Japan is green.
Japanese company offered FREE sewage treatment plants. Greedy brazilians wanted the company to PAY lol.
White plantation owner etc. conned asians offering good life but in reality harsh almost slave like coolie type labor in Hawaii/california/brazil/peru/argentina etc. Some of Japanese/Japanese American was able to convert waste land in California/Texas into farmland. 1929 white racists in California passed law forbidding ethnic Japanese(even American citizen) to own land and stole lands for virtually nothing.
Annexation made Korea/Taiwan/Manchu part of Japan which IMPROVED LIVES with citizenship, educated, DEMOCRACY, modernized with huge investment LOSS(1000 school, road, dam, water, sewage, rail, hospital, 590 million plants) and provided law; population 13 million to 26 million; literacy 4% to 60%; life expectancy 24 to 56; abolish slavery; reduced crime
Even long time ago, Japan was clean and environmentally friendly. Edo/Tokyo had huge population. Farmers PAID to take human waste lol. and made manure fertilizer.
Japan don’t have much natural resources, but it survived on isolation. Japan did NOT deforest and plan things thinking for the future generations.
