Japan, an island nation in eastern Asia, is known as the "Land of the Rising Sun." It consists of more than 3,000 islands, most of which are mountainous and volcanic. Its capital is its largest city, Tokyo. It is unique in that its constitution, ratified in May of 1947, forbids the country from having an army or navy except for self-defense.
