It'll put Tokyo's name back on the list of leading world cities and financial capital plus put a lot of spotlight on Japan as a rising political power.

Also it's nice to have a break from 3rd word countries hosting the Olympics being as all those (except for maybe Beijing) being a failure.

True. Some Japanese suggest opening casinos like Macau to help the economy.
It won't work. Very stupid idea.


Macau is only a small city, Japan is a country with over 1 billion people. Opening 60 casinos won't help Japan much. Portugal has casinos too and their economy is not comparable with the small city it ruled previously. Both Qatar and Russia have oils and gas. A country with 1 billion or more people does not benefit much with casinos, oil or gas.


Trying to copy the economic models of HK and Singapore also don't work. Smaller economies can rely on international finance. The US, the UK and Japan etc as a whole country, not a city, cannot. The lack of english usage also make Tokyo and Osaka disconnected with other important financial cities.


Japanese companies are not performing well. Foreigners are not willing to invest or work in Japan. There are like 100 or more economies more appealing to investors.

Japan nowadays is a falling political, economic and cultural power.


Here in Asia, less Asians are learning Japanese compared with the 20th century.


Japan ranks below South Korea, the UK, Germany, France and Hong Kong in amount of investment abroad and international tourism expenditure abroad. HK, only a city, has much more investment and tourists from abroad than Japan.

tourism and investment is going up in japan, they are a reemerging military power, and Japan inc is doing it's best in almost over a decade.

i'm not too thrilled at japan reemerging as a military power. China and Japan have never gotten a long. China continually pokes a tiger in the eye. Japan raped asia in ww2...literally. I'd rather have the US keep japan on a tight leash.

Meh, I was taking it more from the angle that it would help diversify their manufacturing output and lead to trickle down effects to other industries (despite political criticism of the MIC in the US they have been a big boost to our economy, etc.).

As for Japan as a military threat I don't think the US is going to completely let them go, just let them develop their military to the point they can be helpful, not hurtful.

Japan is not making any big comeback. I know you want to believe it because you haven't lived there and have a fantasy about it, but it's no comeback kid. It's not China. And I can guarantee you won't be participating in this "resurging" economy beyond tutoring English. So no use boosting Japan, when you're not Japanese

What an extreme reaction, I was only posting links that said Japan is finally growing after decades of stagnation, I never claimed they'd become a superpower, you need to chill.
