FOREIGN DESTINATION RESEARCH PROJECT 2 Foreign Destination Research Project There are many places in the United States of America that I have visited in my twenty- five year run, here on Earth. I have been fortunate to have gone to many different states to visit, including Alaska. I have even been to Canada, United Kingdom, and to France.

Japan attacked US forces in 1941 - triggering America's entry into World War II - and soon occupied much of East and Southeast Asia. After Japans defeat in World War II they recovered to become an economic power and an ally of the US. While the emperor retains his throne as a symbol of national unity, elected politicians hold actual decision-making power. Following three decades of unprecedented growth, Japan's economy experienced a major slowdown starting in the 1990s, but the country remains a major economic power.
