Map of Japan - The map of Japan, or Nippon-koku (the State of Japan) depicts an archipelago of over 6800 islands located in the Pacific Ocean to the east of the Asian mainland. The four largest islands are Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku, and together they comprise over 97% of Japan's landmass. The capital city of Tokyo is located on the island of Honshu, and the greater Tokyo area is the largest metropolitan area in the world, with over 30 million residents. Japan is also a major economic power, with the world's third largest economy by GDP. The map of Japan depicts a land where over 70% of the area is covered in mountainous forest, and, as a result, the more habitable coastal regions are very densely populated. The map of Japan is situated in the Pacific Ring of Fire, and there are over 100 active volcanoes, as well as active subduction zones which can lead to largescale earthquakes and tsunami.
