It is because Arasaka are Japanese and Johnny is a major racist, it isn't even because of pearl harbour he just dislikes their eyes. Of course CDPR did have to tone down Johnny's racism to avoid controversy so it isn't really as much on display here but if you read the source material Johnny is basically a Neo Nazi, it is part of the reason they changed his hair to black from blonde in the game, they wanted to distance themselves from the Aryan supremacy ideology that Johnny was a part of.
What?? This is simply not true & totally not from the lore LOL
You're simply putting some mad BS here.

It's revealed later what happened to Alt but even before that he seemed to have a grudge specifically against them. I get that his wartime experience would've made him hate the corps but you'd think he would focus more on Millitech considering they're the ones who are based in America and, iirc, the ones who abandoned vets like him once they were no longer useful.
Johnny's real goal has always been anti corpo. He was an ex-military being experimented on, totally expendable in wars & Arasaka was one of the companies that funded/profiting from wars, arguably the biggest one. Arasaka became his ultimate bane because Arasaka was the biggest one in NC too back then & they kidnapped Alt, as he thought the kidnapping was because of his "Rockerboy" anti-corpo campaign.
The real reason actually totally different & Alt is more important to Arasaka than Silverhand will ever be. This is the same thing to the so called rivalry with Adam Smasher that simply just Silverhand own shrewed perception of reality & narcissistic tendency. Adam Smasher didn't even really know Silverhand back at the 2023, let alone being his rival. Real rival of Adam Smasher is "Morgan Blackhand."
BEAR IN MIND, the past memories missions we played in CP2077 were all Johnny's "construct" memories. NOT A HISTORICAL FACTS within the lore.
