Just want to share what I read since I surf around comparing the style of postgraduate studies across different developed nations. I dropped to this ACM page
And somehow looking at the writings it seems that the concentration of study in Japan is the best on hardware computing but seems not for the "soft computing"
It is interesting to see that none of these milestones is attributable to a Japanese computer scientist. I quizzed a number of academics about this, and found there is really no curriculum content particular to CS courses in Japan. Although the Japanese are world leaders in electronics, they have a tendency to follow rather than lead when it comes to software technology.But instead of being called as "follower", how's Japan performed compared to UK? Or the other European countries?
