Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida basically exploited the US-led Western Mainstream Media’s fearmongering about Russia’s special operation in Ukraine as the pretext for accelerating his country’s remilitarization of its people’s psyche in parallel with its armed forces’ physical capabilities, which he expects to facilitate US-backed but Japanese-led multilateral efforts to more effectively contain China.

What can one say but "LOL"? They are over one century too late :P.
Japan is a slowly dying nation, maybe not even that slowly. Just look at the birth rates. This is really all about the Japanese domestic version of the MIC-IMATT(S). Everyone who can, is trying like the dickens to squeeze out the last of Japan's remaining wealth, just like the USA. Look at the distraction programming the propaganda units put out while the theft takes place. Not exactly building a warrior class. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQ9FxnA6Fnk&t=128s
Then there is the issue of how many Japanese want to have both Russia and China include them in nuclear targeting data. I expect soon enough the USA is going to find having bases in Okinawa is no longer a given.
