  • Thumbnail for Landscapes of Japan, 01, Typical mountainous terrain west of the city of Morioka in northern Honshu.
    Landscapes of Japan, 01, Typical mountainous terrain west of the city of Morioka in northern Honshu.

    Typical mountainous terrain west of the city of Morioka in northern Honshu. -- Japan's location, along a boundary where earth crustal plates are converging, is largely responsible for the Japanese landscape. This convergence both pushes up the land surface producing mountains (at the same time causing earthquakes) and generates the volcanic activity characteristic of much of Japan. The result is that most of Japan consists of hills and mountains. The interplay between rapid uplift and rapid erosion by fast moving streams produces a landscape of steep slopes and narrow ridges and valleys. -- This is a typical mountainous landscape. Note the absence of any significant flat floodplain in the valley bottom.

    Environmental Implications of Japan's Geology 15, Importance of natural environment, Mrs. Sato's garden.

    Importance of natural environment, Mrs. Sato's garden. -- Geological processes and hazards are an inescapable part of life in Japan. It is not surprising, therefore, that the natural environment has deeply affected the Japanese, and is an important component of religion, literature, and art. Here natural materials are used to create a small garden which celebrates the beauty of Japan's natural environment.

    Landscapes of Japan, 09, Alluvial flatlands, floodplain of Kitakami River, Hiraizumi.

    Alluvial flatlands, floodplain of Kitakami River, Hiraizumi. -- Flat land is scarce in Japan and is mostly the result of stream action, though shoreline processes have produced some flat areas along the coast. Here, as its gradient, velocity and consequently its ability to transport sediment decreased, the Kitakami River has deposited sediment eroded from nearby mountain ranges. Most alluvial floodplains like this in Japan are small and linear in shape. Higher flat terraces paralleling the stream may be present if old floodplain surfaces have been uplifted and dissected by a rejuvenated and newly downcutting stream. -- Flat land is important in Japan because it is both the best agricultural land and the best site for cities and towns.

    Landscapes of Japan, 05, Mountainous Kitakami Highlands, mostly Paleozoic sedimentary rocks, at Tanohata.

    Mountainous Kitakami Highlands, mostly Paleozoic sedimentary rocks, at Tanohata. -- The Kitakami Highlands are typical of many of the mountains of Japan. The landscape is mostly slopes with narrow ridge tops and only a few small flat valley bottoms. One is visible in the right side of this scene. These mountains are not volcanic but rather consist of sedimentary rocks deposited in horizontal layers which were later deformed by crustal movements related to plate convergence.

    Landscapes of Japan, 10, Rice fields, Kanto Plain (Japan's largest), near Narita Airport.

    Rice fields, Kanto Plain (Japan's largest), near Narita Airport. -- The Kanto Plain is the largest of Japan's coastal lowland plains with an area of about 8,000 square miles (this is about equal to a square 70 miles on a side). The slide shows the multiple uses of flat land in Japan. Rice fields, gardens, roads, villages and towns and an international airport all compete for part of this lowland area.
