Japan is a country in East Asia, located in the Pacific Ocean, and made up of four main islands, Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Shikoku. Japan has about 127 million inhabitants, and the main cities are Tokyo (capital), Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Kobe, and Kyoto. Though now a democracy, Japan still has the oldest royal family in place, and is headed by an emperor, called Tenno. Speaking of old, Japan’s population has the highest life expectancy in the world, which can probably be connected to its marvelous cuisine, which focuses heavily on seafood, with Sushi being a well know example. It has the second largest economy in the world, only out-done by the United States, and exports many well-known products all over the world (e.g. cars, electronics). Go and fly with Austrian Airlines to Japan, a truly fascinating Asian destination.
