Japan is a country east of the Asian continent on the western edge of the Pacific Ocean. It is comprised of a chain of islands. The largest of the islands (known as the Home Islands) are, from north to south, Hokkaido , Honshu , Shikoku , and Kyushu. A number of smaller islands immediately surround these four, as well as one outlying group of small islands well to the south including Okinawa.
