    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.

    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.
