ekonomiskt starkaste länderna I världen. Starkare är bara USA. Ingen har råd att låna så mycket pengar till anda länder som Japan. Japan har det största handels överskott, därför att Japanska varor säljs så framgångsrikt över hela världen.

History of Japan & Understanding the Communication System.
Culture is “more often a source of conflict than of synergy. Cultural differences are a nuisance at best and often a disaster” (ITIM International, 2003). Communication across culture is not an easy assignment for an international manager to learn within a short period of time especially it is an ongoing learning process. Communication is “a process of shared meaning by transmitting messages through media such as word, behavior, or material artifacts” (Deresky, 2008). Language discrepancies are an obvious factor. Likewise important are people skill as well as understanding and adapting to the social and working etiquette’s

The text, “Fujiwara and Murakami Genji as Assistants to Emperors” was written by Chikafusa, a couple of years after the Period Kamakura Japan (1180 to 1133) and went into the Kenmu Restoration period. This period was marked by the rise of militarism that attempted to make Japan a centralized government. During this time the imperial line remained unchallenged and exercised a vast amount of power.

Japan is the Worlds largest aid donor, and Japan provides much of this aid to Turkey. It invests in Turkey because in the Middle East, Turkey is the only democratic country. Turkey is a developing country with a stable government so it is a good investment. Further, Japan does not have a strong army; therefore, Japan wants Turkeys partnership because Turkey has strong military power. However, to specifically understand the reasons for Japanese aid to Turkey, one must first analyze Japans aid policy and then specifically her aid policy towards the Middle East and Turkey.Long (1999) argued that conventional wisdom views Japanese economic assistance as either a response to

Today Japan and the United States are close allies, but from 1941 and 1945, they fought a bitter and bloody war-Why did they fight this war? The answer to that question, from the American perspective is simple: the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. The Americans were angry at the Japanese for their invasions of first Manchuria (1931), then China (1937), and later French Indochina (1940).

Japanese culture is very diverse from that of American culture. Japan is a country with approximately 125 million people packed very tightly in a small area. By nature they are an introverted people and are generally not receptive to people outside of their culture.

When in a meeting or large gathering, DO NOT introduce yourself. Wait for your superior or co-employee to introduce you to the other employees and then you state your position in the company and bow as a sign of greeting and respect.
It is improper to make excuses when you did something wrong at your work. Apologize, bow your head and promise to meet future expectations.
Saving face is crucial in Japan (Avramova, 2015). It is unnatural to scold an employee in front of other employees. This incident is usually called for a private conversation.

Eager to enter the world´s second largest toy market, Toys “R” Us executives begin in the late 1980s to formulate strategies for opening large discount toy stores in Japan. However, the American company faced setbacks due to Japanese store-size regulation, application procedures, and a long-standing multi-layered distribution system. Continued effort and the acceptance of a Japanese partner enabled the company to prepare for the opening of a Toys “R” Us outlet in 1991. Faced with a lack of direct distribution deals and high land and labor costs, executives of Toys “R” Us Japan worried about the ultimate success of their new venture

1. The Japanese culture and customs are very different from what Kelly was used to in the United States. Within the case, the biggest issue with the Japanese businessmen that Kelly saw was the issue of being a woman. With the Japanese culture, many Japanese men do not relate easily to women with authority. This presented a major problem with kelly as she was seen more as an "office lady" then the program manager of her start up internet services company. Her talent as a manager was being overlooked due to their culture. Women in Japan between the ages of 25-30 tend to leave the workplace to start families and may return eventually to a part-time

Japan’s tough economic development of the 1980s ended at the start of the 1990s. At the end of 1980s, irregularities inside the Japanese economic organization had qualified a hypothetical asset price bubble of massive scale by Japanese enterprises, banks and securities corporations. The mixture of extremely high land prices and low interest rates temporarily caused sharp liquidity of the market. This led to enormous borrowing and strong investment mainly in domestic and global stocks and securities. Realizing that this bubble was unsupportable, the Finance Ministry of JAPAN precisely increased interest rates in late 1980’s. This severe course of action metaphorically bursted the bubble, and

During WW2, Japan had one of the most terrifying weapons at sea and on land. They had Kamikazes, people who killed themselves while doing damage to troops or ships. Hearing BANZI in the jungle was something that scared many Allie troops. Although this was the most famous Japanese tactic in the war there were other types of weapons that many people have yet to hear about even after 50 years after the war. These weapons include the unmanned fire balloons, Kamikaze subs, and the dirty nuke they almost had.

By the time Buddhism entered Japan in the sixth century C.E., it had already become a world religion with a history of a thousand years. The form of Buddhism that from the start was dominant in Japan is known as Mahayana, the Buddhism of the Greater Vehicle, and it brought with it an enormous canon of religious literature, an elaborate body of doctrine, a well-organized priesthood, and a dazzling tradition of religious art and architecture - all of which Shintô lacked in the sixth century. Although its view of the world and mankind differed markedly from that of Shintô, it is important to understand that within the teachings of Mahayana Buddhism both differences from and similarities to the

Indeed, the principles of Containment were central to Truman’s decision in the summer of 1950. Containment had proved a success in Europe, most notably in Greece and Berlin, thus America decided to once again use its power and influence, especially economic, to defend the independence of countries threatened by the expansion of Communism. America were under the assumption that North Korea’s leader Kim Il Sung was simply a puppet of Moscow, and thus in halting Kim Il Sung, Stalin would have been taught a lesson.

That is why GLOBE classifies societies in 10 cultural clusters and nine cultural dimensions, by using earlier findings by Hofstede, Schwartz, Smith, Inglehart, and others.
Japan falls in the cultural cluster with a name of “Confucian Asia”. Before getting into details about the culture of this country, we would need to identify the word “Confucian” in its context. According to Human Resource Development

It portrays Japanese society as divided by social classes, but also I think it was this particular division that made Japan the cohesive nation that it was. Dunn also portrays how each class was divided within itself and how it was also a well oiled machine.The importance's of each class in Japan at the time was different as we would see it in the western approach to it.

Imperialism is the imposition of one nation's government, culture and economic needs on another nation or territory. In Japan, imperialism meant the desire to form an expansionist policy on the nations and areas surrounding it. Although Japan's main imperialist aims were endeavoured during the Second World War, their imperialist ambitions are evident from as early as 1894, during the Sino-Japanese War with China where it gained much influence in Manchuria and Shandong. In 1895 Japan took control of the island of Formosa (modern day Taiwan), in 1905 Japan seized control of Karafutu from the outskirts of Russia, and in 1910, after victory in the Russo-Japanese War, Japan annexed Korea, which

In The Origins of the Second World War in Asia and the Pacific, Akira Iriye discusses the significance of Japan's incursions into China's Manchuria province. He examines the world's political structure at the time as well as its subsequent reaction to this act, not forgetting the domestic politics of Japan and China at the time. He also attempts to explain why the "West" seemed to shift so suddenly from tacit support of Japanese control of Manchuria to outright war with the former, a great far eastern power. In this work, the author seems to contend that the war that would take place in Asia and the Pacific would be inextricably linked to Europe's jostling of power and its coming

Japan has the oldest life expectancy in the world. That means people in Japan live a really really long time. Men live to 79 years old. Women live a little over 86 years old. What in the world causes Japanese people to live so long?
After WWII, Japan had one of the lowest life expectancies in the world, which suggests it’s not genetics that keeps them alive for so long (the guy in the picture above just turned 113). It’s not even that Japanese people visit doctors 12+ times a year. The answer is something else, and it’s something you can do as well to increase your own life expectancy (and get healthier, too)
