Description:

This paper demonstrates that the young generation from Japan and China has a mindset that is not quite similar to their parents' and traditional society's expectations, which often cause a great deal of conflicts between the young and the old. The author shows that in "The Story of Noriko" the traditional Japanese society is known to frown on the increase in the number of women pursuing a significant career goal, rather than minimal tasking individual, because the conservative and relatively older generations believe that women, especially young women, are not qualified to manage the responsibilities and tasks men perform. The author uses the book, "Golden Arches East: McDonald's in East Asia" to describe how the life style of Chinese customers, especially the younger generations, have changed as McDonald's has entered the local Chinese society. The author concludes that, when a new lifestyle or culture develops, the young generation creates a hybrid culture to accommodate living in the 21st Century and traditional China or Japan.

From the Paper:

"In "The Story of Noriko," Noriko is a young woman who resides in Tokyo who is forced to encounter one of her dramatic real crisis. She is looking for a career where she can actually utilize her potentials instead of being just another Office Lady whose task is minimal and enduring without any chance of obtaining a significant position at a corporation. The traditional Japanese society is known to frown up on the increase in the number of women pursuing a significant career goal rather than minimal tasking individual, because the conservative and relatively old generations of the society believe that women, especially young women, are not qualified to manage the responsibilities and tasks men perform."
