Like most national space programs, Japan didn't lack good ideas.  What they lacked was top-level decision making to go for the right idea and the ability to do it for a reasonable cost.
From my impression, this is exactly what Japanese spaceflight fans have been lamenting for years.
There's also the Lost Decade, which forced the Japanese space program to abandon many of its future development projects.
