anybody going to put forward a reason why tax money should be used to support this industry?

Yes, the majority of Japanese support this.   Japanese don't like emotional, unlogical, unreasonable, unfair demands from outside.

What sense does it make for central govt to set prices?

The industries of strong public nature need government permission to change prices.  In US, the rent is controlled by the government, at least for the apts I lived in.

China learned something from Japan in recent 200 years.

China did not exist 200 years ago.  It started after people who came from the area came to Japan to study everything from Japan including Kanji (70 % of Kanji Chinese use now are Made in Japan).  Even their coutry name Communist is Japanese made Kanji.

America were terrified of a communist Japan so they kept the right wing in Japan very strong.

Japan was a democratic country.  US government was at that time controled by Soviet communists spies.

US (GHQ) burned lots of Japan's democratic books after the war, but none of communists' books.

Posted in: Japan marks 72nd anniversary of its surrender in WWII See in context

Maybe time to mark it as the anniversary of the "end of the war" instead of the "country's surrender".

It IS the anniversary of the "end of the war", Shusen Kinenbi in Japanese. 

If it was Japan who won the war, Japan would treat the war loser with respect.

Japan and it's extreme lack of confidence in itself, always comparing itself, its people, and even landmarks to those of Western nations.
