Around 128 m people speak Japanese; 124 m of whom are living in Japan and the islands off its coast, Okinawa; with the remaining 4 million living elsewhere. Japanese writing is made up of three separate alphabets, which are Kanhi, Hiragana and Katakana.
Japan is the world’s leading technology manufacturer and innovator, and so it’s no surprise that Nihongo (another word for Japanese) is considered one of the most useful languages in the world from a business perspective, as well as being used widely within scientific, entertainment and cultural contexts too. With more than 130 m current speakers of Japanese, in 2010 it became number 4 on the list of the internet’s most used languages.
