Nice work here. I'd just like to point out that nation should be nations and that we need to know when to switch to past simple:
A:Have you traveled a lot, Dong-Su?
B:Yes, I've been to lots of nations.
A:wow!! Have you ever been Japen?
B:Sure. I've been to Japen twice. The first time was when I went to Tokyo in 2001 and then I went to Osaka in 2003.
been = visited

It was probably just a typo, but you should also include the preposition to in your question about Japan:
Have you ever been to Japan?
P.S.--Note the correct spelling of Japan. There is no e.
