An awesome country in the far east. It has fantastic horror movies, anime, songs, singers, and food. The capital is Tokyo and currently (as of 2010) the Emperor and Empress are Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko. The Japanese are very healthy people, since their foods are so healthy such as sushi, rice, tea, and many people walk more than drive, which gives them more exercise. Japan has been around for a long time, and its Kanji is derived from Chinese characters. 花is a japanese character meaning "flower" but it is also a chinese character. In Japan, their language has three main writing systems: Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. Hiragana and Kanji are used for japanese words, and Katakana for foreign, or emphasized words. There is more than one kanji for many sounds, and there is more than one reading for most (or all) Kanji.
