Abstract

With the advent of the post-cold war period, the U.S.-Japan alliance was characterized by the policy of drift without a new common goal. The United States has increased its pressure on Japan to further open its market. And there has been a growing voice among the Japanese people arguing that the U.S.-Japan national security system which is a “legacy of the Cold War” is no longer necessary. They suggested that Japan should strengthen its national security through multilateral-based security cooperation. The issue of abolishing the alliance was also raised by the United States. Those who argued for the abolition of the alliance in the United States referred to the asymmetry of national security, arguing that America has guaranteed the security of Japan but Japan has not actively met the requirements of national security from America.
