Formation of Japanese nation in history has taken more than one thousand years. It was a long and a complicated process that can literally be imagined as a set of little streams coming together into a single powerful stream. When getting acquainted with Japanese, their behavior, character and perception of reality, foreigners can get a complex range of impressions about it from surprise to delight.
One of the most interesting and very cautionary features of the Japanese behavior is their ability to spend money properly or economically, rationally allocate their income. Japanese people are taught since childhood how to form and gradually improve their skills in a reasonable allocation of the family budget. Japanese always have enough money, they rarely complain about its shortage. The key to this well-being is not only in the ability to properly allocate money, but in the skills to accurately analyze their needs, make intelligent decisions about the necessity of certain expenses. It can even be said that Japanese in their art of economy and wise spending of money far outscored the other nations of the world.
