Postcard From Japan: Talking Zen, Abenomics, Social Networking and the Constitution With Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

"I have experienced failure as a politician," Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe once said. In his second round as the country's prime minister, he is determined to avoid the mistakes of the past -- beginning with how to deal with the stagnant Japanese economy. I asked Abe about this when I met with him on Thursday afternoon in his office in Tokyo. "My policies do not conform with the conventional wisdom," he said. "However we have been suffering from a long period of deflation and at the end of last year we faced a serious unemployment crisis. I am convinced that my economic policies are the only path to break out of this crisis." For now, while the U.S. and Europe sputter along, restrained by the politics of austerity, Japan under Shinzo Abe is set on a bold course to revive a moribund economy.

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. We are all elated that after launching editions in the UK, Canada, France, Spain, and Italy, HuffPost has gone east -- not only to a new country, but to a new continent. 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. And it's living proof -- since Huffington Post Japan is "live" as of today -- of the way 21st century media have transcended once-formidable barriers of geography, language, and culture.

Welcome to the Huffington Post Japan!
