FYI, Fujifilm moved the production of its massive hit X100VI camera from Japan to China to cope with the massive demand.

X100V made in Japan was basically an unobtanium because Fujifilm's Japanese production capacity was so small and used X100V sold for twice the MSRP.

To cope with expected market demands, Fujifilm had to move the production of X100VI to China, not because China was cheaper than Japan, but because more labor was available.

Japan Inc manages to invest large sums of money outside Japan but not in Japan where the economic situation is deteriorating.

When it comes to profits, Japanese companies are not shy to forget their roots.
