Japan 日本 is one of my favourite countries. I love the culture, the food and technology. Located in the Pacific Ocean, Japan is an archipelago that comprises 6,852 islands and has the world’s tenth largest population with over 127 million people. The Greater Tokyo Area is the largest metropolitan area in the world with over 30 million residents.

The characters that make up Japan’s name mean “sun origin” and is the reason why Japan is sometimes referred to as “The Land of the Rising Sun”.

Japan is a major economic power, a leading nation in scientific research and has the second largest economy and has the highest life expectancy of any country.

The Japanese art of Manga comic books is not only popular in Japan but all over the world. Manga influenced animation for the film and TV is called Anime and is a big, big favourite here at Web Design Mash which we have featured many times.

  3. While we are discussing about topics relevant to Japan in Photography, Find out exactly what is included within the photographer’s price. How will the pictures be sent to you and when can you expect to receive them? Many photographers offer wedding packages, some including pre-assembled photo albums. Look through the packages and decide which you’d like greatest. A professional photographer may also customize a package to much better suit your needs.
