Freshly overtaken by China, Japan now seems to stand at the vanguard of a new downsizing movement, leading the way for countries bound sooner or later to follow in its wake. In a world whose limits are increasingly apparent, Japan and its youths, old beyond their years, may well reveal what it is like to outgrow growth.
A decent comment, though people might be disagree. Japan should become a country to which people like to come to live and visit and which establishes its own universal value. Unique cultural value does not have to be xenophobic nor self-denying. That is, xenophobic is another form of self-denial.
