  • Japan
    • Contrasting population density
    • Contrasting climates
    • Low population in mountainous areas (2/3 of country)
      • Not enough flat land to grow food or build on
      • Soils thin and infertile
      • Poor communications- very isolated
      • Few job opportunities
      • Few natural resources
      • Extreme climates
    • High population density in many rural areas
      • Fertile soils
      • Flat land for building and growing foods on
      • Good communications
    • Why do other 2/3 of Japan live in the urban areas? (Tokyo has a population density of 3000/km)
      • Flat land for building, roads, railways, and airports
      • On the coast
        • Good for trade imports and exports, communications, and a fishing industry
