Ordered to proceed to Tokyo Bay on 24 August, the ship was proceeding south when she picked up a Japanese Sen Toku class I-401 submarine, which was at the time the largest submarine in the world, by radar on 29 August. The enemy boat was ordered to halt by international signal. This was done; and, after several trips between the two submarines by their respective representatives, the Japanese agreed to accept a prize crew aboard and to proceed to Tokyo with ''Segundo''. The two ships entered Sagami Wan on 31 August and, at 05:00, the American flag was raised aboard the ''I-401'' (Japanese submarine I-401). zh:日本 Commons:Category:Japan Wikipedia:Japan Dmoz:Regional Asia Japan

The proposal appeared first in a web posting on his academic site. "Japan's Trap", May 2008.

in Shinto music such as ''kagura-den (Kagura)'' and in traditional Japanese folk songs. There are two styles: ''uta'' (song) and ''hayashi'' (festival). The uta is properly tuned to the Western scale (Musical scale), and can be played in ensembles or as a solo (solo (music)) instrument (Musical instrument). The hayashi is not in the correct pitch (Pitch (music)), because it is simply a piece of hollow bamboo with holes cut into it. It emits a very high-pitched sound, and is appropriate for the festival folk music of Japan. Both shinobue flutes play a very important role in the Japanese theater. left thumb Male, ''Hypolimnas bolina nerina'', Cairns (File:Common Eggfly 1, Cairns.jpg), Queensland, Australia ''H. bolina'' is found in Madagascar in the west, through to South (South Asia) and Southeast Asia, South Pacific islands (French Polynesia, Tonga, Samoa, Vanuatu), and occurs in parts of Australia, Japan, and New Zealand. zh:日本 Commons:Category:Japan Wikipedia:Japan Dmoz:Regional Asia Japan

by bikers to secure their wallets while riding a motorcycle, smaller chained wallets became popular in 1970s-80s Punk fashion and in the early 1990s with the grunge fashion movement as well as Heavy metal fashion. Long wallets are popular with men in cash-based countries like Japan and often reflect Native American (Indigenous peoples of the Americas) aesthetic influence. * ''Wallet band'' a type of wallet that uses a continuous elastic band, made of fabric or rubber, to secure cards and or cash. Wallet bands have become increasingly more popular as a way to reduce the bulk of a traditional wallet. Motorola C-QUAM C-QUAM was developed and promoted primarily by Motorola, a long time manufacturer of two-way radio equipment. It became the dominant system by the late 1980s, and was declared the official standard by the FCC in 1993. While many stations in the USA have since discontinued broadcasting in stereo, many still have the necessary equipment to do so. C-QUAM is still popular in other parts of the world, such as Canada, Japan, and Australia which it was declared the official standard. * Japan: Between 1992 and 1996, 16 commercial broadcasting companies in Japan adopted C-QUAM because of the narrow Japanese FM band; it covers only 14 MHz (76-90 MHz), as opposed to the 20.5 MHz used in the rest of the world (87.5-108 MHz). However, it is now quite rare to see AM radios with stereo the function at appliance stores in Japan because of the decline in AM stereo stations and the limited available area, mainly in densely populated areas. 11 of the 16 stereo stations have since reverted to mono, 9 since the start of 2010 (:ja:AMステレオ放送), leaving only 5 stations broadcasting in stereo. * Australia: AM stereo was popular in Australia because AM covers a wide geographic area compared to FM, in addition to the government's adoption of a single standard (Motorola C-QUAM) several years sooner than the USA, and Australia's relatively late adoption of FM (the frequencies in the FM band were originally allocated for TV). As of June 2008 no Melbourne AM stations broadcast C-QUAM AM stereo.

Japan

'''Japan''' or '''''Nihon-koku''''', literally " the State of Japan") is an island nation (island country) in East Asia. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it lies to the east of the Sea of Japan, China, North Korea, South Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the south. The characters (Kanji) that make up Japan's name (Names of Japan) mean "sun-origin", which is why Japan is often referred to as the "Land of the Rising Sun".

Japan is a stratovolcanic (Stratovolcano) archipelago of 6,852 islands (List of islands of Japan). The four largest islands are Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Shikoku, which together comprise about ninety-seven percent of Japan's land area. Japan has the world's tenth-largest population (List of countries by population), with over 126 million people. Honshū's Greater Tokyo Area, which includes the ''de facto'' capital (Capital of Japan) of Tokyo and several surrounding prefectures (Prefectures of Japan), is the largest metropolitan area (World's largest cities) in the world, with over 30 million residents.

Archaeological research indicates that people lived in Japan as early as the Upper Paleolithic period. The first written mention of Japan is in Chinese history (History of China) texts from the 1st century AD. Influence from other regions, mainly China, followed by periods of isolation, later from Western European influence, has characterized Japan's history (History of Japan). From the 12th century until 1868, Japan was ruled by successive feudal military shoguns in the name of the Emperor. Japan entered into a long period of isolation in the early 17th century, which was only ended in 1853 when a United States fleet pressured Japan to open to the West. Nearly two decades of internal conflict and insurrection followed before the Meiji Emperor (Emperor Meiji) was restored as head of state in 1868 and the Empire of Japan was proclaimed, with the Emperor as a divine symbol of the nation. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, victories in the First Sino-Japanese War, the Russo-Japanese War and World War I allowed Japan to expand its empire during a period of increasing militarism. The Second Sino-Japanese War of 1937 expanded into part of World War II in 1941, which came to an end in 1945 following the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Since adopting its revised constitution (Constitution of Japan) in 1947, Japan has maintained a unitary constitutional monarchy with an emperor (Emperor of Japan) and an elected legislature called the Diet (Diet of Japan).
