Lived on Java for two years. The smallest 'town' I lived in had 1 million people. I also ate rice with every meal. When I moved back to the US I couldn't understand how empty everything felt and even said it didn't 'look complete.' I also was very timid to start driving on American highways again because I truly could not comprehend the speeds. Even now, over 5 years later, when I go to "big cities" like Houston or even Paris I'm wondering where all the people are. Edit: ❤ Indonesia, debar jantungku

As a sumatran (java neighbor island) that recently visited java for holiday, you literally will and will always see people everywhere you go 😂, but it's not really a problem though because javanese are incredibly nice people and the foods there are incredibly cheap.. Also the infrastructure in java is more advanced than any other island in indonesia so that's why we non javanese sometimes feel jealous but thanks to the current government they boost up the infrastructures to all places in indonesia

1. rice 2. volcanoes 3. Java was not a urban civilization, and since the transition of a country going from rural to urban involves the introduction of revolutionary technology (vaccines, fertilizer) the population growth will increase tremendously during the transition period, but growth will permanently slow down. This also explains as to why Japan has less people than Java today. Japan became a urban country much earlier than Java, meaning it didn't have as good as technology Java had access to in the beggining of it's urbanization. 4. equatorial climate

Java Island is blessed with a fertile soil that is very good for agriculture. Sadly, with many industries opened in Java also means that the agricultural land is shrinking. Industry is also one of the reason why people from other islands choose to move to Java which increases its already big population. In my opinion, Java island should be focused to be an agricultural center of Indonesia, and the other industry should be opened in the other island. This can also be a way to evening out the development across Indonesian islands.

It is easy, Java is very fertile and warm all year because positioned in the equator while most area in Russia such as Siberia is inhospitable due to its extreme weather and situation. I find it is funny that some people surprised that Indonesia has a huge population for an island nation, they forget that UK and Japan are also Island nation with huge population, and Indonesia is far bigger than those countries in term of size. Shows that a lot of people have a wrong understanding and conception of Indonesia.

There was a centralisation policy during Soeharto era (1960s to 1990s). During that time, most of Indonesian resources went to Java. Therefore, almost all nation developments only happened in Java. This propelled people movement from less developed islands in Indonesia to Java. The effects of this policy still can be feel even today. Most of Indonesia infrastructure are located in Java whereas other islands like Papua etc has less developed infrastructure.

I live in Bandung, the capital of West Java and several months ago I visited the island of Sumatra, Padang City to be exact. And I saw HUGE differences between two of the major island. In sumatra, the roads are less clogged by the traffic. Compared to my hometown, it was normal for people to drive or ride their motorbike at around 60-70 km per hour, which you can’t achieve that kind of speed in Java because of the traffic. And also in West Sumatra is more sparsely populated so you still can see lots of dense forests across the Province. Secondly, the rice is also feels different, in Java the rice feels more “sticky” or as we Sundanese people of West Java call it as “Pulen”. Compared to the ones in Sumatra which happen to be more “scattered” but the rice went SO GOOD with their Minangkabau Cuisine. Indonesian Islands are full of surprises. It just feels like you’re in completely different country even if you only visit other islands or cities.

Lot comments mentioned about centralization of Java and it's other food production perks, yet there's one more that differs from it's neighboring island : " Mindset " We the natives of Java both Sundanese & Javanese & others are open to new technology such as modern highway, modern port & others infrastructure while the natives from other island will simply rejected most infrastructure project with reason " PROTECT THE FOREST " which leads to less developed environment which also lead migration to a more developed such as Java which also contribute to massive rise of population. And unlike the natives of the surrounding island who prefer to build religious infrastructure such as mosque, church etc... We the natives of Java prefer to build more PRODUCTIVE infrastructure to promote trade & industrialization thus further contribute to development and in the ends it's decrease the mortality rates & raise the life expectancy which became a base perks to increase population ( you can't effectively increase pop with low life expectancy aight mate ? ) Yet lot of Indonesian from overseas province blame the Java for it's success without a correcting themself . Resources is important, but it's human resources is more important. Remember a couple hundred years ago japanese was not a developed country yet now they're one of it. We " LEARN " from their success & tried to implement it here in Java. That's why the government of Java invest more on infrastructure, education and industrialization rather that on resource extraction, mine, etc... Like neighboring island Special thanks to the Japanese, Russian, Iran and Belgian, for giving our founding fathers the opportunity to study abroad which now became the base of our development roadmap 👍♥️

14:00 While it is true that Borneo hasn’t had active volcanism since the middle Miocene (though a giant cluster mud volcanoes created Tiga Island just off its coast a hundred years ago, the original setting of the famous reality TV show, Survivor), you are incorrect in asserting that New Guinea does not have volcanoes. In fact mainland New Guinea has at least 3 which erupted in the 20th century, including the 1951 eruption of Mt. Lamington, the 1944 eruption of Mt. Waiowa, and the 1935 eruption of Mt. Victory, and there many more which haven’t yet been accurately dated. Not to mention that there are tons of active volcanoes just off the coast of the mainland, near the beginnings of the surrounding island chains.

About Mount Merapi, the most active volcano in Java/Indonesia, yes, it is VERY active that us, Yogyakartans can see the volcanic dome (its peak) changing its form every year. I can even tell which dome belong to which year to some extent since it virtually changes annually. The last big eruption happened in 2010, which is 12 years ago. It also made some of us worry since "normally", Merapi would erupt every 4 years or so. No eruption in a long period of time often means that the next eruption might be bigger than we can handle. However, the mount's activity has increased since 2019 which put our minds a little at ease.

Jakartan and Surabayan traffic is a nightmare compared to my city’s. Who would’ve thunk the answer the reason Java (or Jawa as we call in Indonesian) being so populous was rice and volcanoes? I noticed both Jakarta and Surabaya’s infrastructure is like 5x better than my city’s. Folks around have been saying it’s a remnant of the Suharto era (I never really paid much attention in civics/PPKN for those who know what I mean) when all resources were pooled to Java so people moved there. Man, my country is an insane place and that’s why I love it.

Indonesian history is so interesting! My mother is from the Philippines, which "benefits" from many of the same factors you cite here. Both countries are incredibly populated. The Philippines is the size of Nevada, which has a population of about 4 million people, while the Philippines has about 120 million. Java is the same size as New York state, which has 20 million people, about 120 million less than Java. Both Indonesia and the Philippines are megadiverse countries, meaning the biodiversity in both nations are extremely high. Indonesia has many more species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish than the entire United States, which is about 7 times as large. Both countries are currently experiencing deforestation on a massive scale, and with Indonesia's capital moving to Borneo, it's almost certainly going to accelerate. The Bornean rainforest is the second oldest rainforest on Earth and is expected nearly disappear by 2100.

​@Dhirendra Bahadur Bista Lack of population awareness in many of these places means tax payer's money goes to cleaning up natural and man-made calamities instead of education and healthcare. High population magnifies it and the entire world is affected. Wealthy communities also contribute to environmental degredation - take Florida, California and Louisiana, for instance. Developing countries need to act very fast before their treasures are plundered. People will come and visit and spend their money to reminisce about cleaner times, and away from the World's cities.

@Mac C.I actually live in the Philippines and below is my take on the state of the Catholic Church here as it stands: The Catholic Church's influence on Filipino society, culture and politics has been on the decline for roughly the last 20 years or so and counting. Gone are the days when Bishops can sway the electorate (the last two Presidents who got elected were people the clergy actually despised), gone are the days when it was taboo to have premarital sex, and gone are the days where it was seen as an embarrassment to have kids out of wedlock (except maybe in the upper crust where the "nakakahiya", gotta-be-respectable-at-all-times mentality still persists). The fact that over 50% of the newlyborn babies here are born out of wedlock demonstrates how normalized it has become. Plus women can buy contraceptives at the counter in pharmacies as well these days. I rarely meet people my age (mid 30s) who have more than 1 or 2 kids nowadays. And I notice that Church attendance on Sundays in many places has dropped below the numbers who go to the local Sabungan on the same day. And I am meeting more and more people in my age range who are either non-practicing, irreligious, agnostic, and even atheistic. The younger generations are much less forgiving of the Church meddling in the affairs of the State. The more the Catholic Church tries to interfere with the government, the more people will turn away. If they were stupid enough to make Cory Aquino a "Saint", watch the influence of the Catholic Church in this country plummet even further and faster than it currently is right now... 🤷‍♂️

Most actively volcanic country should be taken with a grain of salt. Because right now Iceland is extremely active, but based on this video you’re saying the amount of volcanoes indicates which country is the most volcanically active country, not frequency. As Hawaii alone would account for most of the US’s volcanic activity

As a native Javanese born British chap, I just find it totally mesmerising when you compare Java with Great Britain, how Java is capable of sustaining twice the population of the UK. My folks lived in Kaliurang which is only about 15 miles as the crow flies from Merapi, where their plot of land was surrounded by rice paddies. It's great knowing that you can look out the bedroom window, to see this massive potassium fartoxide vent that also likes to shit out lahars. My parents got evacuated during the 2010 eruption because they were within the 20km exclusion zone of Merapi. If you want to see something amazing, check out the village of Kali Adem. It's like a modern day Pompei. The Javanese have very spiritual beliefs, such as Mbah Marijan ruling over the slopes of Merapi. Most would rather believe in folklore than quantitative evidence, which unfortunately claimed more lives due to their persistent belligerence and disregard of the officials. Got awesome pics of my parent's house looking like an alpine ski chalet except god's dandruff in this case wasn't snow but a buttload of ash on the roof. Gotta love sulphuric acid eh when the rain washes it off! Also, if you live within that region, get used to earthquakes. Whilst most humans only have one crack on their arsehole, mother nature gave Java many a crack for anything from loose change to small buildings to slip into. 2010 was indeed a bit of a rough year. People taking refuge in Jogja were also fully aware of the tsunami threat from the south via Parangtritis. But alas, the people are adaptable and have learnt to continually rebuild. That being said this video at about 11:00 hits the nail on the head... Rice is nice! What this video doesn't disclose is the fact that most Javanese also smoke 20 Gudang Garam kretek fags a day, gorge themselves with mutton and have a bowl of gudeg every morning. How they manage to have such long life expectancy when they suffer intense amounts of diabetes and cardio vascular diseases including high cholesterol is beyond me... But the answer is simple and nice... it is rice! You might also find high volumes of NOx and two stroke vapour in their lungs due to the ridiculous volume of traffic on the island that loves to move at a snails pace. The infrastructure is improving, but like most other commenters have rightly said, the hangover of the Suharto regime is that most investment and capital injection has been predominantly focused on Java. My parents keep reminding me that I'm spiritually Javanese, but the only thing I have in common is the fact that I still eat rice. Matur nuwun!

@khaly therese vhangetteuy you know that's quite funny, my grandad was the same; "Aku lebih enak hidup 70 tahun dengan enak dari pada hidup 80 tahun sengsara" he was referring to stopping smoking to live longer compared to smoking like Thomas the Tank Engine every waking moment. Old school Javanese are proper ketus. Never engage in any meaningful discussion or dialogue with them because you'll get flooded with proverbs before being dealt with the inevitable "kualat lho!"

If there were to be another Krakatoa/Tambora-sized volcanic eruption in or near Java, the consequences would be quite catastrophic, given the much higher population nowadays than during the 1800s when first Tambora and then Krakatoa erupted.

You forgot to mention one of the most important reason why Java has a lot of people beside the fertile land and large erable land. Java was a hot mess for a long time. There was non stop war just like pre-tokugawa era in Japan. There will always war of successions, and kingdom expansion. But still, Java produces rice in large quantities which they export it to many places in the archipelago. Even when Dutch started to get control. The last big war in Java (before world war ii) is Java war or Perang Diponegoro (1825-1830). After that, Java become relatively peaceful so citizens doesn't require to go to war. The Dutch colonial government become more powerful. The population then skyrocketed and it grow until now. The agriculture expansion also has some effect too. In 19th century, there are many forest opened for agriculture. They grew export crops for Europe market like indigo, tea, coffee, and the most important before the great depression is sugar cane. Since there are more land opened, more people spawned. Java was once filled with lots of rainforest now only few of them survive.

Java in ancient language literally means island of rice (Jawa dwipa). Javanese culture developed around rice. Rice ideally grow far from beach. Although has big port cities, almost all (if not all) capital of Javanese kingdoms throughout thousands year of it's history always located deep inland. You can also look at Javanese language. People from port cities tends to use "rude" Javanese (ngoko), 3rd layer of 3 layers of politeness. The culture is more egalitarian because it's far from keraton (palace) influence.
