Caption: Japan. True-colour satellite image of the islands of Japan. North is at top. Vegetation is green and water is blue. The main island of Honshu (centre) lies below the island of Hokkaido (upper right). Parts of Russia and China (top left) are on the Asian mainland, beyond the Sea of Japan. The Japan Trench (dark line running from top right) under the Pacific Ocean, forms part of the boundary of the Pacific and Eurasian tectonic plates. Plate movement and other tectonic activity accounts for Japan's frequent earthquakes and active volcanoes.
