While not related to wooddorking or tools, this article may be interesting to you. It's about why electronic gadgetry is so much more advanced in Japan than in North America, and one reason cited was exactly what Ian stated: Wal-Mart, low prices, and "cost and value", as the article puts it: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/g/archive/2004/12/09/gadgetgap.DTL&type=printable

A point they make is that in Japan the market is driven by teenagers. That implies that teenagers are either horribly overindulged by Japanese parents or that Japanese teenagers have the ability earn a decent income. Now, given that it is perfectly legal for a Japanese girl to engage in prostitution at 13 (remember when that story surfaced?), perhaps the real difference is that we treat teenagers as children and they don't?
