Japan will continue to see decades of stagnation, unfortunately. It has massive levels of debt, and a declining workforce.
Also, I think people underestimate the true impact of Fukushima. There will be major health issues in the coming years.
I agree they will continue just like after WW2 with the future of technology like the Cd player etc in the 80's but in the 21st century onwards.

Technological advancement always moves Westwards.
Up until the turn of the century Britain was the most technologically advanced country.
After world war 1 that shifted to America.
After world war 2 Japan ripped off American technology and made them cheaper, eventually the likes of Sony (walkman) and Toshiba (videotape) began to innovate to become number one.
Right now the innovation is shifting to South Korea (Samsung, LG) with new technology such as OLED TV.
China has become the new rip-off merchants like America, Japan and Korea before it, but eventually they too will innovate and you'll see companies like Huawei overtaking Sony, Samsung and Panasonic.
then it's gonna come right back to america again lol. or maybe mexio

If you are looking for games you find a good bit of stuff from Korea too. Other than a few others things in maybe German I don't see a whole lot from other countries on the internet unless you are specifically looking for it.
That's where I get the majority of solid information from on world events (I do get a lot of other, less trustworthy information from other sites and blogs).

My point wasn't the actual number of sites, but how connected they are with everyone else. In other words, how much influence they got over the increasing globalization of the internet. China has a ton of people, and I believe has the largest number of people on the internet. However given the sheer amount of people with the internet they don't seem to be connecting or influencing other countries with it.
This basically sums it up, secondly outside of China, Chinese is not really an extremely potent international language of business or science. They tend to use English, which is why English websites are so powerful, and how the internet is making English the defacto language. The only other languages that really have comparable spread and global power are Spanish and Arabic. Chinese could easily grow though if the economy continues to strengthen. Japanese is kind of big, but it's not really popular in the same way as English, Spanish and Arabic.

As a result, I envision Japan transforming itself into a resource-based economy that could also eventually use Fusion power as a far safer alternative to Fission which caused the Nuclear Disaster of 2011.
why do we NEED fusion?
We have other power sources like hydro electric and wind and tidal power!
