General Facts


Japan is archipelago made up of approx 6800 islands, there are four main islands, Honshu, Hokkaido, Shikoku and Kyushu which account for approx 97% of the Japan land mass. 75% of Japan is forested and mountainous so the majority of the population live mainly in coastal regions making Japan one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Despite this there are vast areas of Japan that are pristine and untouched over thousands of years. Japan is a country of contrasts from the traditional culture and ceremony to the modern technology, the cities and the sounds.


Population Facts

The total of Japanese population is 126.16million people and about 10% of the population is living in Tokyo. Estimate of the statistics are as of 2010.

  • Tokyo: 13.16 Million
  • Kanagawa: 9.05 Million
  • Kyoto: 2.65 Million
  • Osaka: 8.86 Million
  • Hakuba 8,912 (Estimate 2014) / 2.67 Million (Estimate Sep 2010) including visitors

Climate Facts

Japan has four distinct seasons. The coastal regions are temperate with more traditional seasons consisting of Spring (March, April, and May), Summer (June, July, August), Autumn (September, October, November) and Winter (December, January, and February). While the mountain areas like Hakuba are more cold and the winter stretches from November through to the end of March as the cold Siberian winds bring metres and metres of powder to the Japan Ski Resorts.


Electricity Facts

The voltage in Japan is 100 Volt, Australia is (240V), North America (120V), Central Europe (220V). Japanese electrical plugs have two pins, same as America (type A). The frequency of electric current is 50-60 Hertz in Japan, however this frequency difference affects only sensitive equipment. Most likely, chargers of portable electronics (cameras, mobile phones, iPods, MP3 players, etc.) come with an automatic voltage converter these days. Read the label on your device and if it says 100V to 240V, then all you need is the plug adapter for 2 pin system.
