Japan’s relationship with South Korea has long been complicated by historical grievances. Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has pursued reconciliation, but much work remains to be done. Professor Yoshihide Soeya describes how Japanese society has grappled with this complex bilateral relationship and how the new Korean administration might change the equation for Japan and the United States.
