Cool Picture

Overall I think that Japan is a very interesting country with a lot of people crowded in urban areas, something that surprised me was the dependency ratio, like I knew that Japan was declining in population but i didn’t know it was by that much.

Side note: n/a means that I could not find even if I looked on other sites.
