Why Japanese Politics!?

Because it’s so unique.

Weak Democracy?

Japanese politics has been dominated by one party, the Liberal Democratic Party. (自民党) It has experienced few and short regime changes (the Hosokawa Regime and the Democratic Party Regime)

Though Japan experienced World War II, Japan rapidly reconstructed its economy after World War II and it grew even so that some calls Japan As Number One.
