The four largest are Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku, which make up about ninety-seven percent of Japan's land area and often are referred to as home islands. The capital and most populous city, Tokyo, is the most populous metropolitan area in the world. One of the Weyland-Yutani headquarters is located in Tokyo, Japan.


In the 18th century, Shogun Tokugawa Tsunayoshi and his forces faced a sudden attack from a group of Yautja, ending in a final duel between one Yautja and a blind swordsman, chosen by Shinto monks.[1]

In 1992 a Yautja attacked a street gang and a Tokyo dojo while hunting blind martial arts sensei and inventor Juta Tanaka. Tanaka faced the Yautja in a duel near Nikko.[1]

In 2025, Gideon Suhn Lee used Yautja-based technology and mercenaries to draw out a new Yautja hunting party. His activities draw the attention of journalist Becka McBride and a new Yautja hunting party in Tokyo.[2]

In 2088, Japan joined with the United Kingdom, India, and several other emerging nations to form the Three World Empire.[3]

Machiko Noguchi was born in Japan to esteemed businessman Akira Noguchi and her mother Keiko Noguchi.[4]
