This isn’t the complete story.
The aircraft crashed in to the mountains. US military knew they could help with the rescue, but the Japanese government strongly insisted they did not provide assistance.
The US military could have arrived in hours while the Japanese could only make way once the sun rises the next day.
Japanese medical examiners found that many more that 4 would have lived if rescuers were deployed immediately. Many died crying in pain over night while the Japanese response wanted to save what they call “face”.
In hindsight they realized their goal of saving “face” killed a lot of people and the people in charge did not save “face” they killed citizens over arrogance.
