Images of Japan - Tokyo, Kyoto and temples


Japanese parents

Japan is a beautiful country. Culture is certainly very different from the Western world, but you will not feel lost. Here you will find a selection of photos of the country of the Rising Sun. Images of the Japanese capital, Tokyo City, but also with its famous Kyoto temples, geishas and streets. Nature plays an important role in the urban environment of Japan. Traditional gardens are, among others, one of the signs.

Japan is an island country in East Asia, located between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of ​​Japan, east of China, Korea and Russia, and north of Taiwan. Etymologically, the kanji (Chinese characters) that make up the name of Japan mean "country (国, kuni) of origin (本, hon) of the Sun (日, ni)"; this is how Japan is referred to as the "land of the rising sun".

Since 1945, Japan has been an archipelago of 6,852 islands of more than 100 square meters, of which the four largest are Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu, which together represent 95 percent of the country's land area. The archipelago stretches for more than three thousand kilometers. Most islands are mountainous, sometimes volcanic; for example, the highest peak in Japan, Mount Fuji (3,776 m), is a volcano (inactive since 1707). Japan is the eleventh most populous country in the world, with about 127 million inhabitants for 377,488 km2 (337 inhabitants / km2), most of which is concentrated on the narrow coastal plains of southern Honshū and north from Shikoku and Kyushu, forming an almost continuously urbanized ensemble called "Japanese Megalopolis" or "Taiheiyō Belt" (太平洋 ベ ル ト, Taiheiyō beruto ?, literally "Pacific Belt"). Greater Tokyo, which includes the capital Tokyo and several surrounding prefectures, is the largest metropolitan area in the world, with more than 35 million inhabitants. The city was first world financial center in 1990. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
