Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe - A Man with a Plan

Nationalism is on the rise in Japan with opinion polls predicting a landslide election victory for the Liberal Democrat Party.

“We are fighting to bring back a Japan that can grow again, a Japan that will rebuild, and a Japan that is prepared to protect its territory,” Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe said on Friday at a rally in Mie, in central Japan.
However a nationalistic policy, rather than international policy, translates into a stronger military and would likely increase tense relations with Japan’s neighbours: China and South Korea.
