The US sent gunboats in 1853/4 to force Japan to open up to its business interests.
September 11, 2001
Hiroshi Hasegawa was a well-known Japanese journalist and "terror expert", who worked for NHK. He was circumspect about the US government's official narrative and encouraged his listeners not to uncritically accept the story of the 19 hijackers. He was found dead on 15 October 2001, a death which was only lightly reported at the time by NHK and other corporate media in Japan.
21st Century developments
After the events of 9/11, particularly under Shinzo Abe, Japan has been following the global "war on terror" program of increased mass surveillance, and increased penalties for exercising freedom of speech on topics not approved of by government.
Japan collects foreigners' fingerprints when they enter the country. In 2016, it announced plans to tie fingerprints to credit cards and passports, requiring foreigners to show them in hotels and when making other purchases.
In June 2014, Japan's ruling coalition adopted a resolution that — for the first time since World War II — would clear the way to the Japanese armed forces to defend the country’s allies in combat. Shinzo Abe justified this with refernce to the "increasingly severe" security situation, and insisted that this was a defensive measure and that "There is absolutely no chance that Japan becomes a nation that wages war." In May 2015, activists across Japan, including a group of around 500 people in front of the Prime Minister's office protested what they called the destruction of the Constitution's war-renouncing Article 9, as the cabinet was discussing this legislation.
Control of intelligence agencies
In March 2015, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced a plan to recreate Japan's intelligence agencies, using the UK's MI6 as a model. The Intelligence agencies were dismantled by the Allies after World War II. The rebuilding announcement follows territorial tensions with China and the be-headings of two Japanese hostages in the Middle East.
Japanese culture traditionally emphasises obedience, hindering public protest. However, in May 2015, over 1000 people sued the Japanese government to halt involvement in TPP. In 2017, thousands protested mass surveillance that Shinzo Abe said was needed to fight "terrorism" .
On 22 April 2015, a drone with traces of radiation was landed on top of Abe's office, carrying a camera and a small bottle with the radioactive symbol. Tests found it was carrying a small amount of radioactive caesium, reported. Abe was in Indonesia at the time, attending an Asian-African conference.
On 24th April, radioactive contamination was discovered in a park in Tokyo.
