Ich danke euch schon mal im Vorraus!! Japan Good morning, today I will talk about Japan. My presentation is made up in two parts. First I want to tell you a few things about the country, the flag, the government and so on. And after this I want to tell you something about Tokyo. Japan is the fourth biggest island country in the world. It lies in the Western Pacific, on the coast of China. There are 4 main Islands. But in Addition, there are about 4000 little islands. The mountains take about 80% of the area of the country. There are more than 60 active and 500 extinct volcanos. The biggest mountain is Mount Fuji, we called it Fujiyama and the Japanese Fujisan. He is one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. . the official language is Japanese. There live above onehundred million people, also 337 inhabitants per square kilometer, which is more than in Germany. Japan is a monarchy state and the only empire of the world. In the right-hand corner you can see the Emperor Akihito, his wife and under them is the hole family. And this is the emperor palace. In the left-hand corner you can see the national flag. it is a base white flag with a large red disc, but for them it’s the rising sun. This sounds wonderful but it has one negative point: it is their flag of war! Next I would like to play you the national anthem Kimi ga yo, which is a poem from the 12 century, and so the oldest of the world. The next important thing is the money. They pay with Yen. I have some notes to show you. The 1000 note. This is between 6 and 7 euro. The 2000 note, this is around 13 euro. The 5000 and the 10000 note. Then I would like to go on with the next part Tokyo. Tokyo is the capital of Japan and the biggest city in the world. You can see it here, in the middle of the country. Ten percent of the Japanese people live in Tokyo and as many as twenty percent of the population live around it. So the city continues to increase, which is a problem. Tokyo is the center of business, trade, and industry of Japan and also of Asia. Tokyo is well known for its roads, which are always filled with traffic. And it‘s difficult to drive in this city, when you never was there. Because there are sometimes eight lanes, and the traffic is on different plains. Beetween the tower blocks, they drive always stop and go. 4.5 million cars drive in this city, and it will be more and more. Although it is expenisve to drive a car. So for the most people its difficult to get to their work. Not only the streets are packed, the underground too. For women it is not easy but in some undergrounds are waggons only for them. I´m sorry, but I havn´t found a picture, which show you this problem. But it gives a nice side of the capital, too. Tokyo may not be known as a city with much greenery, but it has several nice parks and gardens. And its really fantastic to go through this city as an European person. Because they have an other lifestyle. (kann mir jemand den nächsten deutschen satz übersetzen? Ich bin momentan wohl etwas überarbeitet, schaffs einfach nicht :kopfschue )Darüber gibt es soviel zu erzählen, was ich leider nicht in ein 5min referat packen konnte. Aber ich hoffe, dass ich euch einen kleinen eindruck darüber verschaffen konnte. ich würde noch gerne etwas kleines zum essen mitbringen. Ich muss es um 7:50 halten, deshalb ist es schwierig etwas zu finden, weil sie eben nachspeisen und kaltes frühstück so nicht unbedingt haben. Hat da jemand noch ne Idee? Was vllt auch nicht soo schwierig ist und nicht zuviel fremde zutaten beinhalten.
