If UA wants to capture the Japan<->Asia market, why then doesn't UA
create a Japanese subsidiary who would then operate under Japanese rules
and agreements ?

I can understand that US airlines such as US would love to be able to
capture Japan<->Asia traffic perhaps more than they want the US<->Asia
traffic. (higher yields etc).

Lets look as Asia as a "continent", and the USA/Canada as a continent.
If Japan allows UA to carry Japanese from Japan to Indonesia for
instance, will the USA allow ANA or JAL to compete in the LAX-JFK route?

It is one thing to allow a foreign airline to hub at your airport to
help transfer its own passengers to onwards flights, but it is another
to allow a foreign airline to play in your own playing field.
