The main place where the population lives is in Tokyo-Yokohama. 35 million residents are currently living in Tokyo. Tokyo is also the capitol of the country. Another big city in Japan is Sakura. About 10 million live here. This doesn’t include the travelers coming in and out. Most widely spoken language spoken in Japan is Japanese. More than half of the country is speaking Japanese.
