Essay

 I believe that there are two major roles of Japan as a member of the Asian community as follows.
 The first major role is to establish amicable relations with the other Asian countries. In this modern world where the economy has been deteriorating and the population has been increasing exponentially and there are a lot of environmental problems, this is no time for conflict and fighting. Japan should cooperate with the other Asian countries in order to solve the aforesaid serious worldwide problems.
 The second major role is to set an example as a mentally healthy country which does not wage war and to make the other Asian countries realize that wars are obsolete. One of the greatest things about Japan is its constitution, Article 9, the renouncement of use of military forces as a means to solving international conflicts. Japan should disseminate this to the other Asian countries in order to achieve world peace. The world should focus on mental richness and should learn how to use mind and control negative emotions and should stop pursuing material things too much.
 In conclusion, I believe that there are the aforesaid two major roles of Japan as a member of the Asian community.
