quote of the day

As things stand, Japan is adrift, anchored neither in East nor West and scoring badly on virtually all globalization criteria. Japan has been a mainly mute global player.

Japan is adrift, anchored by east, but continuously trying to be like the west and trying to 'look' different rather than actually being different. Japan is a nation of children where everything has a song and has to be cute. That is why it is a silent player in the field of globalization.
