With the earthquake of March 11, 2011, and the expanding nuclear disaster that followed, our affluent postwar has finally reached a decisive end. Indeed, this closure had been clearly augured since the 1990s. The collapse of the bubble economy, the close of an era of single-party rule by the Liberal Democratic Party, and the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake and Aum Shinriky sarin gas attacks that came in rapid succession in 1995---these events forced upon us the reality that the affluent postwar was over.
