Essay

 I think there is one major cause for the recent popularity in Japan of learning Asian languages and culture and this is a great thing for two reasons.
 When it comes to the causes for this trend, the major cause is China’s economic growth. In the recent decades, China has improved its economy dramatically, so that it has become one of the most important countries in the world. Moreover, China holds the key to how to develop an environmentally sustainable economic model. If it succeeds, it will set a great example for all other countries. Therefore, it is attracting people’s attention in Japan.
 As for why I think this is a great trend, the first reason is that it will contribute to world peace. If all the Asian countries stick together and cooperate to make the world a better place, it will have significant impact on world peace.
 The second reason is that it is good for world economy. Since Asian countries like Japan and China and India, have a big economic power, mutual understanding and cooperation between those Asian countries bolster world economy.
 As I mentioned above, there is the aforementioned one major cause for this trend and this is a great thing for the aforementioned two reasons.
