ASEAN is generally awesome. I find myself rooting for their success. They need to always be careful to keep EVERY major outside power at bay to some degree. (Especially China and the USA, but also the EU and Japan.)

How about Japan stop educating Myanmar officers at their National Defense academy in Kanagawa?

Whatever Japan is scheming will be short-lived. Japan has been trying to get out of American orbit by secretly funding either anti-American regimes or Non-aligned states for years.

The US found out about Kakuei Tanaka's schemes with China, so the CIA released info on Tanaka's corruption to purge him. Shinzo Abe was assassinated by an anti-UC person but Abe tried to achieve detente with Russia, briefly cancel Aegis Ashore, and slam President Zelenskyy of Ukraine; thus, this made him also a possible target of a hypothetical American assassination.

In the coming years, the Kishida administration will definitely get out of line as the Abe administration did. The US will destroy his regime as usual, and nothing in Japan will be done.

They got oil.

Pretty much the whole scheme behind why Japan is simping so hard for ASEAN, especially with Vietnam. The South China Sea coasts in Vietnam's EEZ secretly have the richest reserves of oil and gas in the world.

Aside from energy, Japan also wants cheap, competent, hard-working labor from ASEAN, not useless Japanese old people.
