The root of the problem is the fundamental flaw in city planning and enforcing home building regulations.

First reason for poor resale outlook of homes is quality and design of neighboorhoods, I have encountered this first hand in Japan their is no consistnacy in building nice neighborhoods.

Property laws are to lax and not consistant. In the West and most developed countries People take pride in their homes and neighborhoods and keep the property clean and the buildings maintaned.

Second the realestate companies are a joke and alot of them have ties to indesirables.

I could go on and on but until they stop putting buildings on a postage stamp size property in the middle of nowhere and houses that looked like they where designed by a someone on acid it will never change.

U.S. auto companies have export problems to Japan and they have given up. In Japan, Keiretsu is a form of corporate structure in which a number of Japanese companies link together, usually by taking small stakes in each other and usually as a result of having a close business relationship, often as suppliers to each other. The structure, was a way to defuse the traditionally adversarial relationship between buyer and supplier. If you own a bit of your supplier, reinforced sometimes by your supplier owning a bit of you, the theory says that you are more likely to reach a way of working that is of mutual benefit to you both than if your relationship is at arm’s length. U.S. auto companies disliked Japan’s keiretsu because they saw them as a restraint of trade. keiretsu restrains trade because there is a very strong preference to do business only with someone in that Japanese family. In Japan the keiretsu were regulated by specific laws, and they were structured in such a way that cooperation between them was almost compulsory. People talk about how successful BMW and Mercedes is, but in reality, it's a drop in the bucket when BMW sells slightly over 20,000 vehicles a year in Japan.

You are soo right on the money here, I don't unberstand why -'s too many Japan weebo's here I guess.

Doing business here with foreign products is a crapshoot at best. I can't Imagine the hastle that car manufacturers have to deal with. I bought a foreign car here and paid about 20% more than I should have, when I asked the dealer why he said basically what you said, they nickel and dime them it's all part of the non-tariff barriers they are soo good at here.

@sensei258 Dude 3 months is all they could stand of each other, after they moved in together! I don't know your daughters and are sorry that they had problems with their Husbands.

I saw a like day in the life documentary with that guy from morning bird with her, she is high maintenance to say the least. And consider the fact 40 never been married (I don't count 3 months or playing house for a year) I have friends like this, and at that age very difficult bringing someone into your life after you have done it alone, and quite successfully for that length of time. Marriage is compromise as I'm sure you know.

But I must reiterate HOT!!
