...The Self-Defence Forces (SDF), despite the innocuous name, is one of the world’s most powerful armies, with the eighth-largest budget, a larger navy than France and Britain combined, over 1,600 aircraft and four flat-top carriers. Its 300,000 troops are superbly equipped. In addition, Japan has what is assumed to be a sophisticated system to defend against incoming missiles, should it come to war with North Korea.

...The army’s biggest challenge may not be legal or political, however, but demographic. Japan’s population of 18-year-olds has shrunk by more than half a million over the past two decades, and military recruitment has long been a problem.
