The recent triumph at the polls of Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party may not be such a victory for the country as a whole, warns David Watts, as the new leadership threatens to bring a sense of antagonism towards its neighbours.
It was not so much a landslide, more a tsunami with potential consequences for Japan almost as significant as those of the natural disaster that overtook the country in March 2011.

The party, which enjoyed almost 50 years of unbroken rule until 2009, demolished the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ), which saw its support in the lower house collapse from 230 to 57 seats, giving it a two-thirds majority that will permit it to override upper house objections to its legislation.
