Japan has a history of thousands of years. Most of the time the country isolated itself from the rest of the world on purpose. There was a period of time when Japan opened its doors and in just a few centuries it became modern, industrialized, urbane and one of the major economic forces. Nowadays most of the Japanese innovations and aspects of culture are well-integrated throughout the world. Electronics, sushi, cars, computers are among them. But in spite of all these modern and up-to –date technologies Japan is still a land of mystical and oriental charm.
The country is a real mountainous archipelago of four major islands and about 4000 smaller islands. The main ones are connected by tunnels, bridges and highways. Here you can find the most efficient train system in the world, thanks to which everything runs on time. Though vast majority of Japanese live in cities there is practically no crime and the people are pleased by the details of life ,change of the seasons and arts. The Japanese are extremely friendly and hospitable and courteous.
Old and new, modern and traditional peacefully coexist side-by-side in Japan, in complete harmony.
