Futurism is not just about nice-looking buildings. Social harmony, economic prospects, sustainable development, and technology are all important factors, among many, to consider. It's not as superficial as what people see on a trip.

The most difficult thing in Japan is achieving success and there's alot of pressure. Even their college entrance exam is one of the most difficult in the world. Those who fail is most likely commit suicide.

And sometimes in Japan, suicide or "hara kiri" is an honorable thing to do.

Very agree.

One of the biggest mistakes made by Japan, despite its super achievements in economical and technological aspects , most of the people feelin depressed by the daily jobs and studies, and nobody has stepped forward to bring about this issue.

I think it also has to do with their culture

That is a common theme across East Asia, and not just at the college level. Once in a while we hear stories of such events in Korea and in Hong Kong.

I totally agree to your point, in my opinion, Tokyo is more furturistic than HK generally though most of buildings in Tokyo are plain, they have better refurbishment.

But I strongly disagree someone saying that HK is around 5000th on this planet, it's obviously biased.

Tokyo also has some nice scrapers. The Cityhall Tower is already a landmark.

Forgive them, traditionally native Malays have a strong anti-Chinese sentiment. He said HK island has only 2 MTR stations and HK is the 5000th city on his list. We can now confirm all these anti-Chinese rumours, at least true for some notable number of people in Malaysia. They should be glad that such brainless anti-Malay sentiment doesn't exist in HK.

SE Asia hasn't been very friendly to native Chinese throughout history simply because the Chinese community holds most of the economic power. Indonesia's race riots a decade ago show how extreme things got.

If I recall correctly, the city of Tokyo is portrayed as supermodern in a very effective way, in the movie "Lost in Translation".
