Regions of Japan
Japan is in the continent Asia. Japan is separated into eight regions. The eight regions are: Kyushu, Shikoku, Chugoku, Kinki, Chuba, Kanto, Tohoku and Hokkaido. Japan consists of four main islands, these islands are Kyushu, Hokkaido, Honshu and Shikoku. Japan is a small country, but has a lot of people living there. The population of Japan is 127.57 million. Japan has more people than Australia even though it is smaller.

Summer is from June-August. Summer in Japan usually has rain for about three to four weeks.
Autumn is form September-November. The temperature in Autumn is usually around 8-10 degrees Celsius and there are normally light breezes.
Many seas surround Japan, so it could be very cold and windy if you live near the sea. The north and south have very different climates. For example, the north could be cold while the south is hot. In spring many flowers bloom. Winter doesn't usually fall below zero degrees Celsius.

Hiroshima Peace Park is also one of the landmarks in Japan,- which has the statue of Sadako, who was a young girl who lived in Hiroshima and sadly passed away because of an atomic bomb which caused her to get leukemia.
Industries and Trade
There are many renowned industries in Japan, such as Toyota, Sony, Panasonic, Honda, Toshiba, Nintendo and many more. Many of them produce electronics such as Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba and Nintendo. I

They also import a lot of goods from other countries. They import goods like coal, iron-oar and many more from Australia.
Clothing and Housing
Japanese clothing is very unique. There are many different pieces of clothing in this culture, such as a kimono, which is worn by women on special occasions like weddings and birthdays. A kimono is usually made out of silk. On normal days, they usually wear jeans and t-shirts.
In a traditional Japanese home, there are many rooms. All the rooms could be altered and could be used as a bedroom, study and a living room. The first room that you will see in a traditional Japanese home will be the entryway (genkan) where you will be permitted to take off your shoes, put them on the floor and point the tips of your shoes to the outside. The next room will be the kitchen. They use microwaves instead of ovens. It is uncommon for households to have dishwashers and most homes have built-in dish dryers. The washitsu is the next room, the washitsu is a traditional Japanese room covered with tatami mats which is made out of straw. Tatami mats are meant to give you the experience of walking on grass. In a washitsu there are paper sliding screens called 'shoji'. There are also sliding partitions called 'fasuma'. The next room is the toilet which is always in a separate room because it used to an image of being dirty. They used to have squat toilets, but now they have normal, modern washlets. Next is the bathroom the bath and shower are together. The Japanese people usually sit down while they have a shower.
Food and Culture
Japanese food is very delicate and delicious. Their main food is rice. A lot of their food contains rice. They usually use chopsticks to eat their food. One very popular food, that is eaten all other the world and enjoyed by a lot of people, is sushi. Sushi is basically rice and another ingredient, usually raw fish or seafood wrapped in nori or seaweed. Nowadays, the Japanese people eat food all over the world, just like we do.
In Japan, there are two types of cultures, the first one is traditional culture and the second one is modern culture. Anime, which is a Japanese cartoon, have been around for a long time. There are many anime series such as Doraemon and Howl's Moving Castle just to name a few. There are many concerts held there. Many of the concerts are about classical music. Classical music originally was from the West, but Japan started listening to it and enjoying it too. In Japan, there are many different types of performing arts, such as Noh, kabuki and bunraku. Bunraku is puppet theater, kabuki is a form of classical theater and Noh is an ancient form of musical theater and started a long time ago.

Language and Numbers
There are three types of characters used in Japanese. The Japanese used to have the same writing as ancient Chinese these were made one thousand years ago. These characters are called kanji and were originally pictures, but now their writing has developed and changed. The numbers in Japanese characters are similar to chinese characters.
