Japan has no shortages of challenges facing it at the start of the new year. Its businesses face fierce competition from China and South Korea in global markets. And many of its areas damaged by the earthquake and tsunami of 2011 still await restoration. Despite all this, the country has an abundance of corporations that have stood the test of time, including the building of post-war Japan into an international economic power and the recovery from the burst of the economic bubble in the 90s. The program features interviews with leaders of several successful businesses, exploring the resilience of Japanese companies.
