Japan is an island country that is seventy % mountainous.

As Japanese archipelago stretches north and south, having many islands, mountains and valleys that split the land, wide varieties of natural environments are observed.

Japan is located upon the edge of several tectonic plates so that it has a number of active volcanoes like Showa-shinzan and Sakurajima. As a result, Japan has a variety of volcanic landscapes, including caldera and fuketsu (a cave from which cold winds blow) that were made because of volcanic activities. There are many geothermal areas that developed hot springs.

Surrounded by seas as well as much precipitation, Japan is a country rich in water so you can find a variety of water scenes. Coastal areas, in particular, you can see beaches, bluffs, sandy beaches, tidelands and coral reefs that serve as habitats for many birds and fishes.
