Last Week's Japan News on the JapanVisitor blog

Statistics

"This year Japan is paying 556.6 billion yen (4.8 billion dollars) for the stationing of US forces here, 165.8 billion yen (1.5 billion dollars) for land-leases, and, according to last year's figures, 8.8 billion yen (77 million dollars) to subsidize the bases. About all the US pays for are the troops' salaries. If our costs go any higher, we should consider treating the US military as a mercenary force under the command of Japan's Self Defense Forces."
