Kjeld Duits is a journalist that reports about Japanese culture and politics at his website: http://www.ikjeld.com/
Much of his reporting has been particularly insightful since news about Japanese culture usually sways between love of manga, samurai and geisha to hatred and fear of the "yellow menace that was going to wipe us all out in the 1940s" and "the evil yellow menace that work too hard and are killing us in auto production and the sciences.'
Japan is not perfect by any means. It is also not a country that needs to be fixed necessarily by conforming to American culture. So, I appreciate Kjeld for reporting on the good, the bad and the ugly of this nation.
It seems that the Generation X and Y employees in Japan are exhausted and not liking it according to the article to be found here.
