Tokyo: Economic growth
Tokyo rapidly reindustrialized. With the country's drastic increase in imports and exports, Tokyo acted as a major trade hub.
Japan had few natural resources but imported large amounts of raw materials to manufacture finished goods. The profits from the manufacturing output were reinvested into better equipment and technological research, boosting production and profits. The United States government also removed trade barriers on Japanese goods, ensuring that Japanese entrepreneurs could freely sell their goods in the US and elsewhere.
