Political scandals, governmental instability and the poison-gas assault in critical Tokyo exhibit that Japan is passing via a major social challenge. It impacts nearly each social unit: relations, institution, corporation, political events, religions and the kingdom. And it concerns each phase of the inhabitants, old and young, women and men, administration and labour, the elite and the plebe. between different issues, employees are growing to be disappointed with corporation lifestyles, households are undermined via discord and divorce, even the ruling Liberal Democratic get together collapsed (as did lots of its opponents). the japanese are ever tougher to steer and the politicians, bureaucrats and businessmen who as soon as led them are more and more useless. hence, whereas many reforms are mooted, and a few are initiated, only a few are literally carried out. lower than those stipulations, the numerous unfavorable developments can't be halted - not to mention reversed - and the problem should still worsen.

These are very substantial changes for a supposedly immutable and mutually beneficial system. Some of the 'reforms' were made necessary by employees who just could not stand the old system. But far more came from employers who wanted to shape the system in ways that were more advantageous to them. Yet, while the system is becoming more and more 'Western' in some respects, with workers doing a specific job and being paid for that job, and also being discarded if they are no longer useful, it has remained different - or Japanese,' if you will - in others.
