I'm Not There (1956) (1823304) writes "Jeffrey Zeldman brings up the interesting issue of paradox between Japan's strong background in simplicity and complexity of Japanese websites. The post invites you to see http://www.mhlw.go.jp/ and a few other websites, which all are as crowded as it can get. "It is odd that in Japan, land of world-leading minimalism in the traditional arts and design, web users and skilled web design practitioners believe more is more.""
