I have such respect for the Japanese. Not just the cultural and technological contribution to 'the west' but also the shear survivability of these people. We literally nuked them twice and burned all of their cities down and they rebuilt to be a dominate regional economy in less than half a century. Earthquakes of 8.0-9.0 variety? They laugh them off. Nuclear meltdown worse than the one that brought down the entire USSR? Please they aren't scared of a little Cobalt they will just invent the "Japanese Miracle" in 2025 if I remember correctly.

I am sure they will be fine, they deserve to be.

To be fair, other than culture and tech they have contributed to the world most of your points are kinda... pointless.

On Their economy post-ww2

The US didn't destroy all of their cities in the first place. But either way the US was mostly responsible for their growth after the war; giving them TONS of money, getting them into GATT, and providing for their defense.

On earthquakes/nuclear

The Japanese culture actually contributed to the nuclear problem because people in charge of it didn't want to admit how bad it was and measures could have been put in place earlier if their culture allowed for more open communication. Their response to earthquakes is really no different from any country dealing with them regularly.

I am sure they will be fine, they deserve to be.

They are kinda responsible for some of the worst war-time atrocities ever committed. If you want to see the horror they inflicted on just a single chinese city click the link below or look up info on the rape of nanjing. I am not sure they are more deserving than any other culture of good fortune.

With all that said, I do love their porn. Just not big on your love letter to the country of Japan, considering their history.

Japan killed some people during a war?

I am shocked. But really I don't even hold pearl harbour against them. A brilliantly executed attack that failed only because the carriers weren't in port. We really had it coming. Who the hell were we to say they couldn't invade China or that we could blockade them. You have to let it go man.

Are you South Korean? They hate the Japanese for no good reason also.
