Japan is an archipelago (string of islands) and yet despite its rather small size Japan produces some of the biggest and best things in the world.
There's the metropolis Tokyo and the sandy beaches of lovely Okinawa where residents eat one of the healthiest diets in the world. There are the high speed bullet trains and the mighty snowcapped Mount Fuji.
Japan is the only country in the world with a reigning emperor. It's also the country that originated a healing energy known as Reiki.
