More about Japan

  • LOCALTIMEZONE: Latest statistics of population in the country of Japan, including languages spoken, urban population, birth rate, fertility rate and life expectancy for both men and women.


Japan is the third largest economic power in the world after the USA and China. The country quickly developed into a modern industrial state after the Second World War. This enabled the close interaction between politics, business and administration. In 1990/91, however, Japan’s economy fell into a crisis. Stocks and real estate lost up to two thirds of their value. After a temporary recovery phase, Japan slipped into a recession from 2009 in the wake of the global financial crisis, from which it was only able to free itself slowly. The national debt, however, remained very high. The most important trading partner is no longer the USA, but has been China since the beginning of the 21st century. Overall, around half of Japanese foreign trade takes place in Asia. Tokyo is the third most important international financial center after New York and London. Check 3rjewelry to see When Is the Best Time to Travel to Japan.

Japan’s industry is among the most competitive in the world. This applies in particular to the automotive industry (Toyota, Mazda, Mitsubishi) and electronics (Sony), as well as to the steel industry, shipbuilding and machine tool construction. The country has a top position in the field of industrial machines and robots.

Japan is poor in raw materials and relies heavily on imports for its energy supply. After the Fukushima disaster (2011), all nuclear power plants were temporarily shut down. Nevertheless, Japan continues to rely on nuclear energy for the future. Mainly due to the scarcity of land, agriculture, with rice as the main crop, and forestry play only a minor role. Almost all food and almost all wood must be imported. Japan is one of the largest fishing nations in the world. Along with rice, fish is the main ingredient in Japanese cuisine. Japan also hunts for critically endangered whales. So far this is officially only done for research purposes, but Japan plans to resume commercial whaling from 2019.


In early history, there were several small kingdoms in what is now Japan, which united to form the state of Yamato around AD 400. Under the influence of Sino-Korean culture, an absolute monarchy developed around 700 with the Tenno (emperor) at its head. The capital was initially today’s Nara, from 794 to 1868 today’s Kyoto. In the 9th century, the Tenno became increasingly dependent on the court nobility and was finally limited to ceremonial tasks.

In 1192 Minamoto no Yoritomo (* 1147, † 1199) was appointed military commander in chief, the so-called Shogun. Since then, the shoguns, who relied on the samurai as knightly feudal men, were the real rulers. Tokugawa Ieyasu (* 1543, † 1616)made the shogunate hereditary in his family in 1603. The seat of government was Edo, today’s Tokyo. The first Europeans to come to Japan were Portuguese in 1542. Since 1639 the country has kept itself closed against Western influences and especially against Christian proselytizing. It was not until the 19th century that Japan had to open itself to influences from America and Europe under military pressure. In 1867 the last shogun resigned. Government again fell to the Tenno. Thereupon Emperor Mutsuhito (* 1852, † 1912)extensive reforms that made Japan a modern constitutional state based on the European model. After the constitution promulgated in 1889, the constitutional monarchy came into being in Japan. In the first half of the 20th century, Japan was a major military power that could bring large parts of East Asia under its control. Japan concluded in 1940 the Tripartite Pact with Germany and Italy and entered 1941 with the attack on the US naval base at Pearl Harbor in World War II a. After the atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, it had to surrender unconditionally.

In 1947 the country received a democratic constitution that was heavily influenced by the United States. After the Second World War, Japan managed to rise to an Asian great power within a few decades, based on its economic efficiency. The conservative Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) became the politically dominant party with the exception of 1993-96 and 2009-12. Numerous corruption scandals have repeatedly led to resignations and changes at the top of the government.
