Check this site for answers to your first question.
Japan is an economic success because of a well-educated workforce, enormous amounts of economic help after WW II, a tradition of hard work and loyalty to employers, democracy forced on it by the victorious Allies.

When they got through it looked like they knew everything about that product. They were very careful and clever so I was never surprised when they came out with something as good as, if not better!
