The Japanese Defense Force has a very disciplined and well developled/organized Marine Corp., but not similar to the well known US Marines as Doctrines change since World War II.

One is question is, what are we here to discuss? The Japanese Military or JDF's Marine Corp?

The report or whatever information claiming that Japan's Marine Corp is Second most powerful in the world is tremendously over-stated. They have forgotten the British Royal Marines whose capabilities are far beyond of Japan's limited defensive role. However, Japan's Marine Corp may be considered to be world-class. But that is only my speculations.

You have to remember that Japan does not have a true Marine Corp. The only that is near to the concept is the Maritime Self Defense Force (Navy) Naval Infantry. Try not to confuse the concepts.

As I said before, the reason why The Self Defense Force does not have a true Marine Corp is because of the imposed Limitions on Military Capabilities to put itself to a defensive role.

You're talking about Japan's military power and you didn't even mention the Maritime and Air Self Defense Forces?
Generally the top Marine Corps of the world tend to include the following:
USMC
Royal Marines
RoKMC
and often I believe, the Taiwanese Marines are also included.
It's not a concrete list and of course opinions vary but the Japanese one (if there is one???) is usually never on the list.
Is there even a Japanese Marines because I don't think they exist. Do you mean Navy?
