Japan Then and Now

(Photo borrowed from Time.com)

My colleague brought this photo gallery at Time magazine's internet site contrasting photos of Japan then (1989) and now (2009) to my attention. Twenty years seems to make a lot of difference. Most of the 1989 photos, like the one above, are happy, positive and celebrating the bubble economy. Now seems to be isolation, recession, doom and gloom. Perhaps a little simplistic, but some interesting photos anyway. Check it out.

Thanks to P.S. for the heads up on this one.
