Japan is the third largest economy in the world with over 120 million people residing in this small island country. Major cities are Osaka, Kyoto, Nagoya, and of course, Tokyo. Tokyo, the capital of Japan, with a population density of about 6000 persons per square kilometer has the largest population among the 47 prefectures. Being the main business district in Japan, million of workers commute into Tokyo for work from outlying areas causing the city to become even more densely populated during the daytime.
Japan, known for its advanced technology and infrastructure, holds a lot of opportunities for business growth and individual career growth. Home to the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics, there is no doubt that this international event will draw more interest and attention to the Japanese economy in the coming years.
