At any rate, the Japanese economy, especially domestic consumption, is sluggish. We must give the new government time to turn the tide because things cannot change so suddenly.
In contrast, consumer spending is strong in Asian countries. China, South Korea and Taiwan are seemingly indifferent to the aftershock of the Lehman crash a year ago. The consumption behavior of the general consumer is incomparably stronger than Japan.
In the last few months, the number of inquiries is rising. What a sharp contrast to the March-April period.
More power to Japan and the Japanese people!
