Synopsis

National Geographic requests the pleasure of your company on a journey to the faraway island notion of "Nippon." Japan's name means "origin of the sun" (often translated as Land of the Rising Sun)-a term born of Japan's location to the east of the ancient empires to China.





Take a trip through history to discover the influence that the Chinese exerted on their island neighbours throughout antiquity. Enjoy the scenic island landscape, richly celebrated in Japanese art and literature. Scale the heights and get to know the hilly topography-mountains cover over 75 percent of Japan's landscape. Visit the National Parks that now preserve the country's treasured natural heritage. Meet Japan's industrious people, mainly plains and lowland dwellers. Visit the teeming cities on the river deltas and coastlines, which are among the most populous places on the planet. Follow the remarkable rise of Japan's modern economy, based mainly on the manufacture of high-quality, high-tech consumer goods. Learn how exports to the world's largest markets-including the United States-have made Japan a global economic power; and how the country's average income levels and standards of living are now among the highest in the world. Experience this ethnically homogenous culture, with its unique language and alphabet, and observe the rites and rituals of its two main faiths-Buddhism and Shinto, a religion which originated in Japan.
