I'm not surprised not one single person got the exact number of islands for Japan. I'm a Japanese citizen, and even I don't know that!
May 2nd, 2010 at 12:36 GMT
Interesting as it is. The 'Leading cause of Death' question seems a tad out of place
May 2nd, 2010 at 14:49 GMT
please accept 'japan sea'
May 2nd, 2010 at 23:15 GMT
I think the total number of the islands includes uninhabited pieces of rock too. Just one answer that I couldn't guess. Even Japanese don't know this, how am I supposed to know.

Naoto Kan is now the prime minister...

'Kana' for katakana?
May 9th, 2011 at 12:05 GMT
'Kana' is both Katakana and Hiragana (the two together are called the Kana). As such, Kana is not a script, it is a collection of scripts. So the quiz is right.

And why does no one ever remember Shikoku (myself included)? Poor island, must feel neglected lol.
May 16th, 2011 at 00:06 GMT
Could be a little easier on the eyes. Aside from that, excellent quiz!

heisei must count for the emperor's name

New PM is Kan. You should also accept "Shinto".
Sep 10th, 2011 at 01:22 GMT
Please update the new PM.
Nov 7th, 2011 at 16:00 GMT
20/29. Not bad considering I only started liking Japan because of anime xD Anyway it wouldn't have mattered if I'd known the PM cos it's wrong =/
Nov 17th, 2011 at 12:35 GMT
Is it possible to change the PM to Noda? I tried both Noda and Kan, but I didn't go back far enough, I guess. And is the official name for the religion Shintoism, and not Shinto? Ah well, I still didn't do too badly :)
Jun 5th, 2012 at 18:40 GMT
I second the request to accept "Shinto."
Jun 23rd, 2012 at 17:16 GMT
I realize people have already said this but I opened the comment section for one reason and one reason only and that is to say this: You should definitely accept just "Shinto" for "Shintoism." Otherwise, nice quiz.
Aug 14th, 2012 at 17:57 GMT
At the rate the Japanese prime ministers have been changing, perhaps that should be left out. The current prime minister is Noda Yoshihiko. Hatoyama is 2 PMs ago.
Jan 25th, 2013 at 10:14 GMT
You need to update this again since the current PM is Shinzo Abe
Mar 19th, 2013 at 16:18 GMT
I loved the quiz.... and I'm not even Japanese!
