Is Kaizen Second Nature?

As a high school student, I was fortunate enough to experience a one-year exchange program to Kumamoto, Japan. During the course of the year, I lived with a number of Japanese host families. I have managed to remain in touch with them over the years and visit them every so often when I travel to Japan. Since one of my host fathers retired a number of years ago, I noticed that his city home and mountain shack were starting to become quite visual.
