Japanese is an East Asian language. It is spoken by about 128 million people, primarily in Japan, where it is the national language. Although Japanese is spoken almost exclusively in Japan, it is also being used outside globally. Through Japanese annexation of Taiwan and Korea, before and during World War II, as well as partial occupation of China, the Philippines and various Pacific islands, locals in those countries learned the Japanese language. As a result, many elderly people in these countries can speak Japanese well.
Japanese emigrants can also be found in Argentina, Peru, Australia (especially in the eastern states), Canada (especially in Vancouver where 1.4% of the population has Japanese ancestry), the United States (notably Hawaii, where 16.7% of the population has Japanese ancestry, and California), and the Philippines (particularly in Davao region and Laguna province). It thus shows how globally the Japanese language has marked its presence.
