    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.


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