Report Writing

Japan

Did you know that Japan has at least 6,852 islands overall? In this information report I am going to be stating some facts about the historic events, architectural styles, natural disasters, and sports in Japan.
 Architecture
Japan has interesting ways to build different buildings. Many structure’s from back in the day were made from wood and to make huts and villages. Back before we were born Japanese people use to make castles to protect their king or leader and protect themselves from enemies. Also during the Edo era the samurai were meant to protect and surround the castles and villages of their own.
Historic Events
On August 6th, 1945 Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing took place in Japan. Another name for Hiroshima is Little Boy. It was a gun type bomb with about thirteen kilotons of force and explosion power. Hiroshima was home to about 280,000 - 290,000 people and about 43,000 soldiers at the time. But sadly at the time between 90,00 and 166,000 people were declared dead in the time of 4 months. Three days after America dropped the Hiroshima bomb. America bombed Nagasaki on August 9th. The bomb was a device also known as Fat Man. On the day of the bombing 263,000 people were in the Nagasaki bombing. Also between 40,000 - 75,000 people were killed. During the Nagasaki bombing another 60,000 people suffered severe injuries. The total of deaths in Nagasaki would be about 80,000.
Natural Disasters
Japan is one that have several natural disasters. In 1995 it was reported that The Sakurajima Volcano to have erupted 200 times. The Sakurajima Volcano erupted around late October and Early November. The Hanshin Earthquake took place in Japan on January 17th Tuesday 1995. The earthquake lasted 20 seconds and destroyed 150,000 buildings. The magnitude of the quake was 6.8.

One of the sports that Japanese people play is Sumo wrestling. Sumo wrestling has been around in Japan for 1,500 years. Sumo wrestling tournaments take place in Tokyo, Nagoya and Fukuok. Sumo wrestling is a traditional sport too. Another sport that Japan participate in is Karate. It is one of the most famous martial arts styles. Karate first started in India.Chinese trainers brought the fighting styles and skills to Japan back around in the fourteenth century. Karate was never properly introduced to Japan until the twentieth century. But after WWII they changed the name and the characters so that it was translated to be called empty handed.
