JAPAN-Land of Rising Sun

Hi friends....

                                                             Japan After Tsunami

'Japan' ....I think there is no one in this world who has not heard the name of this small country
From last one week 'Japan' is shown in all the news channels in Television.
Yes everybody is looking towards this small country.But How much you know about this country,I have collected some information about this,go through this.
      There is famous saying in Kannada 'murthy chikkadaru keerthi doddadu'(means small in size big in fame). This saying is perfectly meant for Japan.Being small country it has made very big name in the world and its the one of the most developed nation in the world.
      Japanese names for Japan are "Nippon" and "Nihon" .Japan is an island nation in East Asia located in pacific ocean,it lies to the east of the Sea of Japan, China, North Korea, South Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhots in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the south.
      Japan has 6852 islands. The four largest islands are Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku, together accounting for ninety-seven percent of Japan's land area. Japan has the world's Tenth largest population, with over 127 million people.
Capital                   : Tokyo(largest city in Japan)
National language : Japanese
Government          : Unitary Parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy
Emperor                :Akihito
Prime Minister     : Naoto Kan
Currency               : Yen
Calling code          : 81

              We also heard the name of Japan during world war 2 when US had put atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki which are two big cities of Japan.During that time it was fully destroyed,but they recovered within no time.Japan maintains one of the  largest military budgets in the world.
             Coming to economy of the this country,as of 2010 Japan is the 3rd largest national economy in the world,after the US and China,in terms of nominal GDP and PPP.And also it is fourth largest exporter and fifth largest importer in the world.Japan has large industrial capacity,and is home to some of the largest and most technologically advanced producers of motor vehicles, electronics, machine tools, steel and nonferrous metals, ships, chemical substances, textiles, and processed foods.Some of the largest enterprises in Japan include Toyota, Nintendo, NTT DoCoMo, Canon, Honda, Takeda Pharmaceutical, Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba, Sharp, Nippon Steel, Nippon Oil, and Seven & I Holdings Co.
           Japan is the leading nation in scientific research.particularly technology, machinery and  biomedical research.It has produced 15 Nobel laureates.   
          As of 2008 ,46.4 percent of energy n Japan is produced from petroleum, 21.4 percent from coal, 16.7 percent from natural gas, 9.7 percent from nuclear power, and 2.9 percent from hydro power. Nuclear power produces 22.5 percent of Japan's electricity.
          Some 250 high-speed  trains connect major cities. Japanese trains are known for their punctuality. There are 173 airports in Japan, the largest domestic airport, Haneda Airport, is Asia's second busiest Airport.
          Above is brief introduction about this great country 'Japan'...Small Volcano and earth quake are common in this country, but  This time country is hit by very massive earthquake of magnitude 9.0 in rector scale and followed by tsunami.Which created huge loss in the country.More than 10000 people are died,so many people are homeless,there is no power in the cities,no transport all roads are filled by water,four nuclear power plants are leaking radiations,these radiations are very harmful which creates uncured diseases in human.
Still this earth quake is continuing in the country, all countries in the world are joining their hands to help this small country.So friends let all of us also pray for quick recover of Japan.
