The evolution in the identity of Japan's foreign policy after the catastrophic defeat in the Second World War took place in the form of a transformation in the concepts of Honor. The elites of Japanese foreign policy did not consider honor and credibility in foreign policy in violent territorial expansion, and by giving economic and peaceful content to the above two concepts, they adopted a different direction in Japan's foreign policy. Japan's regional Order building behavior in the form of establishing agreements and economic institutions and strengthening trans-regional economic alliances with the West has shown the objective manifestation of this evolution. The question of the current research is why and how the direction of Japan's foreign policy has changed from violent geopolitical expansion to peaceful geoeconomic expansion after World War II? The hypothesis proposed to answer the current research question is that the elite consensus change in Japanese foreign policy in the content of the two concepts of credit and honor, followed by a change in the identity, role playing and behaviors of Japanese foreign policy to a change from violent geopolitical orientation to It has led to peaceful geo-economics. This has been done through the strengthening of orderly geo-economic links at three domestic, regional and global levels. The research method is an explanatory article, and the data collection method is document-library.
