Tokyo was formerly known as Edo, and from 1603 it served as the "seat of power of the Tokugawa shogunate" and was thus the political center of Japan (Naito, 2003). Edo was a cultural hub and Naito asserts that "much of what is now thought of as traditional Japanese culture found its final form in Edo." Edo started life as a village when it was chosen as the site for a castle by Iesayu Tokugawa. The town arose around the castle. As the political center of the country, Edo soon became one of the largest towns in the country. In 1868, it was renamed Tokyo, meaning "Eastern capital."
Tokyo today is the world's largest city, with a metro population over 30 million people. The city is classed as an Alpha world city and is one of the economic and cultural hubs of the planet. Tokyo is one of the most multi-faceted….

Benihana Simulation Assignment

Define the following terms:

a) Service capacity: Service capacity encompasses the capability of a company or organization to perform the current services that it uses. These include services such as information technology services, different working patterns, and also the employment of resources. Service capacity is the ability to ensure that the services can meet the targets and objectives set by the organization (Seyring et al., 2009).

b) Throughput: Throughput is also referred to as flow rate, and is the number of consumers, goods, services, and money that are going through a system or business process for every unit of time. One good example with regard to Benihana of Tokyo is the number of consumers served per hour. This rate is more often than not measured as an average rate (Dhamdere, 2002).

c) Utilization rate: The utilization rate is also referred to as the rate of operating. It….

Edo-Tokyo: History & Culture
Edo-Sakariba and Ginza/Asakusa: A comparison of similarities and differences

Instead of an economic or sociologic determination, [Seidensticker] focuses on the effect upon society of the disappearance of this theater building, that cafe, those geisha houses, markets, and other landmarks, and their replacement stores, subways, and so on... Packed with original material and insights, [this book is] invaluable to scholars, students, and Tokyophiles."

Are Ginza and Asakusa representative at all of Edo sakariba? If so, how? The two are certainly related to one another. Each boasts many "seething" crowds; nightlife and entertainment for would be passers by. Edo sakariba was a romantic and social community, one where people would gather in the streets a hundred years ago to socialize and discuss the goings on. The streets themselves were alive with vendors and entertainers, a welcome site for community members. Public baths and communal gatherings certainly were not uncommon.….

Problems with older residents occured because even though the arena is in a different district than older residential apartments, these two areas are adjacent. esidents and owners in the arena district need to work together to find creative solutions that will satisfy both needs.
ecommendations

These management issues present challenges that could affect the reputation and future ability of the oppongi Hills to remain one of the most desirable destinations in Tokyo. The issues with noise from the arena affecting residents could cause populations in the area to decline. Empty apartments are not profitable and make the area look less attractive, which could have an impact on revenues of in the entire area. The perception that management is ignoring the problem is not good public relations policy. A grievance system needs to be put in place so that residents feel they have input into the system. esolving these issues is the….

Question 3: Historical Developments During the Japanese New Wave- The Tokyo DrifterIntroductionOne of the films that match the historical period of the Japanese New Wave is the Tokyo Drifter (1966), directed by Seijun Suzuki. The film demonstrates multiple themes to show how various transformations in infrastructures and institutions in the 1960s affected the film industry. During this period, historical developments affected other film-related attributes such as exhibition, distribution, and production. The Tokyo drifter shows the impacts of such developments. efore the 1950s, the Japanese film industry featured independent companies run by socialist sympathies, primarily political messages. It was not in the interest of producers to have nonavant-garde films. However, in the 1960s, there was a transformation. Independent companies began venturing into films that were alienated from a major studio. They focused on films that expanded the scope of the Japanese film industry without specifying political ideologies. It is through these….

The level of the investment also isolated them more in the case of a failure. They paid attention to the wrong details. Disney acted on American views of Europe rather than on native views, which could identify the important cultural differences. It appeared that the managers were too confident in their success to research the small details about European cultures.
In planning Euro Disney there were not any contingency plans put into place. The attitude towards customer habits was very complacent. They assumed that there would be so many customers every day, each staying an average number of nights spending an average amount of money. In America this would have worked because there is already a well established theme park culture. The European market proved to be a lot more unpredictable.

Up until now, Disney's venture into China has been anything but magical. The Hong Kong theme park, which opened in….

Over 1,000 Chinese witnesses came forth to testify in the trials which lasted until February of 1947 after the Chinese government posted notices in Nanking regarding the need for credible witnesses, (Chang 1997:170). Unlike the Nuremburg Trials, however, much of the case against the Japanese fell apart thanks to faulty prosecution and a lack of true concern for justice in the region.
The events which conspired in Nanking during the Japanese occupation broke several established international laws for the protection of civilians, prisoners of war, and unarmed Chinese soldiers. According to the International Military Tribunal of the Far East, three classifications of war criminals were established based on the intent and nature of their crimes. This tribunal followed the model set in Europe by the coinciding tribunal the International Military Tribunal of Nuremburg and followed the same charter with the definition of war crimes as "violations of the laws and….

Aum Shinrikyo
In 1995 a terrorist, cult organization in Japan called Aum Shinrikyo perpetrated a Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway (eader, 2000). It left more than a dozen people dead, and thousands more were affected by the gas but later recovered. Many of those affected by it still have problems today, with issues such as post traumatic stress disorder and fear when using the subway system. They also experience vision problems, and worsening of conditions they already had before the incident (Ogawa, Yamamura, & Ando, et al., 2000). One of the most troubling issues, though, was not that the attack occurred, but the way it was handled by emergency response teams who were called in to contain the problem and care for the people who were injured and sick. The gas was released on a busy subway train full of unsuspecting individuals at a crowded time of day, but….

CRNE Event and Response
Over the last several years, the safety of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive related weapons (CRNE) has been increasingly brought to the forefront. Part of the reason for this, is because downfall of the Soviet Union has meant that acquiring these materials from failed states have increased exponentially. As, the stockpiles in many of these areas have questionable security procedures that are allowing terrorist and other rogue organizations to have access to these materials. (Prosser, 2011)

At the same time, the total amount of countries that are possessing these materials have increased dramatically. As different nations, are using these weapons to protect against possible military attacks or internal insurrection. In a number of cases, the majority of states that possess CRNE's are more than likely considered to: have questionable human rights records or they may not have signed different international provisions limiting the proliferation of these weapons.….

Mass Culture in Postwar Japan: As Seen Through the Films, Tokyo Drifter and Ohayo
Post war Japan was flung into a mass market that was unlike any she had ever seen before. Old cultural ties and values were challenged and sometimes discarded. Everything from traditional gender roles and family standards to westernized dress and mass media. The challenges that people faced were enormous and included a generation gap that might have paralyzed the entire culture. The changing values associated with family, respect, love, work and many other factors required many adjustments, for both the generation that remembered a more traditional past and the one who recalled only war and technology. One possible way to interpret such cultural changes is through the relatively modern cultural art of film. The Japanese films Ohayo and Tokyo Drifter both embrace and challenge mass culture in different ways.

In a film review which, contextually analyzed the popular….

Postwar Japanese Economy
PAGES 12 WORDS 4090

Post-orld ar II Japan: A Nation in Transition
Devastated by the Allies in orld ar II, Japan has emerged as one of the world's most economically and technologically advanced societies today. Some observers have suggested that the "Japanese miracle" was the result of a collusion between the government and industry to prosecute economic growth through a series of subsidies and favorable business climates, while others maintain this explosive growth was due to the industrious and business-savvy Japanese people themselves. In order to determine which is correct, this paper will provide a review of Japan from the time of the signing of the peace treaty bringing an end to orld ar II and the years that followed. A review of the peace treaty and what was demanded of Japan to bring an end to the war after the bombing of Nagasaki will be followed by an examination of the role of the….

Apart from a handful of firms, the articles provide inadequate or incomplete information in their prospectuses. I can acquire essential data for purposes of my estimation in my research. The magnitude of under-pricing is estimated at different levels in the secondary markets. For all the articles, the degree of under-pricing appears to be high than the degree of average pricing at different intervals. When an IPO is selling as per the premium public information, it implies that there will be a high demand for its shares and initial allotment in the secondary market. Clearly, these articles will be of utter importance in the course of my research study (Quayes & Hasan, 2008).

These articles provide an empirical base for my research in the markets for new IPOs in Tokyo, Shanghai, New York, and London. The articles have used different samples to….

Not only does her presence allow the couple to feel at home, as if they are in any bar in America, rather than half way around the world, she is representative of Bob's career back home. He is an actor, but not a big, big, actor like many others. He is actually more famous in Japan than he is in his own country, because he has gotten older, and the parts pass him by. The lounge singer would never make it in America, or if she and her band did, it would be in small, insignificant clubs. She represents what Bob's career could turn into - second rate and forgotten, and so, she is somewhat like another form of reality and conscience for Bob. He knows it would be very easy to become just what she is.
There are many things that keep Charlotte and Bill from connecting. Their ages….

(ikipedia, 1) Disney was emboldened in this strategy by the prototype in Japan, though we may now suggest that this effort was significantly aided by the greater interest of the Japanese in estern culture than many in estern Europe. Indeed, the Tokyo site would face few legal barriers, and would succeed momentously with little alteration of its American models required. Here, evidence of a closeness between Japan and the U.S. In terms of modern political and consumer norms suggests little legal obstruction or ethical concern from the Japanese public.
Hong Kong, by contrast, represents a mixed outlook where externalities are concerned. Particularly, the site seems in one regard be designed according to lessons learned from the initial failures in Paris. Namely, the cultural presentation of Hong Kong's Disneyland park and resorts is intended to reflect philosophical, cultural and aesthetic leanings of Hong Kong, rather than of America. This demonstrates the….

Disney Parks
Why do you think that the world's largest theme park operator, Walt Disney Company, was motivated to establish parks in Tokyo, Paris, and Hong Kong?

Disney Strategic Planning was able to find the optimal mix of income, family composition by key demographics, and favorability of national government to their expansion in each region (Data Monitor, 2004). The one area they had the most trouble with from a cultural and media relations standpoint was Euro-Disney in Paris (Forman, 1998). Disney pressed on however as the potential to attract millions of visitors from the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and throughout western Europe galvanized their commitment to this market (Kepler, 2005). Tokyo was a completely different experience, with many Disney fans asking for a park to be built there and the per capita income and demographic factors aligning with Disney's most loyal customer bases (Kepler, 2005). Hong Kong is one of the most….
