|Comparing Taiwan's and Japan's opinion polls, Taiwan has a very optimistic view that Japan will come to help Taiwan in case of crisis (these terms are loosely defined and very ambiguous, notwithstanding.), Japanese public opinion suggests that they are not necessarily thinking about direct help. But, instead to help the US forces that are helping Taiwan. Even so, Japanese laws are so complicated, which specify what Japan can do, and thus take s too long a time to come to a conclusion. Namely, it might not be a timely help to the US, no matter what some politicians say.
