Ideally, it is understandable that the Asian countries are growing stronger and more equipped day after another (Nye, 2004:63). This economic, social, military, and political growth is giving the western countries and some of other Asian nations a hard time comprehending what exactly are spearheading this development (Cooney, 2002:13). Japan, for instance, has continued to enjoy sustainable political governance under the control of the Japan Democratic Party, a factor that is leading to improved economic growth. As of today, China is the most influential country within the Asian belt. In terms of military equipment and personnel, China ranks highest as it has an all-encompassing system of security system powered by internal government support (Hagstrom, 2005:87). Agreeably, it has a huge influence over the other Asian countries and it is even stretching her influence towards the western countries (Christop, 2006:54).
Economic wise, China leads the region with her products available in all corners of the globe. Compared to Japan, China is indeed the giant of Asia and as a result, its rise and intensification in power may threaten the Asian continent growth including that of Japan and Korea (Cooney, 2002:26). Studies indicate that, for Japan to counter the influence portrayed by China over the Asian countries, it must be smart and come up with systems, platforms, and strategic plans capable of either matching China’s economic and military growth or surpass its development (Alterman and Garver, 2008:67). Among these projects is specifically the pertinent creation of a security structure in Asia that can control with a rise of China's power. The Society for Japanese Studies maintain that, for Japan to achieve the goal of controlling China’s growing influence over the Asian nations, it must resolve to create a security system that has greater control over the rising Chinese power (Thornton, 2002:85). Japan can do so by seeking the support of other Asian countries or create the system internally. Believably, the former would work easier given the fact that Korea has expressed concerns over China’s military unification and economic dominance over the Asian continent and even over other potential markets like Africa (Hagstrom, 2005:109). Thus, it would be unproblematic for Korea to join Japan in her quest for controlling the rising Chinese power. Nevertheless, it is should is important to conform that, as Japan seeks to create a security structure in Asia that can control China's rise in power, it must ensure that it maintains the diplomatic relations with the PRC in policy (Cooney, 2002:44). To do that, Japan must try as much as it can to avoid going against the stipulated policies of the PRC. Generally, Japan with the help of
