    Those two are the same meaning. In this case, the first phrase 日本"の" and 日本"は" are exchangeable.
    ex: イタリアの たべものは おいしいです。
    イタリアは たべものが おいしいです。

    Another ex: フランスの けしきは きれいです。
    フランスは けしきが きれいです。

    Just don't forget to change 物価"は" and 物価"が" as well.

    ほぼ同じだと思います。

    Literally, the first sentence means "Japan's commodity prices are high." and the second is " In Japan, commodity prices are high." Both are interchaneable.
