Late last month, Japan’s government approved a new defense strategy, which includes historic policy changes and a boost in military spending.

  • The updated strategy comes in part due to the rising threat Japan feels from China, Tatsumi explained.
  • Japan is doubling down on its ballistic missile defense capabilities and will be looking to acquire strike capabilities, according to Tatsumi.
