Most of Japan's ilands are fellish, and many are firefellish, among which is the highest peak, Bergh Fuji. The earth there is given to firefellish outflows, earthquakes, and tidewaves. Woodland is spread over some seven tenths of its ground, with most steads ill-fit for farming. Notwithstanding this rugged landscape, it is one of the most thickly folkfilled kiths in the world: its headtown, Tōkyō, is the greatest town ground in the world with over thirty thousand-thousand towndwellers. The land has a wet loftlay with four seasons; rain falls heavily in the sixth month / Forelithe throughout the ilands. Northwest Japan has some of the world's heaviest snowfalls in the winter for cold winds blowing over Siberia picks up wetness over the Japan Sea and drops it at the fells beyond the shore.
Japan is a samefolkish rike, with most folk being Japanish, with a few mostly Chinish and Korean outlanders. The far north is home to the firstlander Ainu folk, although few fullblooded Ainu are left, and few speak the Ainu tung any longer. Japanish is the rikish tung. Although not akin to Chinish, Japanish is written with tokens outsprung from China. The two foremost worshipways are the homeborn Shintō, and Buddhatroth, brought over from China awhile the 5th hundredyear. Japan has the longest-lived folk in the world.
It is a witanish kingdom with a kinghead and a chosen lawmoot, one of the oldest lawmoots in Asia. This lawmoot has nearly always been held by the Freebeing-Folkmightish Mootband. The kingdom is cloven among forty-seven greatshires with their own underrikes.
Japan has the third-greatest landgeld in the world by buying might (second greatest on namewordly ground) and one of the world's leading workly kiths. It is the world's fourth greatest outsender and fifth greatest inbringer of goods.
Among the outstanding crafts of the Japan are:
- Bunraku (a kind of play with dolls)
- Eastern handwritingcraft
- Haiku (a kind of leeth)
- Kabuki (a kind of play)
- Noh (a kind of play)
- The Teaway
In the days before writing the ilands were dwelt in by the Jōmon and Yayoi folk. The Jōmon may have been the forefathers of the Ainu folk, who now live only in the northernmost reaches of Japan. Slowly the folk grew together into a kith led by overlords who were said to be erves of the sun goddess. Beginning in the 500s after Christ, Japan took up many Chinish thews, including their ways of writing and worship. Buddhatroth grew mighty, and with the thought of escaping its might the overlords shifted the headtown from Nara to Heiankyō ("Frithtown," nowadays Kyōto). In spite of this the overlords became mere kingheads, losing their true rikemight to warlords, though they never lost their throne. Japan thus became a feudal kith led by clans of knights known as samurai (Japanish, "servant"). By the 16th hundredyear, Japan was beset by nearly unbroken borough-hild. It was made one again at last in the year 1600 by Ieyasu Tokugawa, who became the seii taishōgun or simply shōgun (Japanish, "Great Wildman-Taming Herethane") and shifted the headtown to Edo (now Tokyo). The leadership of the Tokugawa clan was marked by 268 years of frith, one of the longest spans in the eretide of the world, and also aloofness from the outside world. The overwhelming thoughttroth of this time was Kong Fuzi-troth, which was the root of the law. This herethaneship ended in 1854 once the Banded Folkdoms of Americksland sent ships to Yokohama bidding Japan to open its doors to trade. After the Meiji Rightputting of 1868, Japan took up many Europish and Americkish thews and quickly became a worldmight. In the 20th hundredyear its kith was more and more overtaken by the leadership of herethanes, who took over wide swaths of East Asia. Awhile World War Two, Japan was sworn with Dutchland. It was thereafter held by the Banded Folkdoms of Americksland, and by law forswore its own right to make war, keeping only a small selfwarding warband. In frith Japan has become a leader in craftlore.
