(History of the Pacific Rim - Japan) - Japan and the US: Not Getting Along?

Record 20% of Japanese say U.S.-Japan relations not good

This article, found on a Japanese news site called Asahi, talks about the results of a recent poll about the perceived relationship between Japan and the US, as well as with South Korea and China. The poll indicated that the Japanese/US relationship was viewed less as what it should be. The percentage of Japanese that feel this way is at a record high for the country. However, it's amazing that the record is only %20. Ever since the Reconstruction of Japan following World War II, Japan has always been highly receptive to the US. Even in it's record low of confidence, the number is only %20. Were it a school grade, it'd still be considered a B-. Some students would love a grade like that. :P I'm curious to see whether or not that number will rise or fall in the next couple years. The article didn't really go into detail about why, but it did mention that, while Japan/US relations were going down, relations between Japan and South Korea, as well as with China, were improving. However, the percentages are still way off from Japan/US relations. 50% believe relations with South Korea are good and 26% believe relations with China are good. Those are a far cry from the 80% of Japan/US relations.
