Company and  Opinion

I feel that Japan has a successful economy because, their GDP is top 3 in the world, and individual people are successful themselves. A company in Japan is Nintendo Co. Nintendo Co. makes games devices and games like Super Smash Bros 4 3DS, and like the WII U, etc. Japan can ride less cars to reduce the air pollution and a lot more to help improve their economy.
