    Why Japan has invaded Korea and China? Because they always ignore international law for example boycott Japanese products, and terrorism. Japan has wanted them to be western style modern countries for trade.

    the reason why us dropped atomic bombs to Japan is because alies wanted to intimidate stalin incase he didn't give the country he took from hitler back to the people who own it previously or he wouldn't stopped at berlin and push toward west so little misinformation you got there you welcome

    Islands nation = Hard to invade, Lots of good ports, Full of sea resources, Lots of nice views, Open access to blue ocean anywhere
    Mountainous nation = Hard to invade, Lots of mountain resources, Lots of nice views, Lots of water resources, Lots of places for animals, Lots of earth if needed
    Volcanic nation = Lots of hot water resources (can be used for Onsen and renewable energy source)
    Earthquake&Tsunami = Forcing the construction technology development, Humble and Unite the people
    Typhoon = Hard to invade, Brings lots of water, Forcing the construction tech development, Humble and Unite the people
    Few plane land = Forcing the industrial development

    Wind, Wave, Solar, Ground heat energy can be produced in and around the island
    Lab meats will be available in less than 50 years so not much land needed for meats, animal skin, feathers, etc.
    Wheat, vegetable and fruits and mineral resources can be imported

    Sometimes, Japanese geography is beneficial and sometimes not
    But the most benefit Japan has is that it's HARD TO INVADE.

    Is it possible for the Japanese to invest in renewable energy? Are their natural disasters working against them attempting solar panels or wind turbines? Japan is one of the most most technologically advanced countries so I’m surprised they haven’t done that yet.

    That's a bold statement to say that Japan's never been conquered. Especially when one considers that by 1944 the advance of the US navy was inevitable.

    Said whatever you wanted geography never suck it is the politicians that suck and with the aggressiveness of old brainwashed Samurai rude and cruel attitude that transform the Japanese beautiful culture to be evil worriers and they are paying the price for what they have done to the others. The US is next, smart one must prepare for worse to come.
