Japan is one of the civilizations in Civilization VI.

Description[]

In Civilization VI, each civilization has two abilities. One is based on what the nation has done throughout history and the other is tailored to what happened during the ruler's reign. Japan's special ability is called Meiji Restoration. This ability lets the Japanese create powerful and compact cities by giving them bonuses for districts built next to each other. Hojo's forces take advantage of his Divine Wind ability, land units get an advantage fighting next to the coast and naval units get a combat bonus in Shallow Water tiles.

Japan can build Samurai in addition to other military units. These Unique Units don't lose combat strength when they take damage making them hard hitting until the end. Samurai can be unlocked by discovering the Military Tactics Technology.

Japan also has the Electronics Factory. This replaces the regular Factory in an Industrial Zone and provides bonus production as well as Culture to nearby cities, not just it's home city.

In Civilization VI, Japan's power comes from building densely settled cities to benefit from adjacent districts. Their strong coastal defenses make them ideal for settling islands and terrain other Civs might find confining for growth or difficult to defend. Samurai provide a powerful mid-game option for conquest should you need to buy yourself further space for expansion.
