Map of Japan

A map of Japan reveals that Japan is actually an archipelago of several thousands of islands. Japan is situated between the North Pacific and the Sea of Japan. Comprised of four major islands, it occupies an area of 377, 873 square kilometers; slightly smaller than the state of California or nearly equivalent in size to Italy. Of the four major islands ( Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku), Honshu is the largest and accounts for over 60% of the total area. Contrary to what most may think, more than 70% of the area of Japan is mountainous, and Japan is one the most active earthquake regions in the world. Consequently, numerous natural hot bath resorts are abundant throughout the country, and are an important part of Japanese culture. A further look at the map of Japan shows the topographical features that include spectacular coastlines, towering mountains, meandering streams and clear lakes. Breathtaking views from high peaks like the famous Mt. Fuji, or Fuji-san, Japan's highest and most spiritual mountain top, can be found throughout the country, and are favorite tourist destinations. Visitors to Japan marvel at the unique historical and cultural dichotomy that Japan offers, one that treasures tradition and yet encourages probably the most technologically advanced culture in the world. In Japan, one can eat sushi in Ginza, shop at the finest stores that Tokyo can offer in Shibuya or Shinjuku, or ride the famous high-speed bullet train to ancient Kyoto or Nara. While visiting these ancient cities, or even in Tokyo for that matter, one can then rediscover ancient temples, like the Kinkakuji (Temple of the Golden Pavillion) in Kyoto, participate in an ancient tea ceremony, or witness traditional martial arts like Judo, Karate or Kendo. It is possible to encounter a Zen monk in traditional garb on the ultra modern high-speed bullet train for example, or a Kimono clad woman in a modern shopping mall. It is this diversity that makes Japan so unique. Below is a map of Japan.
