Why Japan is called land of rising sun
There are many reasons behind it. First and formost is that Japan is one of the very first country where sun rises first because its proximity to the international date line. The other reason why we call Japan as "land of the rising sun" because from China it appears that the sun rises from the direction of Japan.
