Response to Hey Thian, I've read that there is growing anti-American
So during the recent elections that was an issue. The last PM stepped down cuz he had promised to solve it but he waivered too much and felt he should do the right thing and stepped down! ONLY IN JAPAN haha!
But, a recent naval incident over a few stupid small islands, claimed by China, Taiwan and Japan, caused friction between China and tiny Japan. a Chinese fishing boat was being tracked by 2 Japanese naval small vessels, and the Chinese captain skidded into one of the Japanese vessels and side swiped it! It was videotaped by the crew!
China demanded release of the captain and crew! China, in relatiation, house arrested 4 Japanese workers in China! (which Japan did). World sentiment thought Japan chickened out.
SO, now you see why the new Japan government wants to refresh and renew US ties for defense reasons!!!! Hillary Clinton is pro Japanese and shows the USA to willingly back up Japan, of course to keep its sphere of influence in the Pacific intact.
To add to this situation, Russia now just visited a northern island, claimed by Japan! Seems Russia wants to exert its own influence, capitalizing on the China/japan one!!!
