Japan Rising


Japan Rising

The most recent Gallup rating shows that a slight majority of Americans believes that Japan is “the most important US partner in the Asian region.”  Is this improvement tied to post-3/11 “Gratitude Relations” between Japan and the world? I think so.  Out of the worst calamity and disaster since WWII, Japan has improved its soft power image through domestic unification and global gratitude.

How might the Noda government tap into this US-Japan goodwill?

  1. I think Japan is doing a very good job cooperating and honestly asking for help from foreign powers. This would have been impossible probably 50-60 years ago. The idea of nationalism and patriotism might slightly be fading gradually, yet Japan is still rising in a global scale and keeping its traditions alive.

  2. Would like to say your own article is really as amazing. The actual clarity inside your post is simply nice and i’m able to assume you happen to be an expert on this subject. Nicely with your approval allow me to get your nourish to keep up to date with future post. Cheers a million along with please keep on the satisfying work.

  3. I think now this improvement of ratings has to do with the mental power and spirit of Japanese people which clearly appeared after 3.11, rather than with the economy or politics. Now the Japanese people need a leader who has strong mental powers and leads us powerfully to recover from the disaster. I hope Mr. Noda focuses on these things and communicates more with Japanese citizens and of course, the US government.

  4. I must say Japan had done a very good job to cooperate with the foreign countries when 3.11 happened. We all know by now that Japan is not the best country to conduct foreign diplomacy. However, the Noda government had managed the situation very precisely. He engaged the foreign countries to invest as much help as we needed. Thus, it appears to me that 3.11 made a huge change, both politically and the country itself. If Japan is more likeable than China for America, our country can change a great deal. America is the country where all the people start to be influenced. In that case, America can represent Japan to the world and make many tourists come and knock down our recession and contribute to the 3.11. (Hey, Tokyo Sky Tree is here! We all can expect something bright in the future. Be optimistic.)
