Japan, a constitutional monarchy and empire state, is located on the eastern margin of Asia and consists of four major islands:

  • Hokkaido
  • Kyushu

and many small islands. It is separated from the mainland of Asia by the Sea of Japan. To the east is the Pacific Ocean.

The country is made up of six chains of steep serrated mountains, which contain about 60 active volcanoes.

Earthquakes are frequent and widespread and often accompanied by giant waves (tsunami).

Summers are warm and humid and winters mild, except on Hokkaido which is covered in snow in winter.
