The month of February I’m studying Japan, the land of the rising sun, mother of haiku.

Little info 

Tokyo is really a town of the world.

If we look back in time, we see a very different country.

Japan was a very closed country several centuries ago.

It was inhabited far back in time.

First signs of life in Japan are known from the Paleolithic is the earliest period of the Stone Age. 

The first written mention of Japan is in Chinese history texts from the 1st century AD.
