The results of a government survey released Saturday showed 85.5 percent of Japanese polled think Japan is at risk of getting involved in another war.

That's up 10.0 points from the 2015 survey and the highest since 2009, when the same set of answers was first posed as part of a survey conducted every three years, according to the Cabinet Office.

The Cabinet Office surveyed 3,000 men and women from Jan. 11 to 21 and drew valid responses from 55.7 percent. The latest survey was expanded to include anyone at least 18 years old, instead of 20 or older, in light of the new age of adulthood.
