The geography of a country is very important as it determines the development of its economy, society, culture, etc. Well, Japan owns a perfect location compared to other countries, regardless the occurrence of earthquakes due to its location on large tectonic plates. It’s considered one of the luckiest countries in which the size of it is 377,972 kilometers square, which has positive effects on the intercultural influences. Its size affects the population of people that is about 126 million, which is in the 11th place in the list of countries with the top population in the world which serves the economy a good in which it develops the economy and increases its economic growth. Japan is considered the nation of islands and it contains around thousands of islands. Japan is located in the Asia part of the world and is known for its vast amount of lands, forests, tropical areas, islands, and mountains, the climate of Japan is not stable and varies strongly in Japan’s different regions, for instance, lets take into consideration the climate of Tokyo; the capital of Japan.

China, Japan, Russia, & Korea Plan Renewable Energy Super Grid

Although Japan is located among three competitive countries with all owning the top economy rates worldwide; Russia, China, and Korea, many others might think that it serves the economy of Japan badly, but no versus Japan benefits from its neighboring countries and can even cooperate with them.  Well, that’s shocking because nowadays many neighboring countries are only focusing on being better than each other and keep competing, but Korea, China, Russia, and Japan decided to collaborate together to create the Asian Super Grid. It will transmit electrical power from renewable sources from areas of the world that are able to produce it to consumers in other parts of the world. The idea is dependent on the development of an ultra-high voltage grid operating at more than 1,000 kilovolts AC and 800 kilovolts DC over thousands of kilometers. It envisions interconnected grids across regions, nations, and even continents with a capacity of over 10 gigawatts. This serves Japan, Korea, Russia, and China a good.
