The Japanese are an amazing people.
Having been to their fine country, one can't help but notice a sense of order and spurious energy. The trains arrive on time, the harajuku crowd is loud and about, the food is amazing, and the people are generally helpful and polite.
I don't know how to describe it, but there's this intangible aura of shall we say, "maturity", in some countries with a long history of strife (like much of western europe).
It somehow reflects the ability for the entire population as a whole to take things unto themselves and drive forward.
They will weather the storm.
