During a recession you should cut taxes and increase spending. As far as imports are concerned by devaluing your currency you have increased not only the cost of imports but you will pay more for buying locally the things you use to buy cheaper through imports. Protective tariffs are never good. Other countries respond by taking similiar actions.
Yes Japan seems to have a population problem. But when you encourage smaller families thats what happens isn/t it.
