Re: one impression

japan seemed to me as a country not exactly embarrassed by its heritage but instead distracted by the sheer amount of consumer goods from the west.

I think you may have a clearer view, as a first-time visitor, than we do; that probably is still the big picture. We're so fixated on incremental changes (ie the fact that Japan used to be massively more like this than it is now) that we fail to see that this is basically still the general situation there.
