The term used in Japan
to descibe the period in the 1980
s when the Japanese economy
was considered a wonder of the modern world.
The well documented excesses of most western economies in the '80s were put to shame by the conspicuous consumption of the newly mega-rich Japanese people, especially those in real estate and the stock market.
Today, rich or opulent venues or surroundings in urban Japan are often referred-to as being remeniscent of the Bubble Economy.
