Discovered this great Japanese journalist last night. Y. Yamamoto, 75 year old man who lives in Japan and writes on all kinds of subjects. He pulls no punches at all, so you might not agree with everything he says, but he makes some very interesting points and he knows his history, plus his English writing skills are fantastic. Bookmark and check back frequently.
Just to get your attention here is a line from his most recent posted article.
All in all, 3/11 was the final confirmation that Japan is a dead country.
Like I said he pulls no punches.
Yuichi Yamamoto: He launched this blog in August 2004 when he was 68 years old. He is a Japanese citizen – but only technically so. He spent his entire career in the international business scene from 1959 through 2005, mostly as a financial manager. Those years encompassed the high-growth era of the ’60s and ’70s, the bubbling ’80s and the post-bubble doldrums which led Japan to fall terminally ill.
