the war mentioned by Yuren in the imperial edict refers to the war with Britain and the United States that has been read for four years since 1941, and he simply does not say a word about the act of aggression against China. The words “killing innocent people frequently and suffering within reach” are even used for the acts of countries around the world against Japanese fascism.

Tongguan Yuren’s “imperial edict for the end of the war”, in 815 words, the word “surrender” can not be seen at all, and Japan’s “defeat” has not been recognized. For the war of aggression launched by Japanese fascists, the imperial edict also made all kinds of sophistry, saying that the war was for Japan’s “self survival” and the “peace” in East Asia. Japan still regarded itself as the Savior of “liberating East Asia” against the white rule of Europe. Moreover, the war mentioned by Yuren in the imperial edict refers to the war with Britain and the United States that has been read for four years since 1941, and he doesn’t say a word about the act of invading China at all. The words “killing innocent people frequently and suffering within reach” are even used for the acts of countries around the world against Japanese fascism.

over the years, we seem to have fallen into a misunderstanding about the national character of Japan. We always think that Japan’s war against foreign countries in history is only a tragedy brewed by the supreme ruler of Japan, the emperor and a small group of war maniacs, which has nothing to do with the majority of the Japanese people. At best, the Japanese people are just hoodwinked. However, if we make a little analysis of Japan’s modern history, it is not difficult to see that this view is one-sided and naive.

was published in Japanese

on August 15, 1945 in Tokyo.

the citizens of Tokyo, who have been struggling in the continuous air raid alarm, just woke up from their panic sleep and heard the radio broadcast repeatedly: “Your Majesty the emperor will deliver a speech in person at noon today. This is the highest blessing. All the subjects of the country must listen to it at that time.”

although the news of Japan’s imminent surrender spread all over the world six days ago, as ordinary Tokyo citizens, they still hear and see the myth of “the imperial army will win” and the war report of “the great victory of Jihad in East Asia”. However, interested people are also wondering why the location of the “great victory report” is getting closer and closer to Japan since the imperial army is invincible and victorious?

at noon, activities all over Japan stopped. In factories, schools, homes and military bases, people gathered around speakers and radios to listen to important broadcasts to be broadcast. A few days ago, in the pusang valley of Nagasaki, which had just been bombed by the atomic bomb, a group of people gathered around the speakers in the campus, surrounded by piles of blackened bodies. In Hiroshima, which has turned into ruins, the remaining citizens gathered outside the broken wall of the railway station destroyed by the atomic bomb and stood silently under the horn. This is the first time that the Japanese island country has heard the voice of the emperor, who is respected as the “God of heavenly illumination”.

heard that even the famous announcer Naoto Kada was a little nervous: “this broadcast is extremely important. Please stand up. Your majesty will now broadcast an order to the Japanese people. We play the voice of the emperor with respect.”

at 12 noon, Japan’s National Anthem “generation of kings” was played. Then, the emperor spoke to the Japanese people for the first time in history.

a slightly nasal and shrill male voice came from the radio: “the war situation has not improved, and the general trend of the world is also bad for me”, “The enemy has recently used cruel bombs to kill innocent people frequently. It’s really unexpected. If we continue to fight, it will not only lead to the destruction of our nation, but also destroy human civilization. In this case, how can I preserve the hundred million trillion red children and thank the gods of the Emperor’s ancestors? Therefore, I urge the imperial government to accept the joint announcement.”

should be the same as the whole nation. We are assured of the eternal destiny of our sons and daughters. We must devote ourselves to the future construction, nationally adhere to the principles of morality, strengthen our ideals, and pledge to carry forward the essence of the state and not lag behind the evolution of the world.

“Yuyin” played for 4 minutes and 37 seconds. This is the first time that the Japanese have heard the true voice of the emperor, but the emperor uses Japanese classical Chinese, which many people can’t understand, so there are various conjectures and explanations: does the emperor want the people to follow him to “break jade”; The royal family should give everyone reserve rice to prepare for a decisive battle with the invading enemy; The Imperial Navy of Japan wanted to attack the US mainland…

until half an hour later, the broadcaster said in a clear voice: “Your Majesty, in order to bring peace to the world, has notified the United States, Britain, China and the Soviet Union yesterday to accept the Potsdam announcement.” People realized that Japan was defeated.

at noon on this day, in the Golden Rooster college in Tokyo, masakuki Oka, the college supervisor and a famous Japanese scholar, listened to the “Yuyin broadcast” with more than 100 people who came to attend the afternoon lecture of the college. Listen, Angang began to look angry, because the sentence “the existence of righteousness and life” he had repeatedly stressed was not retained in the imperial edict, but further changed into “the trend of luck”。 To outsiders, these two sentences seem insignificant, just a modification of words, but Oka is well aware of the mystery. According to the “existence of righteousness and life” he changed, it shows that Japan ended the war out of moral considerations, and now using “the trend of luck” is tantamount to directly admitting that Japan was defeated and surrendered.

two nights ago, on August 13, 1945, the Secretary of the cabinet registrar, Ji shuijiuchang, paid a secret night visit to Ankang and sent the first draft of the imperial edict drafted by Professor and sinologist Mizuho Kawabata of Waseda University for revision. Ankang later recalled his idea of revising the imperial edict at that time: first, we must choose words that can represent the authority of the Japanese emperor that were not used when any country was defeated. Second, it cannot be shown that Japan surrendered because of its last resort; It must be said that the decision is made by the existence of morality and the supremacy of conscience. Defeat and surrender are not based on gain or loss. This is the imperial way of Japan and the essence of Japanese spirit. Under this train of thought, Ankang almost pondered every word and made a substantial revision to the imperial edict. Among them, Ankang believes that there are two most proud Masterpieces: first, Ankang changed the “desire to ensure peace forever” in the draft to “create peace for all ages”. Ankang is proficient in Chinese. This sentence comes from the book “Zhang Zai Ji Zhang Zizheng Meng”, which “stands for heaven and earth, lives for the living people, inherits unique knowledge to the holy world, and opens peace for all ages”. When Ankang put this sentence into the armistice edict, it was obvious that he wanted to forcibly smear some glory on Japan’s surrender.

second, Ankang added “the existence of righteous life” before the sentence “I want to endure what I am embarrassed by.”. “Righteousness and destiny” comes from “righteousness through faith and destiny through righteousness” in Zuo Zhuan of spring and autumn (Zuo Zhuan · eight years of Chenggong). When Yasukuni wrote this sentence, the whole world declared that Japan’s surrender was not forced but the pursuit of morality.

to this end, Ankang specially told the cabinet registrar in charge of the imperial edict to force water. These two places are the finishing touches of the whole imperial edict and must not be changed. However, when the cabinet deliberated on the first revised draft of Yasukuni, the sentence “the survival of righteousness” sparked controversy. Most members of the cabinet don’t think they will understand the word “national life”. Forced water thought of Ankang’s advice and explained it again and again. But the opponents finally took out the dictionary and said that the word was not in the dictionary. Forced water speechless. I had to let the cabinet change this sentence to “fate”.

when the army and people of the island country really understood the emperor’s speech, millions of Japanese cried for it. Their tears were full of grief, shame and relief. They felt sorrow and shame for the lost honor of the great Japanese Empire, and they were relieved that they would no longer endure long-term pain. In Tokyo, millions of people crowded in front of the Imperial Palace and bowed to the emperor. From time to time, there were messy gunshots all over Tokyo, and right-wing officers pulled out their guns to commit suicide. In other parts of Japan, many people who did not know the emperor’s speech mistakenly believed that Japan had won the war and the war was over.

the famous Japanese director Akira Kurosawa recorded this unusual day in his autobiography: “on August 15, 1945, in order to listen to the broadcast of the imperial edict, I was called to the studio. The scene I saw on the road at that time will never be forgotten.

“On the way from zushigu to anvil studio, there were 100 million people in the store street. They were very nervous. Some bosses took out Japanese knives, pulled out their scabbards and stared at the blade.

“I had expected that this was the declaration of the end of the war. Seeing this scene, I thought, what will happen to Japan?”

yoshihei Kimura, who lived in Tokyo at that time, also recalled: Although we don’t know the specific content of the Potsdam announcement, at this moment, we all know that Japan has really lost the war. Sobbing, wailing and crashing sound immediately sounded in Tokyo, in the Japanese archipelago and in all parts of Asia occupied by Japan.

intriguing details

as the country that launched the Second World War and the defeated country, Germany and Japan, for more than half a century after the war, showed different positions on the introspection and attitude towards the war that brought profound disasters to the people of the world. “It’s not the annual ‘August 15’ as the day of defeat, but as the ‘Memorial Day of the end of the war’, which is the actual situation of Japan’s mainstream media. I have a strong sense of touch,” said yoshiichi Komori, a professor at the University of Tokyo and author of the emperor’s jade sound broadcast “In order to expose the distortion of history made by Emperor Showa on August 15, 1945, I wrote the book” transmission of the jade voice of the emperor “. It is not only a distortion of the history before August 15, but also a distortion in Japan’s post-war history. Therefore, I attach importance to the day of August 15.”

is this “the jade voice of the emperor”, which has caused an uproar in Japanese society. Because in this book, Professor Komori not only blames the Emperor himself for war crimes, but also reveals the rightist trend of Japanese society.

Robbers kill people and shout their grievances. In this regard, it is not difficult to see the dark side of the Japanese national character, compared with their own strongThe country and nation have incomparable respect and worship, and are arrogant and contemptuous of countries and nations inferior to their own. The Japanese government and people generally believe that they were defeated by the United States. They are convinced by Uncle Sam, but they have not lost at all to China, South Korea and Asian countries. In that case, it is difficult for the Japanese government to willingly take the initiative to apologize to Asian countries and people for the crimes committed in World War II, let alone take the initiative to bear the economic compensation paid for the crimes, such as the compensation for the comfort women of China and South Korea.

on August 14, 1945, all major Japanese media received Hirohito’s “imperial edict for the end of the war” at midnight. The next day, almost coincidentally, all newspapers described “surrender” as “the end of the war”. The title of the daily news is “holy judgment: the end of the Great East Asian war; the promulgation of the imperial edict to clean up the current situation”; “Yomiuri Shimbun” is even more brazen, even with the title of “opening peace for all ages”, claiming that “our war is a just war, a war of self-defense, and the purpose of the war is for the liberation of East Asia and the well-being of one billion people”.

in fact, no matter what evasion and sophistry, Japan’s defeat and acceptance of unconditional surrender is an indisputable historical fact.

what is unconditional surrender? Unconditional surrender refers to the surrender of a defeated country to a victorious country without reservations. It means that the victorious country is mainly constrained by public opinion and civilization, while the defeated country is subject to strict legal restrictions, that is, everything should comply with the instructions and orders of the victorious country. The main characteristics of unconditional surrender are: first, there is no negotiation, and the victorious country only conveys the unilateral forced landing requirements and specific matters of surrender to the defeated country, such as time and place. Second, it does not recognize that the victorious country does not recognize that the former government, political organization and leaders of the defeated country have any political power. From the surrender and signature of the defeated country to the establishment of normal relations with the victorious country, the functions of the government of the defeated country shall be exercised by the head office of the garrison of the victorious country.

to be exact, the official time of Japan’s surrender was 7 a.m. Chongqing time on August 15, six hours earlier than the imperial edict announced by Japanese Emperor Hirohito. At 7:30 a.m. on August 10, 1945, after the world heard the news released by Japan’s new Foreign Minister Chong guangkui on Japanese radio, the four governments of China, the United States, the United Kingdom and the Soviet union negotiated and agreed on the time specified in the “four nation announcement”, that is, at 7:00 a.m. (Chongqing time) on August 15, from the four capitals Chongqing,, London and Moscow, in Chinese, English and Russian, Broadcast the same announcement to the naval, land and air forces of the enemy and ours: Japan’s unconditional surrender. It was clearly recorded in the Central News Agency in 1945: “the news of Japan’s formal surrender was announced at 5:15 a.m. on the 15th by U.S. Secretary of state Bernards, who informed U.S. ambassador to China Hurley and Vice Foreign Minister Wu Guozhen on a radio typewriter. It was agreed to be announced at 7:00 p.m. on the 14th Washington time, that is, 7:00 a.m. on the 15th Chongqing summer time.” The announcement of

has the highest international authority. Once announced, the war stopped, which fully shows the dominance of the four major powers in the overall situation of World War II. At that time, Japanese newspapers blocked the “four kingdoms announcement”. Later, Japanese historical works also avoided this major historical fact and tried to publicize the role of Emperor Hirohito in ending the war. In this regard, Qiu Weiji, a Chinese scholar of literature and history, wrote an article to expose, “Taking 12 noon Tokyo time on August 15 (1 pm Chongqing time) as the end of the war, playing Emperor Hirohito, who has been under the control of China, the United States, Britain and the Soviet Union, as the master who can declare a truce and build peace, while China, the United States, Britain and the Soviet Union have become ‘loyal and good ministers and people’ who obey the imperial edict. This is a misreading of history and must be corrected!”

through this detail, it is not difficult to see that not only the Japanese government, but also the mainstream of Japanese society still pose an ambiguous attitude in front of the people all over the world, lack of profound reflection, unwilling to sincerely repent, and only intend to take advantage of others’ tolerance and kindness to shirk historical and practical responsibilities.

as Japanese veteran Shiro Toshiro said during World War II: “In today’s Japan, the idea of ‘Jihad’ is still prevalent. The strange theory of ‘not aggression, but the liberation of Asia from white hands’ is becoming more and more intense, and there is no desire to reflect on history. The Japanese army’s aggression in China for 15 years has brought great disaster to China, killing a large number of people and families. At the end of the war, it once advocated dividing Japan into three, which is to exclude the masses The integrity of Japan was preserved; It was also Chiang Kai Shek who put forward the proposition of “repay good for evil, not revenge”, which enabled more than 2 million Japanese soldiers in China to return home quickly, let alone pay a penny of compensation. Then he put forward the slogan of friendship between China and Japan from generation to generation, and implemented the broad-minded Chinese people. ”

why does Japan often have “ambiguous forgetting” about this disgraceful history that is well known all over the world? How did this “collective amnesia” come into being?

over the years, we seem to have fallen into a misunderstanding about Japan’s national character. We always think that Japan’s war against foreign countries in history is only a tragedy brewed by Japan’s supreme ruler, the emperor and a small group of war maniacs, which has nothing to do with the majority of the Japanese people. At best, the Japanese people are just hoodwinked. However, if we make a little analysis of Japan’s modern history, it is not difficult to see that this view is one-sided and naive. In 159kd ad, the invasion of “sukhi” and “sukhi” spekds, the governor of “sukhi” and “sukhi” spekds of the Qing Dynasty, broke out; In 1894, Japan sent troops to invade Korea and secretly attacked the Sino Japanese war launched by the Chinese Navy and army; In 1904, Japan provoked the Russo Japanese war in China by surprise attack; And the war of aggression against China and the Pacific War launched by Japan in the 1930s. Which of these unjust wars of aggression in history has not been enthusiastically supported and supported by the Japanese people? Can these wars be carried out on such a large scale without the enthusiastic and positive response of most Japanese citizens?

according to historical data, even the Communist Party of Japan voted in favor of the war bill during World War IITickets. At the end of the people’s anti fascist war all over the world, the U.S. military launched a final attack on Japan. In the battle of Okinawa, Japan suffered more than 240000 casualties. Among them, there are only more than 60000 regular soldiers, and nearly 180000 are ordinary people. In order to be loyal to the emperor and carry out the “Great East Asian Jihad”, these people would rather commit suicide than surrender. After the war, the Japanese government pursued the responsibility of the war. At that time, the prime minister dongjiuyou put forward the slogan of “100 million total confession”; The Communist Party of Japan also proposed “100 million people and 100 million war criminals” and advocated that all Japanese people repent together. However, this formulation has not been recognized by most Japanese. When Western journalists interviewed citizens and why Japan was defeated, most people replied, “Japan is not ready yet”. Until the 1990s, when conducting public opinion surveys, Japanese public opinion still found that less than 50% recognized that the war in the past was a war of aggression, while 50% believed that the war was a last resort for survival; 45% agreed that the war was “resisting European and American oppression and liberating Asian countries”, while only 25% disagreed.

on April 23, 2005, Chinese President Hu Jintao met with Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi at the Asia Africa summit, put forward five proposals on China Japan relations, and stressed that Japan should put its reflection on the war of aggression into action. In this regard, Prime Minister Koizumi said that Japan is willing to actively promote China Japan friendly and cooperative relations in accordance with the spirit of the five point proposal put forward by China. However, a poll of 808 citizens conducted by Japan’s Asahi Shimbun on April 24 showed that about 71% of the respondents did not understand Hu Jintao’s request for Japan to “take practical action” to apologize for its crimes in World War II.

of course, this does not mean to impose the responsibility of war on the Japanese people, nor does it mean that there are no people in Japan who adhere to China Japan friendship. The author just wants to remind the Chinese people that the way of thinking that separates the rulers and the people in historical events only by virtue of some political conclusion will not help to clarify the truth, nor help us correctly analyze the essence of things. The reason why Japan covered up aggression, evaded history, refused to reflect on itself and lacked repentance was by no means the work of a few rulers, but had a broad social foundation. In particular, it should be pointed out that Japan’s cultural traditions have played an immeasurable role in this regard.

French thinker Montesquieu summarized the cultural characteristics of Japan as early as the 17th century: they are “stubborn, capricious, resolute and eccentric”, while “not paying attention to all dangers and disasters”. Montesquieu believes that Japan’s legislative spirit is cruel. They believe that only more severe cruelty can control cruelty. American anthropologist Ruth Benedict also analyzed in his famous book chrysanthemum and knife: “among the enemies the United States has fought with all its strength, the Japanese temper is the most elusive. This powerful opponent has very different behavior and thinking habits from us.” “Japanese people are extremely aggressive and gentle; militaristic and beautiful; arrogant, self-esteem and polite; stubborn and weak and fickle; docile and unwilling to be manipulated.” This analysis can be said to hit the nail on the head! The Japanese nation can show chrysanthemum like customs at home, and people pay attention to harmony and respect. Although this harmony and respect is based on the traditional order of hierarchy and authority. However, externally, they show the style of sword and fire, overbearing and aggressive, without scruples about secular moral and legal standards, and their goal is only attack and conquest.

and

are based on the influence of such cultural traditions. The Japanese form their own national character and produce a national mentality that is difficult for outsiders to understand. Taking the disaster caused by the war as an example, the Japanese people’s attitude towards domestic and foreign affairs is quite different. Externally, he evades responsibility, has an ambiguous attitude, refuses to reflect, and lacks repentance. Internally, they share a common hatred of the enemy, weep bitterly, persevere and uphold justice. Since 1946, every August 7 and 9, citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, have held grand memorial ceremonies. When the bell of the Peace Memorial Park spread through the Japanese islands through radio waves, the whole of Japan was immersed in extraordinary grief. Various protests and petitions continued one after another. The scale of its activities, the depth of mourning emotion and the excitement of people’s emotions can be said to exceed any political activities in Japan. As 400000 war victims in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they should certainly be sacrificed. However, shouldn’t the tens of millions of Asian people slaughtered and maimed by Japanese militarism be thanked and apologized? The responsibility for the tragedy in Hiroshima and Nagasaki should be investigated, but the Japanese people rarely calmly think about such an obvious and extremely simple question: will the United States throw atomic bombs at Japan for no reason? If Japan had not first provoked this war of aggression and spread the war to Southeast Asia and even the other side of the Pacific, posing a great threat to world peace and the fate of mankind, could Hiroshima and Nagasaki suffer such a tragic fate? Who is the real initiator of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki tragedies?

if further analyzed, this almost paranoid and fanatical national emotion of the Japanese people is actually the result of the distortion of Japan’s traditional culture under the national will for a long time.

because Japan is an island country surrounded by the sea and poor in resources. Therefore, the sinister, closed and isolated natural environment requires a belief or religion to unite the whole nation. Since the Meiji era, the Japanese government has taken great pains to transform the “Shinto”, which originally belonged to the people and did not have a unified God, into the national consciousness of “one system for all ages and a sacred imperial country”. The emperor has become the highest symbol and supreme honor of the “divine country”. Through administrative means, the Japanese government has generally established shrines in various regions to worship the Royal ancestral spirits, and institutionalized them through special rituals and comprehensive sacrifice and worship activities. As a result, this primitive religious worship has been interpreted into the mainstream culture through the national will, penetrated into daily life, and become the spiritual pillar of the Japanese people, It is still playing an influential role. On the daySamurai culture plays an extremely important role in the traditional culture of this. In the samurai culture, loyalty to the king is the most important essence. Real Samurai should have the courage to die for the country and for the king. Only in this way can death embody its honor and value, and be worshipped by later generations as “the spirit of protecting the country”, otherwise it is “dog death” (in Japanese, it means death without cost). After the Meiji Restoration, the samurai culture gradually degenerated into the bushido spirit of loyal to the emperor and working for militarism through the national will.

take the Yasukuni shrine as an example. It was built in 1869 (the second year of Meiji). It was originally used to offer sacrifices to the souls of the soldiers of the emperor’s army who died in the Meiji Restoration civil war. Therefore, it is also called “soul summoning society”. In 1874, Emperor Meiji personally visited the shrine to worship the dead of soldiers, which made the soul summoning society obtain an unprecedented honor in history. In 1889, the soul summoning shrine was officially renamed as Yasukuni Shrine, which became a shrine under the jurisdiction of the state and the headquarters of “national Shinto”. It played an extremely important role in the unity of faith and spirit of the Japanese people. The 1930s. With the rapid expansion of Japanese fascist forces, Yasukuni Shrine has also become a tool for Japanese militarism to incite war and appease the people.

in the book “Yasukuni issue” written by Professor Takahashi Jaya of the University of Tokyo, Japan, the Yasukuni Shrine not only worships class a war criminals accused of “undermining peace” in the Far East Military Court (Tokyo Trial), such as the notorious Japanese fascists, former prime ministers Hideki Tojo, hiroda honyi and Ichiro Hiranuma, Former army generals shigero Ishigaki, Meijin meizhilang, Kenji toyohara, ishigen Matsui, taro Kimura, and kojikuo sho; former Navy General takeno Xiushen; former Army lieutenant general Takeo Zhang; and former foreign minister Toshio Maude, and others. They also offered sacrifices to more than 1000 class B and class B soldiers who were prosecuted and sentenced to death for violating the law of war during the war and who were defeated in Japan, at home and abroad, and at the United Nations Class C war criminals. They are regarded as the “heroes who protect the country” of the great Japanese Empire and receive the admiration and comfort of the people as Japan’s national heroes. In the eyes of the Japanese people, the Yasukuni Shrine has naturally become the spiritual symbol of the Japanese nation. At the same time, it is also a historical witness to record that the Daiwa nation, under the inspiration and encouragement of the emperor, has opened up territory, enriched the country and strengthened the army and competed for hegemony in the world. In the Second World War, although Japan suffered heavy military defeat, the national ideology with “Shinto” as the core was not fundamentally touched. Can the Japanese cultivated under such a national ideology and distorted cultural tradition still look at history objectively, and can they calmly reflect deeply and sincerely repent their mistakes and responsibilities?

,

,

and

in Japan, there is an argument that dominates public opinion and public sentiment, that is, the Chinese government and the Chinese people always criticize the Japanese Prime Minister and senior officials for paying homage because there is a “joint sacrifice of class a war criminals” in the Yasukuni Shrine. The purpose is to thoroughly investigate Japan’s war responsibility. The Japanese themselves have always believed that the so-called “war responsibility” is actually two points: first, Japan’s responsibility for the failure of the American war; Second, the war responsibility of Japan after 1928 investigated by the Tokyo trial. Therefore, “the Yasukuni issue originated from the criticism of China and South Korea and did not become its problem at all before that.” (Tetsuya Takahashi: the issue of Yasukuni, page 43, Sanlian bookstore) in fact, the Chinese government and people’s criticism of the Japanese Prime Minister’s open visit to the Yasukuni shrine is not to criticize the Yasukuni shrine as a religious legal person, but that after knowing the well-known fact that the Yasukuni Shrine jointly enshrines some Japanese fascist war criminals, The Japanese prime minister still openly visits the Yasukuni Shrine. If he does not expose and criticize such wrong political behavior, it is tantamount to acquiescence that the war launched by Japan is a non aggressive war. The war suffering suffered by China and Asian countries and the just act of resisting Japanese fascism have not been upheld! Such a naked revival of Japanese militarism has naturally been condemned and criticized by China, South Korea, Singapore, Britain, the United States, Russia and other countries.

,

,

and

, according to the “* * e” figures published by the Yasukuni Shrine, the 2 million 500 thousand most of the sacrifices were “the Sina incident”, that is, the Sino Japanese War and the “Great East Asia war”, namely the Pacific War. It can be said that without these wars, there could be no colonial rule by Japan, Korea, Nanyang islands and Northeast China. In other words, the Japanese Empire acquired large colonies through these wars and established a modern colonial empire. Therefore, once the Japanese government and people reflect and repent, it is tantamount to admitting the injustice of the Japanese Qing Dynasty, Japan Russia, the Sino Japanese War of 1894-1895 and the Pacific War. As the spiritual pillar of the great Japanese Imperial militarism, the Yasukuni shrine will collapse, and the 2.5 million dead worshipped in the Yasukuni Shrine, They are no longer the so-called “heroes who protect the country” of the Daiwa nation and the “gods” who devote themselves to the country, but a group of war machines who work for the emperor and serve as cannon fodder, and a group of executioners who are bloodthirsty and kill the people of all countries. As a result, the holy emperor of the eternal glory of the great Japanese Empire will become a sinner for thousands of years, and the spiritual pillar of maintaining Japan’s national system will be shaken. However, after all, concealment and deception can not replace history. Debts must be paid. How to solve this thorny problem left over by history really tests every Japanese politician and hundreds of millions of Japanese people.
