Part of the reason there was a huge anime boom in the 80-90s was because of this. Japan was the leading tech producer in the whole world, and many American companies were afraid of being bought by them and many were.


They are currently number 3 because china cheats but yeah, they have been and still are a economic powerhouse. If they ever got their social spending under control and loosened certain regulations they could probably get out of their rescission and claim the number 2 spot again.

I have a feeling Japan will economically rise again, and it will be glorious when they do.


This is not possible because of low birth rates and the fact that Japan is in crazy amounts of debt and has already lowered interest rates to negative range.


theyre probably not going to unless they figure out how to magically solve all of the social problems plaguing their society.

So hi GDP & hi debt equals plateaued economy?


This thread reminds me of why I will never visit Japan. Just like everywhere else on Earth it is slowly being transformed into a homogenized, grey Americanized hellhole. It would only make me sad to see it in person. I wish I lived 200 years ago, the world would have been a much more interesting place to travel in.

That's really only those bustlling pockets of modern capitalism known as "big cities"; it is to be expected. The country-side is still the country-side.


countrysides are usually still transformed. notice there's no trees on the flat areas on those pics. trees are the first things to go when ground is flat


Well they can't exactly grow their rice with trees in the way can they?


I'm sure there are many good examples of a more traditional Japan in the countryside, but still, the cities continue to expand and their influence permeates the entirety of the country. Only something like >>17966 would be worth visiting. I'm not deluded enough to think that North Korea is untouched by modernity, of course, though one reason I'd like to visit it is because it is not as hemmed into the globohomo capitalist web

There's a channel called Abroad in Japan where a miserable Brit did this. He did not enjoy the cycling part.

Fuck I dreamt about Japan again last night.
Ever since I went there years ago and wandered the countryside. I've had vivid dreams ever since. Always following the coastline.

Last night I dreamt that I wandered to a temple located on a little secluded island, only accessible at low tide. The statues and temple foundations all had mussels and seaweed on them from when the water was rising. The night time came along with the tide, stranding me there, and I thought "What a wonderful place to spend New Year's on." Which is strange because I didn't even know it was NYE already today.

These dreams are painful to wake up from.


Is this Kyoto?

Visit Japan before it becomes cosmopolitan and no different from where you live now.

>I hope that one day Japan will regain their imperialistic ambitions and colonize the planet and replace us.
Never. Nobody can undue anglo empirical supremacy. The soviets couldn't. The Nazi's couldn't, china can't. japan will always be owned by america and protected from the evil chinese and japan will never be allowed to leave. they will be ara ara'd by america forever.


that weeb shit will NEVER top mac tonight


i think american vending machines have a rakish charm to them. America has a lot of 'good ol' vibes
