It's good to see more and more countries building up their space capabilities, if this mission is fully successful it means a lot for Japan as they had some setbacks in the past.

Absolutely!

At least the riskyest part for HTV is over....launch.

And to put things into perspective, Discovery is trying to land having made a cargo shipment with its MLPM. Soon that capability will be gone. SpaceX and Orbital Sciences will have to pick up the cargo missions.
