Japan is in an island nation in Southeast
Asia. It has landforms like beaches,
mountains, volcanoes and more.
The ways Japan interact with the environment include paving land to be roads, using terrain to make farm land, using land to make buildings and so on. The environment has made Japan adapt to where they build their houses, buildings and roads and where they can live. For example a house could not be built on the top of Mt Fuji but a pleasant condo on the side of a beach is very possible.
Japan used to be as polluted as China is today but their cities are now considered some of the cleanest in the world! With mandatory recycling and Prius taxis, Japan is doing its part to help cut down on global pollution. Japan recycles so much more then most countries. They have twice the UK's plastic recycling rate with a whopping 77%, that's more than 20% above our plastic rate too.
