In this paper, the author examines the differences in the culture of Japan to America. He looks at the significant differences between Western business culture and Japanese business culture based on studies taken and articles written. In particular the author looks at the work of Professor Yoshimori who tells us that the Japanese mind is complicated because of the archaic ways of thinking that still exist in the depths of the mind of an educated contemporary Japanese man or woman. The author proceeds to discuss the history of the Japanese economy and looks at its industrialization. The paper prudently points out that Japan learnt how to reinvent itself when it came into contact with various innovations, religious, economic and political, but never lost its national character. The paper continues to discuss the methods that the Japanese use to manage and develop their businesses. In conclusion, the author relates that many economists believe the rigidity of the national character has eventually caused Japan's economy to come apart in the past decade.
From the Paper:"Schawecker's Guide also tells us that Buddhism originally was imported to Japan in 538 or 552 AD in form of a present from the king of the friendly Korean kingdom of Kudara (or Paikche). The ruling nobles welcomed the new religion while the common people did not understand its complex theories. After a few conflicts with the native religion Shinto, the two religions soon were able to co-exist harmonically and even complemented each other. During the Nara period, the great Buddhist monasteries in Nara, for example the Todaiji, gained strong political influence which was one of the reasons for the government to move the capital first to Nagaoka (784) and then to Kyodo.
Nevertheless, the problem of politically ambitious and even militant monasteries remained a main issue for the governments during many centuries of Japanese history."
