of Japan, China, North Korea, South Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of
Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the south. The characters that make
up Japan’s name mean “sunorigin”, which is why Japan is sometimes referred to as the “Land of the Rising Sun”. Japan is an archipelago of 6,852 islands. The four largest islands are Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Shikoku, which together comprise about ninety-seven percent of Japan’s land area. Japan has the world’s tenth-largest population, with over 126 million people.

Notable sites in Aichi include the Meiji Mura open-air architectural museum in Inuyama, which preserves historic buildings from Japan’s Meiji and Taishō periods, including the
reconstructed lobby of Frank Lloyd Wright’s old Imperial Hotel (which originally stood in Tokyo from 1923 to 1967). Other sites in Aichi include the tour of the Toyota car factory in the city by the same name, the monkey park in Inuyama, and the castles in Nagoya, Okazaki, Toyohashi, and Inuyama. Because of Aichi’s location along the Eastern seacoast, there are some scenic spots, but other than the Atsumi Peninsula surf beaches there are no significant beach destinations when compared to neighboring Shizuoka Prefecture. Most attractions are man-made destinations, dealing with the region’s history.
