First to welcome in the new day & first to see sunrise
Samoa in the Pacific Ocean has the honour as the first country in the world that welcome in the new day.
But people in the East Cape, New Zealand claim the place still hold the honour as the world's first sunrise each and every day, thanks to the curvature of the earth.
However Japan despite known as the "Land of the Rising Sun" can't claim any of the two honours due to its geographical location.
