I guess they will be a bit concerned about the purges and political-war crime trials, after the Communist Party of China is overthrown. The clock is ticking. The final day and hour of the tyrant is set, marked, unknown but certain.

I agree that the article reads more like an editorial.
Writing from here in Kyoto, I am quite aware of the trepidation of official Japan. But as someone who continues to be involved in the political side, having worked actively on behalf of Pres Reagan some 35 years ago in various capacities, and having voted for DJT via absentee ballot, I truly believe that the solid relationship between our two nations will grow much stronger, in a much more thoughtful and nature way. From my work in my home base of NYC I came to know some key people in DJT's campaign; and going forward, I think that there will be a rebalancing of responsibilities between our militaries. Japan can and should stand tall, while knowing that on all the most important security matters, maritime issues and self protection, the United States will always have Japans back. Its not a top down relationship. Its one of mature brothers and sisters. Realize that.
While the perception that TPP has been just one more entangled multilateral mess that the US needs no part of, fair and sound business agreements one to one, will gain traction. I do thin it is the false assumption by the PRC that their relationship will be "business as usual" is delusional. The Japan-US Partnership will grow even stronger. Two democracies, two real friends. The doubts will vanish like last months campaign battles, to dust will settle and the sun will rise, and shine. There is much reason for optimism. Truth.

A few unfortunate remarks here (probably not from a US citizen). I wish them both the best of luck and trust that there will be an excellent relationship.
Long live US-Japan Friendship, Respect, Freedom, Security and Mutual Success!
I voted for DJT from here in Kyoto, and worked for President Reagan 35 years ago. I have also prayed at Yasukuni shrine.
Not interested in vitriol. Only good and positive intentions, true leadership. Thank you, Abe-san for visiting NY and the President-elect.

Hope she remains safe nonetheless, from the loose nuts out there.

The Emperor does not need to be at all concerned, as he has no duty to entertain foreign wack jobs.
Let MOFA bureaucrats provide Duterte some gum, a manga magazine and a book on etiquette. Otherwise it will certainly end badly, so why add a single ounce of stress to the emminently respected Emperors twilight years? No benefit at all.

About a decade ago I was at the shrine on August 15th, a couple days before my birthday. It was hot out, lots of people, some military ware, pomp but historical, and religious observations. I went to the front altar and paid my respects. I knew the act would be deemed offensive by communists in mainland china and that in itself was so odd, coming from an ideology that is responsible for untold millions of lives taken through violence, depravity and starvation. Warped. I said a prayer for the deceased, but then why would an atheistic communist be upset about prayer? To some deity or spiritual realm that they say does not exist. Well. I will return and be respectful. Honor thy ancestors.

This is why I will never set foot in the PRC.
I have been politically involved in the US and love freedom, respect human rights, and have spoken up about it. Who would ever put their life at risk of being a fly where the dictatorship is a huge flyswatter. Nope. Never. Until the regime is put 6 feet under.
Same goes for Japanese citizens thinking of visiting the PRC; why be a pawn in a rigged game, when its time for the regime to whip up some anti Japanese hatred. Nope. Guam is safer for a little vacation.
