The Japanese engineers make mistakes. Honda made mistakes. Sony made mistakes. But they learned and thrived. In the same vein, Japan has spent billions of dollars developing the most advanced technology against earthquakes and tsunamis. If a structure can be saved, Japan has developed the know-how to do it.
Many Japanese companies (including those in the electronics, automotive and heavy manufacturing industries) are open to hiring foreign engineers. There are a great number of engineering jobs in Japan — it’s not a function most Japanese companies are willing to offshore.
