Export of Japanese pop culture to foreign countries

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 Nowadays Japanese pop culture like cartoon movies, comics, music, etc, is becoming more and more popular in foreign countries and I think this trend is a great boon for Japan.
 Firstly, it boosts Japan’s economy. In general, the larger a market becomes, the more profit it generates. Therefore the increase in the number of people who are interested in Japanese pop culture has a good influence on the economy.
 Secondly, the number of tourists to Japan increases. The more aggressive introduction of Japanese pop culture into foreign countries augments the number of tourists. Since tourism is one of the most significant industries in Japan and there are eight million foreign visitors each year, the furtherance of tourism is a real benefit.
 Finally, it facilitates mutual understanding between foreign countries and Japan. Learning about a country’s culture is tantamount to learning about the country. The increase in the number of people who are familiar with Japanese culture develops amicable relations with foreign countries.
 As I mentioned, for the aforesaid three reasons, I think export of Japanese pop culture to foreign countries is a great advantage for Japan.
