    • I don’t think militarism is forever inherent in Japanese culture. Japanese culture changes constantly, like cultures in other countries.

      That the LDP is back in government is not really because of mass enthusiasm for the militarism of its leaders like Shinzo Abe. Shinzo Abe resigned a few years ago in disgrace. If people will again get disappointed in him (like, eg, on nuclear power, or war), he may have to resign again.

      He is back now because of disappointment in the recent DPJ government. The DPJ had promised to close down the US military base in Okinawa and to improve the economy. They did not keep those promises. And then came the Fukushima disaster and the government’s mishandling of it.
