Fewer cars in Japan

Isis (Floating Down Denial), a blogger I check daily, notes that the number of passenger cars owned per household in Japan fell in fiscal 2006 for the first time since records started in 1975, sinking to 1.107 per household. The number of private cars owned by households came to 57.24 million as of March 31. In Tokyo the rate of car ownership is only about 0.52 - that means only about half of households own a car.

660 cc cars make up the largest new car market segment in Japan.

Glad you found the information of interest and thank you for the link! I may have bitten off more than I can chew with my "mission statement", but I try.
