Japan consumes about 5 million barrels of oil a day, making it the third biggest consumer, with almost all of it coming from outside Japan.

Japan's sources of oil in 2007:

Saudi Arabia 28%

United Arab Emirates 25%

Iran 12%

Qatar 9%

Kuwait 7%

Indonesia 3%

Iraq 1%

Other 15%

BTW - Japan is the largest customer of Kuwaiti oil followed by India, Singapore and South Korea. The US got 1.5% of it's oil in Dec 2008 from Kuwait.
