Funny that the Chinese can only trust the Komei Party, the Soka Gakkai all thanks to President Daisaku Ikeda, while crazies like Shintaro Ishihara and Abe Jr would like to start a war or something terrible like that with China and South Korea.

Elbuda,is easy to understand why Soka Gakkai led by Daisaku Ikeda has strong connection with china and korea. I Don't understand why he does not use his real name. (Son tae chuk)

Suggesting Abe wants a war with China is absolute rubbish.

Peace between China and Japan is a nightmare for U.S.A.

The Nikkei (日経新聞) is reporting that Chiense microblogers are going crazy about the "deep bow" that Yamaguchi made before Xi. Japan is realizing its inferior status to the great China.

That's a great picture. The background painting really seems to fit the relationship.

Yes, China has rather erected a wall between itself and Japan. The question is, when will it tear it down?

Then they're idiots.

Japan is realizing its inferior status to the great China.

Just like when Obama bowed low to the Emperor a few years ago?

Issa, so who is SON TAE CHUK?? This must be some off the wall Japanese Right Wing propaganda BS trying to claim that Mr.Daisaku Ikeda is NOT Japanese?? Sorry, trying spreading that right wing bs on 2 ch but not here, ok? Mr.Ikeda has fought for peace and friendship not only with China but also with Russia, and yes even the USA, the same country that bombed the hell out of Japan with atomic bombs,so as John Lennon put it very poetically, GIVE PEACE A CHANCE!

Abe is a peace lover?? Hahaha, Abe is old school, you know, kind of like ISHIHARA, the only reason he is asking for help from Mr.Yamaguchi, the Komei Party, is because they know that the Chinese government can only trust Mr.Ikeda, the honorary leader of the Soka Gakkai, in my humble opinion.

Coming in the wake of the Hatoyama visit I hope that this points to some actual motion toward a productive solution.

Suppose Japan can surrender and become a tributary member of China like the old days. The Ryukyu Kingdom could be restored under the same plan. Then Mainland China would have nothing in its way to the Pacific Ocean.

I have yet to read any articles suggesting that the Japanese PM or the former mayor of Tokyo (as if he had any power) want to start a war. However the following are just a few of the articles indicating that it is only China that is openly talking about starting a war.
