People who want to have an authentic experience can visit Japan so that they can experience the unique culture with its best hospitality. Starting from natural to the artificial, old culture to the newest culture, in fact, having bunch of attractions from different aspects can satisfy the diverse needs of different visitors and can have authentic experiences; people who are interested in the traditional culture and customs of Japan can visit to historical sites such as temples and shrines, families with children can go to amusement parks like the Disneyland and Universal Studio, nature lovers can visit Hokkaido or Mt. Fuji etc. (Brasor, 2014). This may also be the reason Japan attract millions of tourists each
Japan endured several shocking transformations from the mid-nineteenth to the early twentieth century. Before the 19th century, this Nation was politically divided between many military leaders; the most powerful warlord, the shogun, ruled Japan almost as a dictator. People were also divided by hierarchical classes and contact was severely limited with the outside world by these authoritarian rulers. Japan was seen as an isolated country that engaged in diplomatic arrangements with very few country neighbors. As these domestic problems started flourishing even further, foreign American ships began to arrive in Japanese docks, demanding the opening of their ports.
They present an overwhelming challenge and possibly an existential threat. What’s causing it? Japan's economy stagnated in the 1990s after its stock market and property bubbles burst. Companies focused on cutting debt and shifting manufacturing overseas. Wages stagnated and consumers reined in spending.
Which is why it was really affected. In addition to Sendai, other communities were also badly hit by the tsunami including Kamaishi and Miyako in Iwate, Ishinomaki, Kesennuma, and Shiogama in Miyagi, and Kitaibaraki and Hitachinaka in Ibaraki. As the floodwaters retreated back to the sea, they carried with them enormous quantities of debris, as well as thousands of victims caught in the deluge. Large stretches of land were left submerged under seawater, particularly in lower-lying
BIOFUEL AND FOOD SECURITY IN JAPAN Japan’s population is increasing each year. This will be difficult to provide enough and sufficient food, water and energy for a sustainable livelihood. Japan need to increase their food production. By doing this, the energy use in food production should be environmentally friendly and sustain the natural resources efficiently. Major part of sustainable energy should be based on biofuels.
The large amount of water flooding the country can destroy buildings, roads and infrastructure, and in the evacuation drop people off each other, gridlock occurs, power supply and telecommunications goes down and entire communities may be left marginalized in 1908 hit a tsunami Messina in southern Italy that killed 80,000 people . In 1998 hit Papua New Guinea by a tsunami that destroyed towns and killed about 2200 people and 26 December 2004 happens one of our greatest natural disaster when a large earthquake on the seabed in the Indian Ocean caused a massive tsunami that among other things affected the coasts Sri Lanka, India, Thailand and Indonesia. The destruction was catastrophic and at least 230,000 people lost their lives in the disaster, including 543 Swedish
As far as the overseas activities of companies are concerned, it should make dramatic shift in the view that business matters should be left solely to the private sector. Both the public and private sector should make concerted efforts in order to strategically acquire a portion of the global market share, including infrastructure export. CONCLUSION The government’s economic policies and business models that served Japan so well during the postwar catch-up phase through the 1980s have become liabilities for Japan in the post-cold war of the 1990s and the 21st century. To regain its competitiveness, Japan needs to make major changes to cope effectively with the forces of globalization. Among the central changes needed is diversity and innovation that might be described as a ‘global change agent.’ The policy proposals outlined in this paper is a blue print that Japan cannot wade away from them if it is to strategically brand itself as a human resource hub for the globe.
Over at other countries, there are protests at some countries to close all nuclear plants and to stop using nuclear plant to generate power. To sum up, after the Japan 2011 crisis, it did hurt the tourism sector in Japan. People now prefer to travel to developing countries like Vietnam, Cambodia or Thailand. This is because the world are moving at a very fast paced, resulting more countries being open up to tourism sector. And developing countries has been a cheaper alternative to a lot of people, thus resulting for them to travel to these
The tragic day that happened in 2011 was the three part catastrophic events that struck in Japan that had the magnitude of 9.1 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown that killed several thousands of people that have destroyed many homes. The most damaging areas in Japan that was affected by the tsunami was the Tohoku region or the northeastern Honshu region of Japan. The tsunami has cause the nuclear meltdown in Japan that cause another catastrophic event besides earthquake and tsunami. According to John P. Rafferty and Kenneth Pletcher wrote on their article, “The sudden horizontal and vertical thrusting on the Pacific Plate, which has been slowly advancing under Eurasian Plate near Japan, displaced the water above and spawned a series
We don’t live in the sea yet we are still affected by marine pollution, why? Because 70% of oxygen we breath is produced by marine plants thus if marine plant are affected by the pollution and there is shortage in oxygen or animals eat those affected plants in the end we will be affected. Japan being one of the biggest consumer of seafood can be affected, their people can be affected as humans seeing as we are on the far end of the food chain thus if a fish living in the contaminated waters of Japan falls ill, is then caught and served as food to the people ultimately they will fall sick too. When this takes places the consumer can face a great deal of problems from hormonal problem, kidney damage, reproductive problems and nervous system
