Japan

Japan is an island nation with a population of 127 million people. It is an old country with a history dating back over 2,000 years. The written language is based heavily on Chinese characters that were borrowed from China around         700 AD but the spoken language is completely different from Chinese. Japan is a combination of huge, metropolitan areas such as Tokyo and Osaka with traditional rural areas along in the interior of the country and along the west coast (Sea of Japan). We exchange with two districts. One of them is in the Kanazawa area on the west coast; the other is a rural/suburban area outside Tokyo
