About

Located in the Pacific Ocean, Japan lies to the east of China, Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea in the south. The kanji characters that make up Japan's name mean "sun-origin", which is why Japan is sometimes identified as the "Land of the Rising Sun".

The combined area of largest four islands of Japan, Honshū, Hokkaidō, Kyūshū and Shikoku, is 97% of the country's total land area. The capital city (Tokyo), Otsu, and Hiroshima are on the island of Honshū. Most of the islands are mountainous and many are volcanic.
