    Environmental Implications of Japan's Geology 01, High population density, Ginza, Tokyo.

    High population density, Ginza, Tokyo. -- With a total area of about 143,000 square miles, Japan is a bit smaller than California. Much of the land is too mountainous for cities and towns so the population is concentrated on those areas flat enough to build upon. About 70 percent of Japanese live in cities, and in places like Tokyo the population density may reach 20,000 or more people per square mile. -- Because of its location at the boundary of converging earth plates, Japan is geologically active with frequent earthquakes and volcanic activity. When these natural processes adversely affect people they are considered geological hazards. With a large population concentrated in a small areas, Japan is susceptible to serious geological disasters.

    Landscapes of Japan, 13, Bayhead bar beach and coastal village of Hiraiga.

    Bayhead bar beach and coastal village of Hiraiga. -- Along this mountainous coastline, flat land is scarce. The homes and buildings of the small village of Hiraiga are crammed into nearly every piece of reasonably flat land above the high tide line. In much of Japan, rugged mountains separate the small areas of flat land upon which villages could be built causing the villages to be isolated from one another. The scarcity of flat land also leads to concentration of the Japanese population into those areas flat enough to build upon.

    Landscapes of Japan, 14, Flat land used for cities, Tokyo viewed from the top of Tokyo Tower.

    Flat land used for cities, Tokyo viewed from the top of Tokyo Tower. -- Flat land is scarce and very valuable in Japan. It is the most productive agricultural land, and also the easiest land upon which to build. Consequently. there is great competition and tension between development and agricultural interests. As the population increases and more people move from rural to urban areas, Japanese cities continue to expand and an increasing proportion of flat land is lost to agricultural and other uses.
