Even with Naoto Kan securing his job in the ruling DPJ party leadership vote, he still faces a number of challenges.

Analysts say Naoto Kan must try to unify his party and forge deals with the opposition to pass laws in a divided parliament. Kan also needs to address the country's pressing economic issues. Data from the second quarter shows Japan's economic revival is slowing. Market analysts are worried about the strength of the yen which has reached a 15-year high against the dollar, hurting exports and weak domestic demand. Besides, how to deal with a fast-aging society and resolving the relocation of the US airbase on Okinawa island are also tricky issues for him to deal with.
