Firstly, during the ancient times, Japan was an isolated land like any other place with many feudal lords. After a while, citizens decided to end it by introducing a democratic government, banned the feudal system, built a strong market, made a common army for the country and many more.

After Japan defeated Russia in 1905, its colonial ambition grew. It started to send its armies to colonialize the whole world. Moreover, there was a lack of natural resources in Japan so it began spreading its territory. During that time, the USA was expanding its power. The biggest mistake_ attack at the Pearl Harbor in Japan. In return, the USA triggered atomic bombs twice, fat man and Little Boy, in Japan that caused a great loss of life in Japan in Aug, 1945.

Around half the population of Japan was destroyed. Japan surrendered and signed a treaty with USA, which stated that Japan would not built its arm and USA would provide protection to Japan.

In school, Japanese are taught about moral discipline, integrity and characters. For the above reasons, they bounced back. Japanese government asked its brilliant military leader to shift their job to business and expand it. They did the same. A great deal of adversity changed into opportunity. People who became strongly mental began becoming mentally strong. Futileness changed to hopefulness. While USA expanded its power, Japanese began expanding their business all around the globe. At that time, Japan with the help of USA expanded its roots in the global market.
