Want to know more about Japan

Japan is one of the most beautiful and interesting countries in the world. It has everything anyone could want in the way of shopping, travel, entertainment, and leisure activities. Tokyo and Osaka offer all the sights and sounds of the modern metropolis, while Hokkaido offers the hint of Alaska and Okinawa offers the tropics of Hawaii. Japan is an island nation of many islands. The main five, Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu, and Okinawa contain the 47 prefectures that are much like the states in America. TSD WESTPAC is located in Yokosuka City, in Kanagawa Prefecture, an hour south and west of Tokyo, on the island of Honshu.

Japan lies within the boundaries of 46 degrees north, 127 degrees east, giving it every range of temperatures and climates, from the heavy snow of winter to the year round summer of the tropics. The variation in climate throughout the year makes Japan the ideal location for every outdoor sport. Hiking, mountain climbing, skiing, skin diving, swimming, surfing, tennis, soccer, baseball, softball, and golf are all extremely popular in Japan.

The culture of Japan is as varied as the climate. The history of the country includes Emperors, Feudal Lords, invasions of neighboring Korea, China, and Russia, importation of Buddhism from China and Christianity from America. The countryside is rich with parks, hundreds of temples and shrines, old castles from feudal days, and amusement parks. The mountains and geothermal activity have given Japan a great number of natural hot springs that are a favorite pastime for everyone.

It is a wonderful place to visit and an even better place to live. Anyone who has the opportunity to come to Japan for duty will have an experience of a lifetime. There is no place in America that is anything like living in Japan. The people are incredibly kind and friendly, the country has a very low crime rate, and the food is some of the best in the world. If you ever get the chance to come, don't pass it up.
