I’m currently in Japan on a G Adventures tour, and I’m loving every minute of it. Japan has far exceeded my expectations, though I’m definitely not eating enough sushi. In four days, I’ve only had it twice. For someone so addicted to sushi, that just feels so wrong. I’ll be rectifying that soon enough, though (tomorrow for lunch).
Japan is a country with a fascinating culture and history, so I thought I’d share some of the interesting facts I’ve learned about it:
1. Japan has the world’s third-largest economy, behind the US and China.
2. There are 127 million people living in the country.
3. The founding of Japan and the imperial line dates back to 660 BC. National Foundation Day is a national holiday and is celebrated on February 11th.
