What’s it all about?
One characteristic of Japan is the traditional spirit of Wa or harmony, a capacity for blending opposing entities, whether values, people, or positions, and taking them to a higher level. This spirit of harmony, which unifies and fuses different values and positions, is a basic condition of making things in 21st century Japan.
