Categories: East Asia, France, Japan, Arts & Culture, Citizen Media, Ideas, Literature, Media & Journalism

Interest for Japan is at its peak among readers in France [1] [fr] despite the Asian nation's gloomy economic outlook. Therefore, French Magazine ZoomJapan [2] [fr] has featured 50 Japanese [3] people that are transforming the archipelago; from architect Kyohei Sakaguchi [4]―who established what he calls “independent government”―, to dancers, activists, business entrepreneurs, and journalists. The compilation is available online in French, Japanese and in English [3].
