* JSDF forces have been secretly tracking the fictional characters materializing into the real world in ''Anime/ReCreators'', but it takes a HumongousMecha appearing for them to take overt action against them.

And speaking of exports, Japanese-designed weapons such as tanks and aircraft (and even the [=JSDF=]'s small arms) were for the longest time never meant to be for export because of laws restricting defense exports. However in TheNewTens, the Ministry of Defense began loosening the restrictions, in part due to the necessity of having Patriot missiles in Japan to defend itself from (mainly) North Korean ballistic missiles. These restrictions have now been done away with as of mid-2014 under the Abe administration, with [[http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2015/01/18/national/stealth-tech-no-given-in-japanese-sub-deal/#.VOg2k4EsHHI Australia]] now [[http://thediplomat.com/2014/10/australias-delicate-soryu-sub-balancing-act/ looking to purchase]] ''Soryu''-class attack submarines from Japan, the first Japanese arms sale to be done in decades. [[DevelopmentHell This deal is having a lot of problems going through.]]

As of 2015, Japan clearly intends to become a major player in the global arms trade (a market Japanese arms makers had long been restricted from joining), starting with making its first appearance at the [[http://www.janes.com/article/52803/japanese-p-1s-to-visit-riat-djibouti-in-first-overseas-trip UK International Air Tattoo]] marketing its Kawasaki P-1 ASW (anti-submarine warfare) plane. In July 2015, the lower house of the Japanese parliament [[http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2015/07/16/world/asia/ap-as-japan-military.html?_r=0 approved legislation]] that would allow JSDF forces to engage in military operations outside of Japan for the first time since the second world war.

Currently, however, they are facing difficulties due to their inexperience marketing outside of their domestic market, as well as the fact that many countries are hesitant to use weapons systems that have not been battle-tested in large-scale conflicts.

Much of these policies arose from the aftermath of WorldWarTwo and ImperialJapan, especially the rampant abuses and societal domination of the [[UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun Imperial Armed Forces]]. The nuclear weapon policy in particular is a reaction to the fact that Japan is the only nation to have ever been attacked with nuclear weapons. The [=JSDF=] is never officially referred to as a "military", "army", "air force", "navy", "{{sentai}}" or any other similar term.
