"Marco Polo was the first to mention the Japanese territory of Eastern Asia around 1300 in his writings. Zipango (the medieval name for Japan in Europe) was in his mind a land covered with gold, silver and pearls. This and many other mysteries persisted until the first actual arrival of globetrotters from Europe. Japan was a distant beauty to explore.
Today, Japan likes to present itself to the public as a unit. However, the complexity of its culture can quickly be guessed if one considers the geographically extensive area (377,835 km²) on which the country stretches. Differences in religion, language and cuisine are therefore indispensable. The different climate zones that Japan encompasses also contribute to the country's diversity."
