Tip: See my list of the Most Common Mistakes in English. It will teach you how to avoid mis­takes with com­mas, pre­pos­i­tions, ir­reg­u­lar verbs, and much more.

Japan and the Korean Peninsula have some of the most stunning natural landscapes in the world. It is difficult to capture their beauty in a map, but I hope the map below will give you some idea about the beauty of their forests and mountains.

The map shows the percentage of land covered by tree canopy (based on data by the U.S. Geological Survey from 2010) together with a shaded relief representing elevation (also based on data by the USGS). If you are interested in a particular area, see my “zoomed in” maps for the Korean peninsula, Kyushu and Shikoku, Honshu, and Hokkaido.
