Why Japanese loves Louis Vuitton and ignore major foreign IT companies

My Australian friend once mentioned to me during his first visit to Japan that he noticed that eating is interacting in Japan. At many sushi place, you grinde your own wasabi. We mix chopped nori, ground ginger to our taste at the table when we eat cold soba noodle

My new acquintance and I were talking about our own perspective about economic situation by region. He now lives in Shanghai, and that gives him a good perspective about what is really happening in China as well as how China is making a difference within the region
