Summary
This Wide Angle report gets in step with military cadets at Japan's National Defense Academy preparing for possible overseas deployment and a group of peace demonstrators-including atomic bomb survivors-marching to preserve Japan's post-World War II policy of pacifism. In addition, unprecedented access to joint maneuvers with the U.S. Marine Corps, to surveillance flights over the Sea of Japan, and to the construction of the aircraft carrier Hyuga provides penetrating insights into the future of Asian geopolitics.
