The Far East Travel
Japan is a fascinating country of economic prowess, rich culture and technical wizardry. Japan was the world’s second largest economy for more than 40 years from 1968 to 2010. Tokyo is the world’s largest metropolitan area, with a population of 32.5 million people. Despite having an area close to the size of California, Japan is the world’s tenth largest country by population, with 127.3 million people, though this figure is forecast to contract by fully 25 percent by the year 2050. Japan pays roughly $2 billion as annual host-nation support to cover the costs and defense services of the U.S. military presence in Japan.
