Japan is still distrusted by many East Asian states and is involved in territorial and resource disputes with China and South Korea over the Senkaku (Diaoyu in Chinese) and Takeshima (Tok-do in Korean) islands respectively. At the same time, however, Japan can be said to have constructed carefully a set of special political relationships with the ASEAN states.

In spite of this apparent mutual neglect, however, the 1980s, 1990s and the start of the twenty-first century have witnessed growing signs of engagement between the Japanese government and businesses and their European counter-parts.
