    Only #4 is correct.

    And you need to say 'a book' as there is more than one book from which you can get information about Japan.

    Re: where, which, that

    The most natural versions are, in my opinion

    I am reading a/the book that I can get more information about Japan from.
    I am reading a/the book which I can get more information about Japan from.
    I am reading a/the book I can get more information about Japan from.

    Re: where, which, that

    Rover posted seconds before I did. (He was too fast for me this morning.)

    He is, of course, right -#4 is correct. I find it a little formal.
