Wikipedia includes all texts from the US Library of Congress: Country Studies Japan [1] (Public Domain) website. While the texts are of good quality, they were written around 1992, so some of the information is outdated. Since the Japanese asset price bubble collapsed in 1993, especially the articles on Economy need a review. See #List of recent events. You can help wikipedia by updating these articles.
