SLJ - D2A1

  1. The name of the capital city of Japan is Tokyo
  2. The population of Tokyo is 8.94 millon people. (That's twice New Zealand's whole population living in Tokyo)
  3. In January, the weather in Tokyo is usually the coldest than any other month. It can be as cold as 5°C and that is pretty cold.
  4. Tokyo is located in the middle part of the country.
  5. The language most commonly spoken in Tokyo is Japanese.


  1. Hi Jacob,

    I really enjoyed reading through your blog post from today. I learned a lot about Japan by going through your list of facts and by looking at the map that you posted. It's a great image - I particularly like the way that they have used different colours to identify the various regions of the country.

    When I was a little bit younger I actually lived in the red region of Japan in a place called 'Nagano.' It was very beautiful. We had a huge mountain range just outside of the city center and we could go for bike rides and hikes through the hills when we weren't working. When we did go to work we would always bike (even in the middle of winter when it was snowing)!

    Have you ever had the chance to play or go biking in the snow? It's pretty fun (but pretty slippery)...

    I'm so happy to see that you had time to post a blog today, Jacob. Hopefully we'll see you online again really soon!!

    Rachel :)

  2. Hi Jacob!

    Another excellent post! You're right that Tokyo has lots more people than Auckland. Probably one of the most interesting and different things about Tokyo is that fact. There are so many people that unlike here where we usually just have shops and restaurants on the ground floor and very occasionally the second floor, in Tokyo restaurants and shops can go even higher. I remember going to a "Dunkin' Donuts" which was 3 stories tall! All for donuts and coffee!

    Keep up the great work!
