This section covers Japanese nature words and vocabulary.
One of the reasons why so many people like to travel to Japan is that they are attracted by its beautiful scenery and nature.
Most of the areas in Japan are covered by mountains and forests, leaving only small areas that are suitable for residential buildings.
As a result the population in big cities like Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya keep growing while the rural areas become less populated.
Due to the fact that there are many volcanoes around, Japan has plenty of hot springs 温泉 (おんせん - onsen) located throughout the country. This is also one of the main attractions for tourists.
Let's find out more on the common Japanese nature words and vocabulary.
