Why is Japan the source of so many bright ideas?

I didn't realize that Japan holds more patents per person than any other country, in fact nearly 4 times more then the US, which is third in the world with 350 patents per million persons. Switzerland is 2nd with 500 per million. Japanese people have 1200 patents per million. This Economist article explores this phenomena.
