I would recommend Alex Kerr's 'Dogs and Demons' book about Japan. It is kind of old (2001) but it is still a great read about what have been some of the specific problems from Japan these past decades.

I've always wondered why everyone recommends that book. In the English-teacher community in Japan it's like the sacred text for those who want to complain about Japan. ;)
