Notes[edit]

  1. Japan's constitutional amendment is led by right-wing populists and right-wing nationalists in Japan. Japan's right-wing to far-rightist are trying to revise Article 2 of the Japanese constitution. Article 2 of the Constitution of Japan has 'the renunciation of war'. Japan was a defeated country during World War II and committed war crimes similar to Nazi Germany.(ex. Comfort women, Rape of Nanjing, Unit 731)
  2. However, he is negative about relations with China and North Korea because he is an moderate anti-communist. (Japan's conservatives, who came to power in the 21st century, have very bad relations with South Korea because they have abandoned anti-Communism and are showing a tendency toward ultra-nationalism.)
