This will be a presentation about Japanese
Japan is a archipelago located in East Asia, it
is found between the North Ocean and the
Pacific Ocean. To be more clear, Japan is
north-east from China, and east of Korea.
Japan is made up of many islands. The main
four are the Hokkaido,Honshu,Shikoku and
Kyushu, but there are around 3000 smaller
ones. Not all of them are habitet.
Its land is stratovolcanic.
To understand this presentation, you have to know what is geography. Well, geography is a study
of Earth, its land,features and inhabitants. Every country has got its own geography. There are
many types of geography, most of them connected with science. Geographical features are for
example mountains or rivers.
What are rivers?
Rivers are bodies of
water which flow into
a larger body of water
like oceans or seas.
Rivers may dry just
before falling into the
other body of water,
but some of them just
directly flow into the
ocean,sea. Rivers are
usually called names.
rivers are: Shinano
River, Tone River, and
How are rivers made?
• Many people might have given themselves this
• To find the answer to this question, we have to
think about it.
• When it is raining the water forms itself a path
through which it falls.
• When there is another rain, this water goes
through the bed which was formed earlier.
• Throughout time, the bed gets deeper, and it is
easier for the later rains to go through it.
Japanese River Pollution
River pollution is very
unhealthy for organisms
today. There are much
more dead fish, which
just cant stand
swimming in such
polluted water. Rivers
are polluted because of
the chemicals which
flow into them from the
This is a picture of a
pollution in the Go Dau
port in Japan.
What are mountains??
A mountain is a
landform which is streched
above the land, usually to
look like a peak. Mountains
are bigger, and steeper
In Japan the most
famous is Mount Fuji,
which is now visited by a
lot of people. Each of
Japanese mountains is
covered with breathtaking
natural features. The
highest mountains are
located in Honshu, a part

beautiful picture of Mount
How are mountains made?
• Underneath the ground, deep,deep down, we
can find tectonic plates.
• When the tectonic plates move it causes
• The continents which are located on the tectonic
plates, drift on the ocean, they hit with each
• After this collision the tectonic plates crash, and
crack and slide, until they find their own places,
which usually causes in forming a mountain.
What are volcanoes?
A volcanoe is a opening in
Earths land, which lets
gases, rocks and ash to
escape from beneath the
Usually, after some
period of time, a volcanoe
becomes extinct, which
means the gases etc.etc.
dont escpae through it,
and soon it becomes a
The „thing” the volcanoe
shoots out is called lava, or
magma. Magma is molten
rock found beneath the
On the right we can see
some mmost active
volcanoes in Japan.
Danger Of Volcanoes
• The simplest way to tell what are the danger
of volcanoes are:
• The lava, which gets out of the volcanoe, is
really, really hot, and it can burn people.
• This is not it.
• The ash,dust and gases, left after the eruption
can cause breathing problems and they
damage water and crops.
After watching this presentation, now, you
know what dangerous, and beautiful things
you might find it Japan. Also, you may say that
now you truly know how mountains or rivers
This is the end of my presentation anout
Japanese geography. I hope you enjoyed it.
