Look East Policy adds Japanese investors’ confidence in Malaysia, causing Japan emerged the largest foreign investor in Malaysia between 1980-2012, despite the absence of the Investment Guarantee Agreement between the two countries. But I found that the application of the Japanese values against the Malay community before implementation of the Look East Policy and its aftermath still not succeeded in making the community resembles the Japanese on this day of life, thinking and ways of working. The thinking and behavior of Japanese society is also often associated with Shinto religious role in various aspects of life whether in the political, economic or social aspects.
