China’s efforts to intimidate Japan into submission have seen such trust of China as there is amongst the Japanese collapse, with as many as 90% of Japanese surveyed saying China cannot be trusted.

The latest surveys of public opinion indicate China’s recent efforts to seize the Senkaku Islands have had the unsurprising effect of substantially hardening public opinion against China – 87% of Japanese men in their twenties now agree “China cannot be trusted,” up from 80%.

Women are just as suspicious of Chinese intentions – 91.8% of women in their forties, the highest, also feel China cannot be trusted, and even amongst women in their twenties 84% agree.

The results also indicate Japanese are becoming concerned by their weakness, especially the younger generations – as many as 94.2% of Japanese men in their twenties now agree that “Japan’s image as a being a nation that will succumb to pressure is a concern.”

Amongst Japanese, concern about China’s aggression also appears to be crystallising into concern about the current pro-Chinese stance of their own government.

The latest incident, in which senior government figures made the highly suspect blunder of referring to the presence of Chinese ships in the area with the honorifics usually reserved for dignitaries, convinced many that the Democratic party’s worshipful attitude to China is incorrigible – now over 90% of men in their thirties agree that the government’s foreign policy is “spineless.”

Across all the generations, the incident has caused many to think their “alliance” with the USA must be strengthened; 39.1% think the alliance should be strengthened, whilst 41.9% consider the status quo adequate. Most support is concentrated amongst younger generations of men – 48.9% and 46.4% of men in their thirties and twenties want a stronger alliance.

Younger generations were particularly likely to admit the importance of relations with China – 95.7% of men in their twenties and 92% of women in their thirties agreed China “is important to Japan’s economy,” displaying a surprising amount of awareness of just who their largest trading partner is.

Where the regions are concerned, the most concerned were the inhabitants of Kyushu, closest to China and the Senkaku Islands. 51.3% agreed that “troops should be stationed on the Senkaku Islands,” higher than anywhere else. 76.1% agreed that “China is a nation which threatens the safety of Japan” and 81.4% that “the issue will continue to poison relations between China and Japan.”

With public opinion now firmly against China, it seems the only thing sustaining Japan’s supine position with regards to China is the Democratic Party of Japan’s substantial Sinophile wing and the short-sighted desperation of the extremely powerful Keidanren (Japan Business Federation) to protect their Chinese investments – one of the few Japanese organisations left which unreservedly supports the appeasement of China.

    If China does start a war and it stays conventional they'll get their asses handed to them as the US,India, and the UK would all send their navies to help.
    Zerg rush tactics do not work over oceans heck they don't even work over land any more because of this little thing called air superiority.
    I don't fear their conventional forces as both gulf wars showed what happens to large quantity low quality forces when they face the US military.
    They get exterminated in just days.
    The one thing that China has that I do fear is their ICBMs.
    The US has ten times more nukes but China still has enough to take out a few major cites and shut down the world economy.
    But I don't think they'd want a nuclear war even if their invasion force got sent to the bottom of the Pacific.

    lol united states/allied forces clearly had better weapons and whatever in Korean War and Vietnam War. They never actually "won."

    The number of troops in Gulf War is nothing compare to Kor/Viet war.

    What did carpet bombing achieve in Vietnam? is that what you call air superiority?

    they never actually tried

    Hell, America didn't even really try in WW2. Their draft was partial and they got into the war late and still dominated it.

    Stealth fighters? You actually believe the PR stunts about stealth fighters?

    You disappoint me so, so much.

    It is true China spends much more than their official budget, but trust me, not even Russia has stealth fighters. Russia has fighters with RCS-reductive features, but not stealth.

    Low quality soldiers? Have you ever been in the army to know how training is like? I'm not siding China, but their military spendings are way high, and their soldier trainings are harsh. Perhaps you can go take a few photos and show us that China's soldiers are of low quality...at the cost of being an additional hostage? )

    Do you realize just how much MORE the US spends militarily every year than China does? Not to mention that the US military has far fewer members (drawing from a smaller population base), so a much larger amount would be spent on each even if spending were entirely equal. So yes, in comparison to the equipment used by the US military, China's is in general of a notably lower quality.

    The auhtor just show the percent of Japanese who agree the title's idea to us only,but he/she does not provide the exact numuber of respondant,maybe the number is hundred or ten.Therefore,the result of the survey could not present the opinion of entire Japanese,so the author's conclusion can not be demostrated by the survey.And the viewpoint of this writing can not be convinced.
    This writing can not show us the real fact of this issue,it just wants to convice us the almost entire Japanese don't trust China,actually,it wants to mislead readers

    That's not it! THEY DON'T WANT the BASE in OKINAWA, not that "Americans being around". Seriously, Japan has no military of it's own because of America's promise to protect them. How will it stand to an attack from China? Hence the so-called "hypocrisy of Japan".

    Wow, if there is a war, all the prices for most major brand will jump. Not many people will be buying things. America will be in recession again.

    This time, China isn't going to buy USA's bond.

    USA will be devastated. The whole world will be devastated.

    I'm an overseas Chinese who speaks Japanese (and almost no mandarin), and I am staunchly pro Japan. I teach some fobby kids from China English. Guess what, they love Japan, Gundams, Ayumi and Pokemon. I hope the Japanese learn to accept the new generation of us for who we really are and not based on the deplorable policies of a quasi-communist government. When I visit Japan, they always treat me as nihonjin. Yeah, they can't really tell the difference either.

    I agree, although China and Japan have completely different cultures, can't they all just get along? They're all Asians! Share ideas and work together. I know that's a naive thought, but it's better than conflict and resentment.

    Largest does not equal best. Massive numbers of poorly equipped ground forces don't do much in today's world. But you are right in that it isn't likely that ANY known nuclear powers will engage any of their peers in a full-scale war, at least until some sort of real missile countermeasure is deployed (something that, at least in terms of anti-ICBM usage, is likely at least another 15 years away, if not far more).

    China and North Korea vs Japan, South Korea, United States, EU, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Australia, India, Israel and many others that aren't on the top of my head right now.

    You really wanna put your money on China?

    Japan and the United States are sisters. The United States leads NATO, and has numerous other powerful alliances as well. If China were to attack Japan, the chain of alliances would bring nearly the entire military force of the world down on Chinas head. It's just not going to happen. They can't be that stupid.

    I think that most of the world believe that china (as a country) can't be trusted. I don't mean to offend Chinese people who thrive to live a petty life, but china is a superpower with a kind of dictatorship. Human right don't really apply there, and if they were to decide to go on war well things would go pretty bad.

    China is nothing but a self destructing parasite. It feeds of his own people and sucks them off until they die. Think about how they will treat you after seeing how they treat their own people. And Americans should shut up. Your as spineless as the Japanese. You only start war against countries with nothing more then some wooden sticks and kill 10 times more children and women as terrorists or enemy soldiers. China should fight America. If we are lucky both die a painfull death and the rest of the world lives a peacefull life.

    If you want to comment on the issue, look up the history of the island first.
    The island ORIGINALLY belonged to China, Japan, like the rest of the exploitive nations of that age. Started the first sino-japanese war and won the island. Then after world war II they were supposed to return the island, but pussied out and America being their victor backed them up.
    Now Japan has arrested the fisherman for NO reason as it is disputed sea and arresting another countries citizen there is as good as kidnapping.
    I dont know what garbage your media has fed you but if you think about it logically, this entire incident was started by Japan in an effort to seize territory that was never hers to begin with.

    You are treating people and country as one and the same. People who generalize like you can be perceived as racist because you generalize about the will of the Japanese people and government. Also, you base your accusations on past generations of Japanese. It's like basing all of Americans on the overweight ones or on the civil war or on the racism that this country has suffered. You are an idiot because you generalize. However, the Japanese government is generalizing about the Chinese government and vice versa. All governments do that! Attacking the people in general is idiotic and racist. I am not one to throw around the word racist often so I'm very serious.

    I can think of a solution to Japan's lack of balls: Japan should be allowed to have an army again! After WWII, Japan is forbidden to have a standing army or wage war with other nations according to Article 9 of its constitution. It has the Jieitai, which is one of the world's most technologically advanced armed forces, but it's more for non-combat missions.

    If Japan is allowed to fight back, then it can put its foot down.
