7000 Japanese Islands Found


This is a bit funny: A recent survey by the Geospatial Information Authority of Japan found that Japan has 7,000 more islands than previously thought, bringing the total amount of islands in Japanese territory to 14,125.

However, the survey did not change the overall area of land in Japan’s possession, and it does not include any artificially reclaimed land. The survey also mentions several territorial disputes involving islands surrounding Japan.

When you think of the scale of the findings, it kind of blows your mind… I am mean 7000 islands seems like a lot 😃
