Aug 08 Japan PM front-runner calls for single Asian currency (canada.com)
 Japanese opposition leader Yukio Hatoyama, seen as the likely next prime minister, has called for a single Asian currency to strengthen the region's economic and political ties. "We should aim to unify currencies in the region and realize an Asian common currency," Hatoyama said in an article he contributed to the monthly magazine Voice to be published on Monday.
Aug 08 Clinton's success highlights Japan's abductee failures (Japan Times)
 Former U.S. President Bill Clinton's dramatic trip to North Korea this week to win the release of two American journalists stands in sharp contrast to Japan's lack of an effective strategy to resolve the fate of its own citizens abducted by Pyongyang.
Aug 07 Obama wants 'strong' start with Japan (AFP)
 President Barack Obama Thursday pledged to get off to a strong, diplomatic start with key US ally Japan, praising his choice for ambassador to Tokyo ahead of his Senate confirmation vote. Obama said the US relationship with Japan was one of the "cornerstones of our security and economic wellbeing."
Aug 06 Ruling party's base erodes in Japan (New York Times)
 For more than a half-century, this city in rural western Japan has been a political stronghold of the long-governing Liberal Democratic Party, as unshakable as the stone battlements of the medieval castle overlooking its downtown. Now, the party's once formidable patronage and vote-gathering machine appears to be breaking down.
Aug 05 Majority in US back Hiroshima bombing (Brisbane Times)
 Nearly two-thirds of Americans think the United States was right to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki 64 years ago, ending World War II, a poll showed on Tuesday. Only 22 percent of those polled said then-US president Harry Truman was wrong to order the devastating bombings of the two Japanese cities in August 1945, according to the survey by Quinnipiac University.
Aug 05 Japanese electioneering tiptoes into Internet age (AFP)
 High-tech Japan is gearing up for elections, but you won't hear a tweet from Prime Minister Taro Aso or his main rivals. US President Barack Obama's use of the Web helped catapult him into the White House but lawmakers in Japan have been slower to embrace the Internet, leaving many young voters feeling disconnected with the political process.
Aug 04 Opposition woos Japan's voters with costly vows (New York Times)
 In a recent YouTube video posted by Japan's governing party, a smooth talker with an uncanny resemblance to the country's main opposition leader, woos his date with sweet promises: a life without worries about child care costs or retirement, if only she will marry him.
Aug 04 Cost of U.S.-Japan missile defense effort up sharply (Reuters)
 A joint U.S.-Japanese missile defense program being built by Raytheon Co (RTN.N) is now slated to cost $3.1 billion, $700 million more than expected, mainly due to a Pentagon decision to cancel a separate program, a top military official said on Monday.
Aug 04 More parties pledge child-support measures (Yomiuri)
 With child-support measures shaping up to be a key vote-getter in the upcoming election, the smaller political parties have entered the fray by pledging to do more for children and their families. New Komeito has stipulated in its manifesto a measure to provide free education for preschool children for three years at such places as kindergartens and nurseries.
Aug 03 Japan confused about Chinese deal over Iranian oil field (AP)
 The Japanese government called for international cooperation Monday to address Iran's nuclear development, suggesting China's recent move to take a major stake in an Iranian oil field may hamper such global efforts. "I think we have got a premise that the international community must cooperate to handle that problem," Japanese Vice Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Harufumi Mochizuki told reporters when asked about China's action, which came after Japan gave up part of its concession in Iran's Azadegan oil field amid criticism over Tehran's nuclear ambitions.
Aug 03 Japan eyes e-politics as political rivalry grows (Reuters)
 Japanese opposition lawmaker Seiji Ohsaka was disappointed, if not surprised, when he found he was supposed to stop posting microblogs on social networking service Twitter once the formal campaign begins for an Aug. 30 election. But as Japanese politicians increasingly eye the Internet as a way to woo independent voters, Ohsaka and others wonder if an outdated ban on cyber campaigning will really hold.
Aug 03 History may haunt Asia less under Japan Democrats (Reuters)
 Japan's opposition Democratic Party will seek to keep bitter wartime memories from fraying ties with Asian neighbours if it takes power in this month's election, but the ghosts of the past are unlikely to be easily laid to rest. And while tight economic ties between Japan and China make getting along essential, any new government in Tokyo faces the tough challenge of responding to Beijing's rising global clout.
