Japan's spirit is being tested by the same recession and financial crisis afflicting all industrialized nations. But paradoxically, there are answers to be found to Japan's very modern crises in its most ancient traditions. There are shrines and temples and gardens everywhere.

Konnichiwa! I'm here in Tokyo with our talented HuffPost Japan team in our Akihabara offices to launch HuffPost Japan, our first edition in Asia.

The launch of Huffington Post Japan represents the fulfillment of our goal of inviting ever more voices from around the world to join our growing global conversation.
