  8. 8. Japan’s Geography• The nation of Japan is a long and narrow island chain situated in the North Pacific Ocean parallel to the easternmost edge of the Asian continent. Spanning a distance of 2,360 miles northeast to southwest (from 45 degrees 33 minutes latitude at its northernmost point to 20 degrees 25 minutes latitude at its southernmost point), the country lies in close proximity to portions of the Soviet Union, the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (North Korea), the Republic of Korea (South Korea), and the Peoples Republic of China.• The Japanese islands are separated from the Asian continent by the Sea of Okhotsk in the north and both the Sea of Japan and the East China Sea in the west. The Pacific Ocean lies off the southern and eastern coasts of Japan. The Korean Straits and the Straits of Tsushima separate Japan from the Asian continent by a distance of 124 miles. In the north, the Soviet Union lies just 186 miles off the coast of Hokkaido, and some smaller islands are disputed territory between the two countries.• Historically, these waters have served as a natural geographic barrier between the Japanese archipelago and Asia. Prior to the modern age, the distance across these waters kept foreign contact to a minimum and prevented any foreign forces from invading Japan. Mongol attempts in the late thirteenth century were turned back by kamikaze, divine winds. The American occupation after World War II was the only instance in the nations history of a formal occupation of the country.
