In time, memories fade. The impact of Hiroshima and Nagasaki will fade. In saying that it's a difficult one to call as for so long Japan was at war, either internally or with her neighbours. I have no idea how much Bushido there is left in Japan, who seem to be culturally awed by the US and Western Europe, at least from the perspective I get.

I also am not up-to-date on the Japan-Korea relationship. I know it was very bad in the past.

Japan - Korea relationship MUST improve.
The Japanese side needs to distance itself with its war criminals of old, and South Korea must learn to friggin' forgive the current generation for the crimes of their previous generation (or 2 generations ago in some cases). With the sheer number of churches around here, you might think that forgiving and loving may have entered these people's minds a long time ago but sadly the churches have been failing like hell in their primary objective.
Right now, the Japanese made fresh claims to the Dokdo islands (which they call Takeshima). It's clearly a Korean island because the inhabitants were Koreans. The reason why Japan claims it is that the first REGISTERED resident of Dokdo was Japanese. Even though this guy came much much later.
Basically after the whole colonial era stuff, South Korea is not willing to give an inch of land or sea to the Japanese.
The Chinese and the North Koreans know that the best way to win South Korea over is the Anti-Japanese sentiment.

It would not take Japan long to rebuild if the limitations were lifted.They are one of the worlds most industrialized and technilogicly advanced nation in the world. Of the like 700,000 'working' robots in the world Japan operates around 50% of them.

Oh, they could rearm with tanks and such pretty quickly. Building up their naval forces, however, will take some time. Even with all the robotics and industrialization in the world, warships don't get constructed very quickly. Training the soldiers, sailors, and airmen for a large military takes a lot of time and effort as well.

dude, i don't know how you get this kind of ideas. who is the bigest trading partner of south korea? not U.S, not japan, it's china, years ago! a news report is even suggesting that chinese market is feeding about 3 miilion south koreans!

anti-japanese sentiment is not something china invented or propaganda, it's the trues! when your fellow koreans fighting for the island of Dokdo, chinese were fighting for diaoyu island, and the eastern china sea. japan is expanding slowly because it's need of energy. and their history memory is lacking for the aisans to trust them fully! japan is the only country you can warship the war crimals of the ww2 on this plent.

man, japanese news agency even publicly demends BBC to stop lunching a documentry made by UK about the war crime in aisa days ago, they were denying everything in the history, how can you let it go?? you can crticize china's helping NK decades ago, but how can you mess those two things with the japanese? (not even mention a CNN news report of finding a US fighter pilot's body in china, which been shut down and crushed in that war, how the plane and the pilots ended up there? how close were the U.N forces to the chinese border?? )how can americans ignore the fact from the ww2 to let them slip away from the responsibility? they were been bombed, 3000 died hours after japan poposed "peace" to U.S you know! how can they come back to the U.N sercurity council when they still don't confess the reason of been baned the first place???????

Aircraft wouldn't be that big of a problem either,However if they realy put there industry into it they could get a good sized navy up in about 3 or 4 years.

I can answer this question. For indiginous designs, they've got Mitsubishi F-1s, similar to the British Jaguar, and F-2 fighter-bombers, which are lightly modified F-16 Block 40s. I'm not sure, but they might also produce American E-2C Hawkeye AWACS aircraft as well under license.
