- Japan has 120 million people yet is roughly the size of California. The country is made up of 47 prefectures
(called ken). Tokyo Metropolitan prefecture itself consists of 23 wards (ku), 27 cities
(shi), one county (gun) and four island districts (shi-cho). Japan is a living paradox and a land of contrasts.
You walk through central Tokyo and will see a briefcase toting businesswoman off to a power
lunch alongside a woman in an elegant kimono headed for tea ceremony. Pop culture abounds,
but the traditional arts also remain. Modernization and commercialism have been wholeheartedly embraced
but in a uniquely Japanese way that could not be replicated elsewhere in the world. Japan is also arguably
the most homogenous society in the world, however if you live in one of the commercial centers it's easy to stay
immersed in the international community, western restaurants and gaijin watering holes.
Foreigners in Japan often comment on the pinpoint efficiency of the transportation system,
remark on how such a crowded place runs so harmoniously and that it would never work that well
in there home country. Then they try and find a cash machine after 8pm or follow the paper trails
at banks or government offices. Japan's natural environment is just as varied as it's social
landscape. The country itself is 78% mountainous,
yet most of the population is concentrated in the major metropolitan areas. Most visitors that
come Japan fall into two categories: business travelers that mainly stay in the metropolitan
centers or tourists who've come to see the unique cultural areas such as Kyoto, Nara and
Kamakura. Surprisingly, Japan has the most diverse climate and natural
environment in Asia. Head north and ski or snowboard world-class resorts
in Hokkaido. The central mountainous area features the Northern, Central and Southern Alps and
was the host to the 1998 winter Olympics. Western Japan has moderate temperatures, while
southern Kyushu area is more tropical. The country is an island nation, so beach lovers can easily
escape to a number of sandy destinations, Okinawa being the most popular.
