"Japan has developed a full range of admired cultural resources, from the Japanese sense of beauty appreciated since the mid-19th century by foreigners such as Lafcadio Hearn and Bruno Taut to today's movies and anime," it said.

"These cultural assets are now considered a part of Japan's strength, as is evident from the expression now being bandied about, 'Japan's Gross National Cool'."
