Regions of Japan
Japan is in the continent Asia and

the population of Japan is about 127 million. Japan

is divided into eight
regions, Hokkaido, Chub u,
Shikoku, Tohoku, Kasai, Kyushu, Kanto and Kinki. Each region has its own dialect, customs and unique traditional culture.
Climate and Weather
Spring (March – May)
The plum blossom is a good sign that the cold winter will soon end and spring is just around the corner, followed by the cherry blossom is the national flower of Japan. Splendid views of mountains, fields and gardens all around in gentle pink abound in spring!
Summer (June – August)
The Japanese summer begins in June with a three to four week rainy season. It becomes seriously hot from July onward and many Japanese enjoy having baths in the sea and relaxing at cool resorts in mountainous areas.
Autumn (September – November)
In Japan Autumn always brings such freshness with a light breeze and cool temperature after the hot summer. Chrysanthemums create beautiful displays with their abundance of flowers to enchant visitors to parks and gardens.
Flora and Fauna
Japan is home to many beautiful flora and fauna,
especially the Sakura which is the cherry blossom. The Japanese celebrate that time of year with hamani parties under the beautiful trees! Hamani means cherry blossom viewing.
There is also the Ume which is a Japanese plum and they bloom several ahead of the cherry blossoms. Did you know? Plum blossoms are an early sign of spring. Another popular plant is the Monji which is a Japanese maple tree. The Japanese maple is the king of spectacular Autumn colors and it is widely used as a decorative tree in gardens. Matsu is a pine tree in Japan and it is green throughout the year. The pine tree symbolizes youth and is used as decorative plant in most Japanese gardens.
Winter (December – February)
In Winter is also quite dry and very often sunny. Central Japan and Northern Japan are highly reputed regions for winter sports.
Japan is one of the most popular travel destinations
in the world. It is a unique blend of traditional and modern, with many temples and buildings. But the top 10 are, Golden Pavilion, Mount Fuji, Tokyo Imperial Palace, Tokyo Tower, Todaiji Temple, Great Buddha of Kamakura, Hemiji Castle, Kiyomizu-dera, Jigokudani Monkey Park and Hiroshima Peace Memorial. All these are great places tourist visit during there time in Japan and alot of Japanese people!
First of the Golden Pavilion was originally built
in the 14th century. Unfortunately, the pavilion was burnt down in 1950 by a young monk who had become obsessed with it. Five years later, the temple was rebuilt as an exact copy of the original.The last one is the Hiroshima Peace Memorial.
The Hiroshima Peace Memorial is a tribute to the lives lost when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. This harsh reminder of a world at war reminds visitors of the importance of human life and honors the victims.

Traditional housing and clothing
Food and Culture
In Japan every person can enjoy a variety of interesting and delicious food including tako-yaki, sushi, sashimi, and tempura.
Tempura consists of vegetables or seafood that are covered in a light batter and then deep fried. Tempura was originally brought to Japan by the people of Portugal. Now, tempura is one of the most popular foods in Japan and also one of it's best-known exports. Tempura-ya can be anything from low-priced chain fast food joints to classy fine dining establishments. Tayo-yaki is a ball shaped dumpling made from diced or baby octopus, batter, tenkasu, green onion and pickled ginger. It is topped with mayonnaise, okonomiyaki sauce, katsuobushi and anaori. Sushi is a dish of rice cooked with vinegar topped with seafood into rolls.

The Japanese education consists, six years of elementary school, each three years of junior and senior high school and four years of university or two years of junior college. The compulsory stages in education are elementary school and junior high school. Over 90% of all students also graduate from high school and over 40% from university or junior college.Japanese school year starts in April and consists of three terms, separated by short holidays in spring and winter, and a one month long summer break. Although many of those days are spent preparing for annual school festivals and events such as Culture Day, Sports Day, and school excursions.Traditionally, Japanese students have attended school for half a day on Saturdays.Japanese students have subjects like English,Maths,Music,Social studies and more.

Industries: Manufacturing, construction, distribution, real estate, services, and communication are Japan's major industries today.

Japan has both modern and traditional styles of housing.The traditional Japanese house is a beautiful sight to behold.The traditional Japanese house made of wood is expected to last about twenty years before having to be repaired or rebuilt. In a Japanese house none of the rooms have a certain use except the entryway, the kitchen,the bathing room and the toilet.Any room can easily be a living area, a bedroom, a dining room or any combination. Large rooms are partitioned by fusuma, sliding doors made of wood and thick paper.Windows are made of wood and shoji paper, which is thin enough to let the light shine through.Even modern Japanese houses tend to have one traditional Japanese room, called a washitsu. This room is sparsely if at all furnished, and has tatami mats on the floor. Tatami are smooth and firm enough to walk on.When people enter the house the first room they enter is the entryway where, they leave their shoes, pointed toward the door.The Japanese re-use bathwater, either for other bathers or for washing laundry, so it is important not to dirty the water with soap and dirt.The toilet in Japan can either be a Western style toilet, or a squat toilet installed in the floor.

The traditional dress of Japan is the kimono. Kimonos, are generally made of silk, have large sleeves and reach from the shoulders all the way down to the heels. Kimonos are now usually worn only on special occasions, such as the Shichi-Go-San festival, weddings, and ceremonies.
