My thoughts regarding terrorist groups in Japan is that they are no longer the important and dangerous force that they once were.  There was a time in the 1970s when leftist terrorist groups from Japan were a danger in Japan itself and even in other countries.  The Japanese Red Army was the most famous of these.  However, those days are long gone.  There was, of course, the Aum Shinrikyo sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway in 1995.  But that was the last major terrorist action in Japan and was tied to a eccentric religious cult rather than to any larger worldwide movement.
