Japan's young generation seems to be not only better equipped for globalization, but also more independent-minded and bias-free in revaluating Japanese culture including traditional practices. If young people are better educated in school and better trained in their community and society, Japan will be able to co-exist with countries like Canada and prosper in the age of information and globalization. Dating culture, clothing, and music – all factors of societal globalization that have been internalized by Japan, especially the youth. Indeed, it seems as though the Japanese community has learned to interact with Canadian lifestyles while maintaining important social and cultural values. .
