GeographyLocated in Asia off the Eastern coast, Japan is an archipelago (meaning: string of islands). It is made up of nearly 4000 islands! But there are four major islands: Hokkaido, Honshu, Kyushu and Shikoku.

HistoryBelieve it or not, but a long time ago there weren’t any people in Japan. But people eventually came around 30,000 years ago. In that time period, the major islands (Hokkaido, Honshu, Kyushu and Shikoku) were attached to the countries of Siberia and Korea, therefore people crossed to Japan on foot. Around 12 000 years ago, the first community (Jomon culture) rose. A group of people, called the Ainu people, arrived on boat from Siberia around the same time period. Surviving for thousands of years, the Jomon and Ainu people preyed on, fished and collected plants. A while after in 300 B.C., another group of people, called the Yayoi, arrived at the island of Honshu. They were from the neighbouring countries of Korea and China. The Yayoi were experienced weavers, instrument manufacturers and farmers. Eventually, they commenced growing rice in submerged fields, called paddy fields.

LanguageThe official language for Japan is Japanese.
