Why should Japan not follow Germany's outstanding example?

I as a postwar German am REALLY thankful that out neighbor countries gave us a new chance and accepted the apologies (and compensation money probably...).

Living near the border to France I can say that this border nearly has vanished. Who would have thought of this 70 years ago? This was only possible because France (and Poland, and...) actively took part in normalizing the relationship. And this is what I want to stress here: It takes both sides. One side has to sincerely apologize and the other side has to accept this by heart.

But it is definitely worth the effort for both sides. Living in a peaceful and understanding manner (while accepting cultural differences) with your neighbors is invaluable. Hope that one day Japan and South Korea will come to the same conclusion...
