately 6,852 islands, of which the four largest contain most of the population of 127 million. The majority of the nation’s terrain is rugged, mountainous, and volcanic, while being blanketed in thick forest. The large scale of territory, differences in geography, and varying climates also create a diverse ecology of flora and fauna, including some rare and endangered species.
