Japan is an island nation, and fish is a readily available and easily accessible food source. (With 70% of Japan being mountainous, it is not easy to raise a large amount of livestock. This necessitates the importation of meat from other countries, which can be expensive. Thus, fish, in addition to its availability, is a cheaper alternative.)and that is why japan has so little gardens and ranches
