Transcript of Korea
The tradition of gardening in Japan ties ritual and religion to garden design and horticulture techniques. Modern theater in Japan draws from many influences, including the traditional kabuki. This drama genre uses dance and dramatic performance to tell a story. Traditional Japanese art explores the elements of nature, and modern artists working in Japan integrate both the traditional with the modern social themes. The Japanese tradition of drinking tea dates to the ninth century, but the formal tea service developed during the 13th century. The chanoyu involves a tea master, special tea cups and brewing equipment, and room screens and an incense burner to complete the setting for the elaborate service.
The first permanent capital was founded in 710 at Nara, which became a center of Buddhist art, religion and culture. The current imperial family emerged in about 700, but until 1868 (with few exceptions) had high prestige but little power. By 1550 or so political power was subdivided into several hundred local units, or so called "domains" controlled by local "daimyo each with his own force of samurai (Japanese: 侍) warriors. Tokugawa Ieyasu came to power in 1600, gave land to his supporters, set up his "bakufu" ( feudal government) at Edo (modern Tokyo).
The "Tokugawa period" was prosperous and peaceful and Japan terminated the Christian missions and cut off almost all contact with the outside world. In the 1860s the Meiji period began, and the new national leadership systematically ended feudalism and transformed an isolated, underdeveloped island country into a world power that closely followed Western models.

Japan is an island nation in East Asia comprising a stratovolcanic archipelago extending along the Pacific coast of Asia. Measured from the geographic coordinate system, Japan stretches from 24° to 46° north latitude and from 123° to 146° east longitude. The country is southeast of the Russian Far East, separated by the Sea of Okhotsk; slightly east of Korea, separated by the Sea of Japan; and east-northeast of China and Taiwan, separated by the East China Sea. The closest neighboring country to Japan is the Russian Federation.The major islands, sometimes called the "Home Islands", are (from north to south) Hokkaidō, Honshū (the "mainland"), Shikoku and Kyshū. There are also 2,456 islands,including Okinawa, and islets, some inhabited and others uninhabited.
Over 70% of Japan consists of mountains. The country also has over 200 volcanoes.
Japan has the second lowest homicide rate in the world, but is also home to the extremely spooky suicide forest, aokigahara.
Animated Japanese films and television shows (.i.e.: Anime) account for 60% of the world’s animation-based entertainment. So successful is animation in Japan, that there are almost 130 voice-acting schools in the country.

Ethnic Groups: 98.5% Japanese
Why Japan is Called Land of the Rising Sun
Japan is an archipelago, or a group of islands, about 100 miles east of theAsian mainland. The ancient Japanese knew about China and Korea, but they did not know of any land east of their islands. They believed theirs was the first land awakened by the rising sun. The Japanese call their land Nippon, meaning "Land of the Rising Sun." The Europeans learned of Japan from the Chinese, who mispronounced the name as Zipango. That word eventually evolved into Japan.
