Japan (Nippon/Nihon (sun) (root/origin), literally “the origin of the sun”) is a country in East Asia located between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Japan, east of the Korean peninsula. Its name, often translated as “The Land of the Rising Sun,” comes from China and refers to Japan’s eastward position relative to the Asian continent. Before Japan had relations with China, it was known as Yamato. Wa was a name early China used to refer to Japan, around the time of the Three Kingdoms Period.
Japan comprises a chain of islands, the largest of which are, from south to north, Kyushu, Shikoku, Honshu (the largest island), and Hokkaido.
The Japanese names for Japan are Nippon and Nihon. They are both written the same in Japanese. The Japanese name Nippon is used for most official purposes, including money, stamps, and international sporting events. Nihon is a more casual term used in Japan. For example, Japanese people call themselves Nihonjin and their language Nihongo: literally “Japan People” and Japan Language resepctively. The English word for Japan came to the west from early trade routes. The early Mandarin Chinese word for Japan was recorded by Marco Polo as Cipangu. However, the Cantonese word for Japan, form which the word Japan was probobly originally born, is Jatbun. In Malay the Cantonese word became Japang and was thus encountered by Portuguese traders in Moluccas in the 16th century. It is thought the Portuguese traders were the first to bring the word to Europe. It was first recorded in English in 1577 spelled Giapan.
