Japan is one of the countries with the highest number of publicly accessible webcams. Actually it is number two after the US, here on Opentopia. You will find many unusual and intriguing webcams here. Temples, construction sites, markets, vending machines, laundromats, and quite a few aquariums and animal cams.
The country of Japan, (日本 Nippon in Japanese), is a collection of islands in East Asia, in the Pacific Ocean. The population of Japan is approximately 126 milllion people.
Not surprisingly, some of the most well-known webcam manufacturers are Japanese, such as Panasonic, Sony and Toshiba.
These are web cameras with IP addresses, which send a continuous stream of pictures in the Motion JPEG format. These feeds are checked every three hours or so. The first frame of the video is grabbed and resized as a thumbnail. The general location is at first guessed based on the IP number, but can be edited by whoever has better information.
These videos are most likely copyrighted by whoever owns the cameras. The snapshots you see here appear as fair use according to copyright law. However, if a picture from your webcam appears here and you object to that, let us know and it will be removed.
