Jigsaw puzzles from Japan

Summer - the great outdoors

Some aspects of Japan are so well known - the temples and gardens of Kyoto, the castles, the cherry blossom, Mt Fuji, and even the ugliness of urban sprawl. But one surely underrepresented feature is Japan's wild landscape. The visitor to Japan is often told how much smaller Japan is than foreign countries; this doesn't make much sense (given that the surface area of Japan is about 1.5 times that of the UK for example), until you realise that it must refer to the inhabitable area, outside which there is mountain scenery on a grand scale.
