"The key for the Japan economically success was education. Their education system played a major role in enabling the country to meet the challenges presented by the need to quickly understand Western ideas, science, and technology. Japan has one of the highest standards of education and one of the highest literacy rates in the world. About 93% of children enter high school, and nearly all of them graduate. At over 40% in 2000, Japan also has one of the highest university enrolment rates in the developed world, and a huge number of state and private universities to serve the population."
