I doubt folks in Japan pays any attention to Fitch and its ilk - remember these geniuses rated toxic mortgage backed securities as risk-free triple A.

Also corporate Japan is sitting on a 2.8 trillion USD cash pile - they don't need the foreign capital. There's a lot of doom and gloom about Japanese electronic companies, but most companies in Japan have extremely strong balance sheets.

(b) japanese companies somehow dont want foreign investment ( why the japanese solution for oly ? ), those companies and the japanese banks are somehow a closed system, so the fitch status does not matter much to them. and this way they make wonderful cameras.
