|This ultra-modern torii arch can be found at Saitama’s Kadokawa Musashino Museum, which was designed by the renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. The concept behind the torii is that it’s meant to be like a living being – it’s beginning to be covered in ivy (you can see the plants growing at the bottom), and the illumination colors change, too! 🌱⚡💜|

Part of the Ring of Fire, Japan spans an archipelago of 6852 islands covering 377,975 square kilometers (145,937 sq mi); the five main islands are Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu, and Okinawa.
Tokyo is Japan's metropolis and largest city; other major cities include Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Fukuoka, Kobe, and Kyoto.
Japan is the eleventh most crowded country in the world, as well as one of the most densely populated and urbanized.
About three-fourths of the country's terrain is mountainous, concentrating its population of 125.36 million on narrow coastal plains.
Japan has been inhabited since the Upper Paleolithic period (30,000 BC), though the first written mention of the archipelago appears in a Chinese chronicle finished in the 2nd century AD.
Between the 4th and 9th centuries, the kingdoms of Japan became unified under an emperor and the imperial court based in Heian-kyō.
Starting in the 12th century, political authority was held by a series of military dictators (shōgun) and feudal lords (daimyō), and enforced by a class of warrior nobility (samurai).
After a century-long period of civil war, the country was reunified in 1603 under the Tokugawa shogunate, which enacted an isolationist foreign policy.
In 1854, a United States fleet pushed Japan to open trade to the West, which led to the end of the shogunate and the restoration of imperial power in 1868. In the Meiji period, the Empire of Japan adopted a Western-modeled constitution and pursued a program of industrialization and modernization.
In 1937, Japan invaded China; in 1941, it entered World War II as an Axis power.
After suffering defeat in the Pacific War and two atomic bombings, Japan surrendered in 1945 and came under a seven-year Allied occupation, during which it adopted a new constitution.
Under the 1947 law, Japan has maintained a unitary parliamentary constitutional monarchy with a bicameral legislature, the National Diet.
Japan is a magnificent power and a member of numerous international organizations, including the United Nations (since 1956), the OECD, and the Group of Seven.
Although it has renounced its right to declare war, the country maintains Self-Defense Forces that rank as one of the world's strongest militaries.
After World War II, Japan experienced record growth in an economic miracle, becoming the second-largest economy in the world by 1990.
As of 2021, the country's economy is the third-largest by nominal GDP and the fourth-largest by PPP. Japan has made significant contributions to science and technology, a global leader in automotive and electronics manufacturers.
Rated "very powerful" on the Human Development Index, Japan has the world's highest life expectancy, though it is experiencing a population decline.
The culture of Japan is well known around the world, including its art, cuisine, music, and popular culture, which encompasses prominent comic, animation, and video game manufacturers.
