Feb. 24, 2015 – “Poll: 70 years after WWII, most feel Japan on peaceful path, focusing on economy” (Yomiuri)

A national public opinion survey conducted by The Yomiuri Shimbun to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II revealed that most respondents held positive views about postwar Japan, with about 80 percent saying Japan had taken the path of a “peace-loving nation” over the seven decades since the war. The survey also found that major disasters and incidents, such as the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 2011, which ranked No. 1, and the sarin attack on the Tokyo subway system in 1995, were among the top events that respondents chose as defining the 70-year period after WWII.”
