An island nation, Japan lies to the east of China, North Korea, South Korea and Russia. A constitutional monarchy, since 1947 the power of the emperor has been reduced to a ceremonial figurehead, while the government is led by a prime minister and operates on liberal-democratic principles. Although overall human rights standards are high, Japan continues to have particular problems with discrimination along the lines of gender, disability, ethnic minorities and family circumstances.
