Abstract

Japan's new thinking on regionalism is a means of soft balancing that counters a rising Chinese infuence. A "hard" balancing strategy through an alliance with the United States is insuffcient because the Chinese economy is indispensable for Japan's prosperity and because China is rising through soft power. Japan's response uses the concept of community based on universal values.
