Kenya is the country where the equator lies across the center of the country in eastern Africa. The Area of this country is 1.5 times of Japan and this country faces the Indian Ocean. It is about the 15th century that Vasco da Gama visited this place that prospered in trade as the pivot of traffic. It became the U.K. territory at the end of 19th century, and a follower received it as a colony from 1920. It achieved independence in 1963 and became the republic in 1964.
