Japanese cities: is it worth visiting the Land of the Rising Sun?

In most Slavs, it is generally accepted that the culture of Japan is "land, hieroglyphics and kimono." A narrow view of one of the most developed countries in the world is due to the low level of popularization. However, conservative Japanese prefer not to advertise their way of life, observing the culture and policy of non-interference in the processes occurring in other countries, and the almost complete absence of cultural and linguistic borrowings.

Nothing will please a newcomer like a Japanese city: their diversity is amazing! Various prefectures are built on the basis of history and the role in the culture of a particular region. There are no spontaneous constructions based on realtor seizures and general redemption of the territory. Everything follows the rules: from the building construction scheme to the color marking of pedestrian crossings.

On the one hand, the period of isolation affects, and on the other - active interaction with world politics. The era of Gandai is the next stage for Japan, which was lucky to get to our Asian contemporaries. Large Japanese cities are open to tourists, like provincial areas. In connection with the increase in the flow of tourists wishing to become citizens of the country, Japan as far as possible moves away from the emigrants. Competently and laconically painted residence status predisposes to emigrate to the country rich and high-ranking citizens of other countries.

Are Japanese cities waiting for Russia?

Japanese settlements are subject to strict regulations. Some cities are given the status of "special". Their number exceeds 200 000 people. There are also central cities (main) with a population of over 300,000 and cities with a special administrative and legal status with a population of more than half a million people.

Contrary to public opinion, with the reproduction of the population of most cities, everything is in order. The number in some of them is just off scale. In comparison with Russia, even items with the status of "special" can boast of a population density higher than in the capital of our Motherland. For example, the city of Kawaguchi ("special") has a population density of 9,200 people per square kilometer. For comparison: in Moscow this figure is about 4820 people.

If we compare the population density in the two capitals, then in Tokyo it is 5750 people, and in Moscow - 4822 people. (Per square kilometer). It is quite expected that such cities are very delicately, in the form of a law, they tell us that they have "come in large numbers" quite a lot. Japan on the map of the world in a densely populated state ranks 25th, while Russia - 181th.

But it should be borne in mind that the life expectancy of the Japanese is quite high, which means that there are many retirees in the country. A pensioner in Japan is, it turns out, very profitable, but this is a topic of another conversation. In large metropolitan areas, labor is always needed, which means there is a prospect of emigration and work in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Why live in Hiroshima, but in Chernobyl - no

The population in other cities and provinces, not in the central regions, is quite close in density to the population of the provinces in Russia. The fact is that the able-bodied young population, like ours, moves to cities with more developed infrastructure. In connection with historical events, the Japanese city of Hiroshima, which suffered from a nuclear attack, is also not densely populated, although up to the explosion it grew by leaps and bounds. However, unlike the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, there was no severe contamination with radioactive isotopes, and the city remained quite fit for living a few days after the tragic events.

However, another factor that has sparked a lot of controversy at the time on the ban on nuclear power in the country is the well-known technogenic catastrophe in Fukushima. Facts about the consequences and peculiarities of the effect of radiation isotopes are still hidden by the special services of the prefecture.

"Tourists are forgiven for everything". Features of the country and its inhabitants

Despite the complex history, the inhabitants of this remarkable country are distinguished by a high level of civilizedness and courtesy. A polite smile you will meet in the hotel, and even in a taxi. Of course, such upbringing is just a necessary factor for the survival of a large group of people concentrated in one place. However, not used to smiling Russian tourists will certainly be nice. Another pleasant fact is the knowledge of English by the majority of inhabitants. The name of Japanese cities, hotels and restaurants can be read in English transcription. Another amazing fact is the presence of restaurants of Russian cuisine, where you can always spill a couple of words, like "oishi-pies", and listen to how the Japanese say "grandmother". An unforgettable sight! Japanese cities with a developed restaurant industry (Tokyo - among the first) often boast the presence of such restaurants.

How do the Japanese work and in what cities do they live?

The Japanese are people with very high self-esteem. Working, they have an idea of what role they play in society. In Tokyo, rich billionaires and ordinary office workers can easily coexist: all thanks to the same courtesy and very competent buffering between different classes of society.

The main significant cities of Japan with the most developed infrastructure, the "trinity of dragons nippon":

  • Tokyo is the capital of Japan. Center for international and intercity relations of the country. It is the most popular among tourists and businessmen, the number of the city exceeds 12.5 million people.
  • Yokohama is the "small" capital of Japan, ranking second in densely populated areas. Absence in the city of the airport is compensated by an excellent transport infrastructure. Of the attractions, tourists celebrate one of the largest amusement parks as well as Chinatown.
  • Kyoto - a kind of "capital of the Middle Ages", which it from the VII to XIV century, preserved and transmits the spirit of feudal Japan of antiquity. The center of Zen Buddhist culture.

Important cities in the history and industry of the country are:

  • The city of Toyota, known to us by the brand of high-class cars.
  • Fukushima - one of the centers of nuclear energy, known for the technogenic catastrophe that occurred due to the strongest in the history of the earthquake.
  • Shizuoka, Nagano - the brainchild of zaibatsu, the centers of motor industry.

Japan is an island country washed from all coasts by the Pacific Ocean, known for its diversity and richness of seafood. An untrained person can call the Japanese gastronomic monsters: their kitchen knows no boundaries, which is only the preparation of a deadly poisonous fugu fish .

Legends and myths

In Japan, there are no elements of demonstrability and demonstrations of the richer and privileged class of their advantages to the unprivileged. As, in principle, there are no holders of hundreds of billions: the country does not "eat" petrodollars, and citizens are well aware that with the next crisis they will not be helped by dumping to natural resources. Japanese cities are maintained in perfect purity, and the bank from the cola that has thrown to the sidewalk will have to be accountable to the district administration. For cans and other debris there are urns where the garbage is packed. Paper, tin cans and glass are recycled.

Japan is an advanced country

Summarizing the above, we can safely say that the trip to Japan is an unforgettable event. This amazing country will always remain in the hearts of those who visited it.

We, Russians, accustomed to luxury in the form of a large stock of oil, gas and coal, can see firsthand how a country with limited natural resources effectively uses another, human. Japan on the world map does not take the most advantageous position: tsunamis and earthquakes here in the order of things. But these people nowhere see obstacles and always go ahead! So we Russians have something to see and learn from this country and these wonderful people.
