    This study examines Japanese reactions to neighboring countries' behavior by addressing possible micro-motives, such as patriotism, the rational demand for national defense, and retrospective policy evaluation. This theoretical development leads to distinctive hypotheses from different motivations and directly tests them using macrodata (not survey data). This research will apply this framework to Japanese politics and will show that foreign threats stimulate patriotism in the public mind and enhance political support for national leaders. It will also demonstrate that the Japanese public has no optimistic view of the new prime minister and that the honeymoon effect in previous research may be confounded with the patriotic effect because the new leader is less experienced and is often challenged by foreign countries.

  • External threats, US bases, and prudent voters in Okinawa Reviewed

    A number of US overseas bases were deployed around the world to protect allies and maintain regional peace. Some bases have been stationed in the partner countries for the long term, whereas others were withdrawn from their partners' territories in the face of strong local opposition. Understanding local support for US overseas bases is indispensable for managing alliance politics and pursuing US grand strategy. This article addresses the 1972-2006 Okinawa gubernatorial elections where the US base issue had been chronically politicized and locals supported pro-base candidates six out of ten times contrary to their anti-base preferences. This article addresses external threats as a determinant of vote choice. We analyze the gubernatorial elections as the opportunities for Okinawans to convey their support for or opposition to the current national security policy since US bases in Okinawa are critical to Japan's security. We find that external threats do encourage Okinawans to support pro-base candidates, but the effect of perceived security-related risks is moderate. Moreover, physical and psychological costs such as airplane crashes, environmental and noise pollution, and rape incidents have larger influence on the election outcomes rather than material benefits such as the fiscal transfers and base-related subsidies, which is contrary to the conventional view.

  • Democracy and diversionary incentives in Japan-South Korea disputes Reviewed

    Since its democratization, South Korea's foreign relations with Japan have become increasingly volatile. We investigate the diversionary incentives behind these fluctuations in South Korean foreign policy during 1988-2011. We show evidence that, similar to mature democracies, economic turmoil is driving Korean leaders to divert the public attention toward low-intensity disputes against Japan. However, unlike mature democracies, our results reveal that public approval ratings and national elections do not encourage leaders to engage in the diversionary behavior due to South Korean domestic political institutional settings and party system. These findings highlight challenges to foreign policy making in a new democracy, an issue that has not been considered in detail in the literature. We conclude that although historical antagonism and US commitment to East Asia may affect the Japan-South Korea relationship, economic diversionary incentives significantly determine the fluctuations in Japan-South Korea disputes.

    U.S. overseas troops have been stationed in American allies to secure the local balance of power favoring allies in a military confrontation. Such an expectation would deter challenges from potential adversaries. People believe that the maintenance of U.S. stationed troops is indispensable for securing American allies. However, the U.S. has been reducing the size of U.S. overseas troops since the end of World War II. The reduction of U.S. overseas troops does not always lead to deterrence failure. Why is that?
    The answer is that the U.S. can send a credible signal of its resolve to protect allies through its budgetary decisions. Given the size of the reduction in the federal budget due to economic difficulties, the U.S. can convey its resolve to protect a specific ally by maintaining or marginally reducing the budget for stationed troops in this ally.

    Our studies examined how political and economic events shape the approval ratings in Japan. We addressed both foreign and domestic events. Events have a variety of effects that are constant over different periods of time. Not only events but also news reports shape the Japanese public opinion. News reports on North Korea and South Korea shape the Japanese public’s affinities to those countries, while economic news reports change the Japanese cabinet approval ratings. Finally, the probability of cabinet approval converges at the individual level because the longer tenure of the cabinet leads to the spread of information.
