Nihonium was discovered in Japan. It is the first element to be discovered in Asia. To showcase this, we made our tile the Japanese flag. Since the name of nihonium translates to "land of the rising sun" in English, we made the red circle of the flag a sunrise. Along with this we added a radioactive sign to the top left of the tile. This is because nihonium is highly radioactive. Finally, we added cherry blossom trees to the bottom of our tile to represent more of the Japanese culture.
