In fact, the mountain area covers approximately 73% of its total land area in Japan. Too much, but I love mountains ;)

haha ! i wanted to see if it is possible to translate in a not "word-to-word" way.. so I said "japan is a very mountainous country" and it was wrong. ! i knew it would be but I tried. certainly there is a word for "mountainous" in russian but, really, "a montainous country" is a country with many mountains. By the way, for my native english-speaking friends, "mountainous" comes from the french" montagneux", and" mountain" is"montagne" like 40% of the english vocabulary! No hard feelings !

I dont believe the translation " japan is a country, that's many mountains" is correct. Shouldnt it be some thing like '..a country with many mountains'? ..or 'where many mountains are'?

"Japan is a country of many mountains" ought to be correct. It is more lyrical !!

What would the Russian sentence be for "Japan is a country with a lot of mountains"? = Япония-страна с множеством гор?

"Множество гор" sounds weird.

I don't think "Japan is a country where are many mountains" should be incorrect

It's not proper English - it should be where there are many mountains.
