We are talking about how we can open the bright future that we define as “the golden age” from 2020 to 2037 opening to hold 2020 Olympic in Tokyo. It is a great opportunity for our economy, development, and encountering so many foreigners.
Recently we can see so many foreigners comparing to before but Japan is still closed. I hope through this opportunity Japan will open more and be back on the growth track again. Hopefully Japan can get the number two in economic position taken by China. Because not only Japan but also other countries like Taiwan, Vietnam, Philippines and other countries close to China, these countries are threatened by the power of China. Indeed, North Korea is also pain in a neck, but it is much less than one from China. If the speed of economical growth of China is the same as now, in a couple decades China will become a great threat even for the US. That is a very critical situation for not only Asian countries but also whole world. Because China is politically one party dominates the country, Xi Jinping will hold his power almost forever. Moreover, their military power and technology have been growing rapidly and expanding their territory by using their force.
Conversely Japanese power and speed of economy is still dull. So Tokyo Olympic 2020 as one of springboard, we would like to make concrete progress again. In order to realize it Japan has to get rid of a masochistic view planted by the loss of WWII. It still prevails throughout the people’s mind.
Japan is the only country and oldest country that has the history continues over two thousand six hundred years succeeded by emperors. The USA is a dream country. So I want to keep its power also. We don’t want to see that USA and China compete each other like it happened before democratic country vs. communist country. Japan must regain its power and cooperate with the USA in order to keep the world peace. That’s I wish.
