War Criminals Live with Honor
I have thought that Japanese war criminals lived quietly after the war. But, in Japan, it is no longer the case. They get on their high horse. Human beings are not perfect living creatures. It is natural for us to make mistakes. But the very attitude of a person after a mistake tells the fact very well. Mayuzumi's case is a good example and the tip of the iceberg, for sure.
War Criminals Live a Happy Life
Today's big problem in the Japanese society is that war criminals live happily. They have the right to exist unless they are sentenced to death. There is no problem as long as they live as ordinary people. In fact, they seek out power and honor and their dreams are realized. War criminals have enemies not only in foreign countries but also among Japanese people. It's hurting and hurtful. But they should know that they get what they deserve and that there is no reason why outspoken people are silenced and why innocent people are harassed.
Although there is a variety of examples, let me talk about Mayuzumi's case.
Vivisection to Whale Slaughter, from Cannons to
It is painful for older people to try anything new. On he other hand, it is nice without limit to show one's experience from the past. Surprisingly, Mayuzumi got the job of whaling.
at a German port in 1937
For over 8000 years, the two flue harpoon was the primary weapon used in whaling around the world.
Mayuzumi was working for a Japanese whaling company,
Kyokuyo Company Ltd. He was the manager of the whaling department.
Svend Foyn successfully patented and pioneered the exploding harpoon and gun based on Erik Eriksen's idea and design. Euro-American whalers were now equipped to hunt faster and more powerful species, such as the rorquals. Because rorquals sank when they died, later versions of the exploding harpoon injected air into the carcass to keep it afloat.
A modern harpoon usually consists of a deck-mounted launcher (mostly a cannon) and a projectile which is a large harpoon connected to a thick rope. The spearhead is shaped in a manner which allows it to penetrate the thick layers of whale blubber and stick in the flesh. It has sharp spikes to prevent the harpoon from sliding out. Thus, by pulling the rope with a motor, the whalers can drag the whale back to their ship.
War against Australia Continues
On January 15, 2008,
the Federal Court of Australia ruled that the Japanese whaling fleet is breaking Australian law, and has issued an injunction to stop its activities.
The court says it is satisfied that the Japanese whaling fleet, controlled by Japanese company
Kyodo Senpaku Kaisha, has contravened numerous sections of the Environment Protection Act by killing and injuring Antarctic minke and fin whales in the Australian whale sanctuary.
It has ordered that it be restrained from continuing whaling.
A spokesman for
the Fisheries Agency of Japan, Mr Hideki Moronuki, has told the
ABC he is not in a position to comment on the ruling because Australia's claim to Antarctic waters is not recognised by the international community.
He says the case is a domestic matter for Australia.
Diversion of Catcher Boats to Military Use
During WWII, catcher boats were used as
submarine chasers or
minesweepers. In Japan, 6
factory ships were used as
transport vessels by the navy in addition to 95 catcher boats. All of the 6 factory ships and 67 catcher boats were sunk during the war.
The Royal Navy's flower class corvettes, which had been built in reference to catcher boats, were sold to other countries after the war. They were used as catcher boats in Japan after the war, too.

Hypotheses are included.
I never thought that I would reach the whaling issue when I examined war crimes. But now that I know the fact in Japanese whaling, I am convinced that Japanese whaling fleets are detachment force of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force. The reasons are as follows.
Camouflaged Military Activities
As we understand the war very well when we look back at the WWII, the war is the fight between human beings in the end. No matter how much amount of resources and funds the army has, they are almost powerless without experienced soldiers. The newest weapons are easily copied with materials and their designs, but soldiers are not. Excellent soldiers need a lot of time for training and brushing up weapon skills. And battle experience is indispensable, too.
However, military training necessarily catches the notice of neighboring countries. In case of war, particularly in the case of a war of aggression, it is critical to put the enemy off its guard. On this point, whaling fleets offer great training areas.
Fin whales are convenient targets for combat exercise. Harpoon whaling is actually the firing drill.
Slaughter of whales is actually the vivisection training.
Tanegashima Space Center is actually the test launch site for
intercontinental ballistic missiles.
Surface-to-air missiles are
solid fuel rockets. And the launching test is carried out at
the Uchinoura Space Center.
The Lunar Orbit Explorer "KAGUYA" (SELENE) was launched by the H-IIA Launch Vehicle No.13 on September 14, 2007 (JST) from the Tanegashima Space Center.
The M-V-7 rocket was launched on September 22, 2006 from the Uchinoura Space Center in Kagoshima Prefecture.
Deception in the Military Expenditure
There is a big problem in
the Japanese military expenditure. First of all, the definition of "military expenditure" is ambiguous.
Deception in the Operational Chain of Command
- Military pension expenses are not included in the total military expenditure. They are included in the military expenditures in other countries in general. And the total military expenses are not clear in Japan.
The Ministry of Defense says that they are not responsible for the military pensions because those soldiers worked not for them but for the defunct Imperial Japanese Army. I can't help laughing at it.
The Japanese military expenditure does not include
the Japan coast guard expenses. Its budget is said to be about 1.8 billion dollars. But the detail is almost incomprehensible. Pension expenditure in this agency should be counted as the military expenditure. Nowadays, the Japanese patrol boats are equipped with machine guns. In other countries, coastal guard expenditure is included in the military expenditure.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department has
The budget for
the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency was about 1.7 billion dollars in 2004. There are some military expenses in the budget of
the Science and Technology Agency.
It is doubtful whether these budgets reflect the real situation.
Japan is the sixth largest country in terms of the military expenditure. But if the circumstances above are taken into consideration, Japan would be the second largest military country.
According to the article 80 of the Self-Defense Forces Law, the Japan Coast Guard is operated under command of the defense minister in times of emergency. In fact, the Japan Coast Guard is part of the Ministry of Defense.
Japanese police may be regarded as the municipal police. But it is actually
the national police because it is commanded by not the prefectural public safety commission but
the National Police Agency and because the senior officials of the prefectural police are government officials.
Deception in Whaling and Deep Sea Fishing
Fishing vessels including
whalers are used as
naval ships in wartime. In peacetime, inspection on fishing vessels is reduced and delivery of secret material and funds is easy. Today, delivery at sea has become easier thanks to
the GPS. It is said that Japanese people like to eat
seafood, but I strongly feel that they are led by the government. For example, menus are always seafood at company dinner parties.
In any case, deep sea fishery is important for Japan as
the sailors reserve for the future war. Japan's worst enemy in the deep sea fishery is whales. The less whales are in the ocean, the more small fish fishermen can catch. The more fish are in the sea, the more excuses Japan may get for the expansion of ocean fishing. And then Japan will reinforce the virtual marine forces reserves. It will be easier for Japan to research oceans, to gather information about oceans and to do intelligence activities as well as subversive activities in some countries.
Countries around the world created
exclusive economic zones and tried to ban whaling. They did so not only from the point of marine resources. They have been worried about Japan's blatant provocations.
Japan will never cooperate with the world on whaling issue until it abandons its ambition to become the number one empire in the world.

I happened to read this Myanmar news. According to this site, it covers Myanmar and Southeast Asia, providing in-depth news and information to international readers. It is published by an independent, nonprofit media organization. It was established in 1993 by Burmese journalists living in exile and is not affiliated with any political organization or government. The story really surprised me. There can be no doubt about that. So, let me introduce it here.
Japanese Idea about the Defeat in the War
The article drove me home how much Japanese people confuse war with sports. In sports participation is more significant than winning. Victory or defeat is simply the outcome of games. It is important for all the athletes to do their best.
Japanese War Crimes:
The Rape of Nanking image
In the war, however, it is not the case. Ordinary nations never wage war. When a criminal nation emerges, it tortures people and invades other countries. Then neighboring countries have to send troops for their self-defense and assistance. The gap of military power between them may determine which country wins. But their crimes against humanity as well as justice in action will be engraved in people's hearts through history. The empires which had been built with barbaric atrocities ended in tragedies.
Genghis Khan once complacently said that
it was his greatest joy to destroy an enemy empire and rape its princesses.
Vandals that once stormed
the Western Roman Empire have disappeared completely.
It is very sad that most Japanese can hardly distinguish war from sports.
IRRAWADDY December 2007
A Charity’s Checkered Past
A report prepared in June 1947 by
US army intelligence described Sasakawa as “a man potentially dangerous to Japan’s political future…He has been squarely behind
Japanese military policies of aggression and anti-foreignism for more than 20 years. He is a man of wealth and not too scrupulous about using it. He chafes for continued power. He is not above wearing any new cloak that opportunism may offer.”
Two Japanese foundations active in Burma have a past linked to
World War II far-right war criminals
On a cold December day in 1945, a truck drove up to
Sugamo Prison in Tokyo. On the back of the truck was a man in his mid-forties shouting “Banzai! Banzai!” accompanied by a brass band playing
the Imperial Navy march.
The man was
Ryoichi Sasakawa, a suspected Class A war criminal, and he had come to give himself up to the Americans, who had begun interning leaders of the Japanese war machine in Sugamo. He had spent the war years doing business in Shanghai, supplying the Japanese army with whatever it needed and plundering China for gold, diamonds and other minerals which he sold to the military.
His main companion at that time had been
Yoshio Kodama, an ultra-rightist who later became a main kuromaku, or backroom power broker, for
Japan’s organized crime groups. After the war, they were cellmates at Sugamo.
Twenty years later, Sasakawa was the head of a multinational foundation, named after himself, which funded health and educational programs mainly in Asia. He claimed to be a man of peace, and one branch of his philanthropical empire was even named “
The Sasakawa Peace Foundation.” When he died in 1995, his deepest regret was said to have been that he never got
the Nobel Peace Prize.
From the very beginning, Burma was one of the countries where the Sasakawa Foundation and its sister organization,
the Nippon Foundation, were especially active. Apart from being an associate of Kodama, Sasakawa was also close to
Nobusuke Kishi, the Japanese prime minister from 1957 to 1960—and, in the late 1940s, also a prisoner in Sugamo. Kishi led the once influential Burma Lobby in Japan, and the Japan-Burma Association counted among its members 11 trading companies allowed to operate in various aid projects in Burma prior to 1988.
In more recent years, the Sasakawa and Nippon foundations have supported seminars organized in Rangoon by
the Myanmar [Burma] Institute of Strategic and International Studies on “Research on International Economy in Myanmar” as well as various health projects. The Sasakawa Foundation has also in part financed
the Myanmar Times, a weekly newspaper established in March 2000, which the Australian monthly
The Diplomat in its November-December 2007 issue quoted critics as describing as “little more than a cheerleader for the junta.”
Yoichi Yamaguchi, the former Japanese ambassador to Burma who recently caused an outcry by openly supporting the regime’s brutal suppression of the monks’ anti-junta demonstrations in Rangoon and elsewhere, has also been linked to some of the activities of Sasakawa’s outfits. On December 14, 2003,
the New Light of Myanmar reported that
then intelligence chief Gen Khin Nyunt had received Yamaguchi together with
Nippon Foundation president Yohei Sasakawa, Ryoichi’s youngest son who now heads the philanthropical empire, after his father—the accused war criminal—passed away 12 years ago.
What had happened? Had Sasakawa really become a man of peace? It is hard to believe, given his (to say the least) checkered past.
A native of Osaka, he was born in 1899 into a family of wealthy sake brewers. In the 1930s, he led an ultranationalist group called
Kokusui Taishuto, or the “Patriotic People’s Mass Party,” which grew to 15,000 members. Each one of them wore a dark uniform fashioned after
Benito Mussolini's Italian Blackshirts. He also had his own airplanes, which transported supplies for the Japanese army.
In 1939, Sasakawa used one of them to fly to Rome, where he met Mussolini. Years later, he expressed regret about not meeting another European leader at that time: “
Hitler sent me a cable asking me to wait for him, but unfortunately I didn’t have time.”
The problem after the war was that the American occupiers in Japan badly needed the extreme right to counter the leftist movement, which was growing strong in the late 1940s. So, in 1948, Sasakawa, Kodama and Kishi were all released and allowed to rebuild their former organizations.
Kodama took care of the yakuza, while Kishi became prime minister—and Sasakawa,
through his powerful connections, secured a monopoly on the only legally permitted gambling in Japan at the time: motorboat racing. As a result, Sasakawa became immensely wealthy—and continued to back various extreme right-wing causes. In 1974,
Time magazine quoted Sasakawa as saying, “I’m the world’s wealthiest fascist.”
At home in Japan, he supported rightist organizations with links to the yakuza:
the Zen-Nihon Aikokusha Dantai Kaigi, or the “All Japan Federation of Patriotic Organizations,” and
the Seinen Shiso Kenkyu Kai, the curiously named “Youth Ideology Research Organization.”
Internationally, he was linked to
the World Anti-Communist League, which brought together Asian rightists, an array of Latin American fascists including
Pastor Coronel, the chief of Paraguay’s dreaded secret police, members of Croatia’s
Ustasha movement which had collaborated with Germany and Italy during the war, former
Iron Guards from Romania, Ukrainian Nazis and former members of various US intelligence agencies. In the Romanian Revolution of 1989, the revolutionary flag indicated the Japanese rising sun flag.
And, then the charities. All the money was, of course, taken from unlucky Japanese gamblers, but it was Sasakawa who basked in fame and publicity. His children continue to reap praise for distributing funds which are not their own—and the board of trustees of the Nippon Foundation still includes Yukio Kageyama and Toshio Takeuchi, prominent members of
the Japan Motorboat Racing Association.
Sasakawa’s special relationship with Burma is no coincidence. It was established when
Gen Ne Win was in power, and he had been trained by the Japanese secret police, the Kempetai, during World War II. Today, Sasakawa’s foundations are apparently comfortable dealing with the Burmese junta—which should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the origin and background of what must be two of the world’s most curious set of “charitable foundations.”

I'm not interested in baseball very much. I like sports, but I'm too busy to enjoy Japanese fixed games. When I half listened to the radio, the news about Luis Gonzalez's doping scandal caught my ear. Japan seemed to bully foreigners again. Soon, I checked the internet information. But Gonzalez had been dead just before that. I was confused. In fact, there were two Gonzalezs.
1979 ----- He was born in
2004-2006 He played in Major League Baseball for the Colorado Rockies.
2007 ----- Gonzalez became the fifth Venezuelan player to play in
the Japan's Central League.
On 26th May, 2008, Gonzalez was accused of violating the anti-doping policy in
Nippon Professional Baseball, resulting in a 1-year ban.
The Yomiuri Giants shows intention to place a waiver on him after such incident.
Gonzalez was tested April 30 and denied use of any illegal drugs when he was interviewed by a club representative May 19. Yomiuri plans to release the 28-year-old player shortly.
Gonzalez played for the Rockies from 2004-06. He played in 32 games for the Giants this season and with two homers and 17 RBIs.
1975 ----- He was born in
He was a Venezuelan right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for the Chicago Cubs (1997–1998), Tampa Bay Devil Rays (2003–2004), Boston Red Sox (2005), New York Mets (2006) and Milwaukee Brewers (2006). In his rookie season he led the Cubs with 11 wins, but he was unable to continue that success in later seasons. He was known as Jeremi Gonzalez until he was traded to the Brewers in 2006, at which time he informed the team of the proper spelling.
Baseball Level: Japan|
Greatest Catch Ever
Gonzalez died after being struck by lightning in Punta Palma,
Zulia on May 25, 2008.
CARACAS, Venezuela -- Former major league pitcher Geremi Gonzalez, who played for five major league teams including the Milwaukee Brewers, was killed by a lightning strike in his native Venezuela on Sunday. He was 33.
Emergency management official Herman Bracho said Monday that Gonzalez was struck by lightning at a beach.
Venezuela has been under the influence of Japan. In the light of the date of construction, it is highly probable that Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, a great Japanese unifier, constructed Caracas on July 25, 1567.
Caracas is spelled in the Japanese as "karakasu". And the word "karakasu" means "to try hard" or "to accomplish" in the Nagoya dialect or Mino dialect in Japan. Those regions are the place where Tokugawa Ieyasu originally ruled.
The coincidence didn't stop there.
Japan adheres to the play on words. I suspected that there was another Japan's conspiracy. I glanced over some articles and the uniform number of Luis Gonzalez jumped to my eyes.
His number was 49. Then I suspected that
another Gonzalez's number was 94. Oh my God! I guessed right.
The numbers 4 and 9 are considered unlucky in Japanese: 4, pronounced shi, is a homophone for "death"; 9, when pronounced ku, is a homophone for "suffering."
Recently I have been able to predict Japan's play on words. What a corrupt country Japan is! There must be some secret threatening messages to some people or to some organizations. I begin to investigate it.
A drastic change of the uniform numbers for 25 players
Tatsunori Hara drastically changed the uniform numbers of as many as 25 players in 2006. The uniform number is very important for a professional baseball player. If it is changed frequently, he will feel that he is a mere ordinary worker. Young baseball fans won't try to remember the numbers of baseball players any longer. It cannot be denied that Hara had a hidden intention. At that time the uniform number of Luis Gonzalez was changed from
number 5 to
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is the root cause of the misfortune.
This time, it took a considerable time to find it.
The Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) is a supranational and intergovernmental union that will unite two existing customs unions –
the Andean Community – as part of a continuing process of South American integration. It is modelled on
the European Union. The UNASUR
Constitutive Treaty was signed on May 23, 2008, at the Third Summit of Heads of State, held in
Japan was not satisfied with the result. The development of the integration of South American countries is critically important for Japan. Japan's ax to grind came apart. Japan has waged an anti-US and anti-Chinese campaign behind the stage. Japan literally thundered at leaders of countries concerned.

The 4th Tokyo International Conference on African Development kicked off on May 28, 2008 in
Yokohama, Japan. There was a variety of voices and opinions in the Japanese media. But in fact their arguments are mostly off the mark. To be more exact, they are intentionally confusing public opinion.
What kind of country leaders came to Japan?
Japanese media say that many national leaders came to Japan. Japanese Prime Minister
Yasuo Fukuda met 40 national leaders. But their real status is unclear. And there is no list of attendees in the Japanese news. As I had expected, it was not until I read
the Japantimes English news that I knew how many countries there are in Africa and how many countries had sent delegates. Japanese newspapers seem to deceive readers by giving complicated logics and misleading contents. English-language newspapers in Japan are better only if they are compared to Japanese newspapers (IPS) (ASAHI).

Unnatural Word Coinage
As far as I know, there are three forums that are held by a non-African country for African nations.
Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC)
The names of Chinese and Indian forums are natural and easy to remember. On the other hand, TICAD is a very strange word coinage. This word has completely misled Japanese people even in its Japanese expression. Most Japanese cannot guess the original name from the five initial letters. Some people mistake the conference for one of UN-sponsored conferences.
Africa - India Forum Summit
Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD)
A conference not for Africa but for Japan
Japan's intention is to take advantage of African countries' cooperation to
push Japan's important agendas forward. Three of them are to become
a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council, to get
an advantageous framework after the Kyoto Protocol and to get African countries' support for Japan's proposals at
the Group of Eight summit Fukuda hosts in Hokkaido in July .
There are some reasons why a country holds an international forum. International problems are originally between two countries. And negotiations are carried out between the two countries. However, as history has shown, another problems such as bribes, betrayals and disclosure of secret, may come out one after another. So, it is convenient for countries that have similar international problems to discuss at the same meeting. This symbolic institution is the UN.
But rapidly developing countries such as China and India have a variety of international problems with neighboring countries. They don't have enough time to negotiate with more than 50 countries. But The UN is not an appropriate venue for such negotiations. Some countries have nothing to do with the negotiations.
And, now that Japan has had a long history with most African countries, Japan has no urgent problems with African nations. So, TICAD may be nothing more than a nuisance for the world.
TICAD or SHICAT
When I heard the word TICAD for the first time, I only remembered one very dirty Japanese slang "SHICAT" or shikato in Roman letters. I have never heard of the slang in everyday conversation. I only see the slang in popular message boards, particularly among spam postings.
It is open secret that
the secret police organize rogue internet users only to ostracize undesirable people. As I had expected, the word "SHICAT" is said to have appeared for the first time in the police notebook.
The ugly word means to bully someone or to leave someone out. The word has gradually become popular among rogue Internet users since 1993 when TICAD started. The word matches very well the real intention of the Japanese government.

Suzuki is the chairman of 16 parliamentary groups in
the Japanese Diet that promote relations between Japan and African nations. He controls Japanese diplomacy in Africa. It is said that he took some funny Africans such as
Osuman Sankhon and
John Muluaka to Japan. He was scurrying about on and behind the stage of
the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD).
If there had not been the international conference in Tokyo, I would have almost forgotten this strange foreign entertainer. He lacks talent.
I believe that there are more interesting African entertainers everywhere. There must be some reasons why the Japanese media lionize him.
Once I was interested in him. It was when I heard the brutal conflicts in Africa financed with so called, "blood diamonds". The name of
the Sierra Leone rebel group leader, reminded me of Sankhon. Their names were similar.
African Origin of Japanese
Japanese politician arrested
I heard the name of Sankoh for the first time when I watched a TV program about diamond trading. I had thought that diamond had nothing to do with terrorism and it was really a shocking story for me.
There were rogue figures around him including
Muammar al-Gaddafi, the de facto leader of
Charles Taylor, the former president of
Sierra Leone is
surrounded by Guinea and Liberia. Osuman Sankhon was born in
Sankhon was invited to Japan as a double of Sankoh, who Japan could not invite. Japan lionized Sankhon on behalf of Sankoh. Sankoh was arrested in 2000 and died during the trial in 2003. Since then Sankhon has seldom appeared in the media. In fact, there was no longer any reason for him to be conspicuous in Japan.
2m-tall African may be simply well known for his height. To tell the truth, I knew nothing about him. In fact, he has done a variety of things behind the stage. He is long on scandals including
Ebola cultures and
Bobby Ologun is a Nigerian-born TV personality,
tarento in Japan, and a
K-1, mixed martial artist. He came to Japan in 1995. In 2006, at his entertainment agency office, Bobby had a scuffle with Muluaka.

In bizarre murder cases in Japan, almost all the criminals say that they killed people at random. It is unthinkable that criminals say completely the same thing. This testimony helps the police, prosecutors, the court and lawyers. They can cut corners in the court procedure. Criminals themselves are also helped. With psychiatric evaluation, there would be any kind of court decisions.
There is more to it than that. It is open to question why the media go so far as reporting such minor matters. In fact, somebody may be deliberately killed while others are killed at random in order to cover up the murder. And people can't know whether they really died or not.
The murder was set in action just after the end of Hillary's concession speech. It means the murder was a deliberate planned murder.
Before dawn on Jun 8 (Japan time), Hillary finished the concession speech in Washington D.C.
Early morning on June 8 (Japan time), the criminal left home to Tokyo driving a rent-a-car for several hours. On the way, he posted one murder announcement after another on an Internet cellular phone message board.
Around half past noon on June 8 (Japan time), he arrived at Akihabara and carried out the murder.
There have been too many incidents that seem to be fabricated from heinous crimes to bizarre cases in Japan.
The Japanese government has a motive to fabricate crimes. Well, I would describe it in a slightly different way, that fabrication has become
the national traditional event in Japan.
Stalking harassment by the police, fire fighters and rent-a-car companies is not unusual in the Japanese society.
I have been harassed by them frequently. In fact ambulances that are assumed to save people's lives often chase healthy and innocent citizens. I have taken a lot of pictures of such ambulances.
The criminal at Akihabara rented a car at a remote rent-a-car office. And the rent-a-car office refused to give any information to the media, to say nothing of the video tape record.
Words and expressions of the criminal, witnesses and relevant people are awkward and strange.
They are obviously retired police officers or people employed by the security police for espionage. In the past, they used such cunning tricks that people could hardly see through the tricks. But nowadays they seem to show off their tricks deliberately.
The sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway in 1995 is often said to be an event fabricated by the police. In fact, few victims appear in the news. Policemen are busy on stretching plastic sheets to cover up victims. TV cameras avoid people's faces and we don't know who they really are in the news. I don't know such a country except Japan.
Many victims at Akihabara
We are fed up with fabricated events. But this time there were quite a few victims. It is assumed that many people were killed or wounded in order to attract Americans and the US media. In fact Japanese minor events are ignored however they are heinous. But this time, Akihabara incident has been reported for a few days. On this point, the crime location "Akihabara" was deliberately chosen in order to draw Americans' attention just because it is a household name also in the US. This media coverage may reduce Hillary's news a little.
There is one more purpose. The criminal intentionally posted crime messages on an Internet cellular phone message board. The media enthusiastically reported the Internet posting. To tell the truth, Internet stalkers mobilized by the security police to silence outspoken people are losing power. So, the government may try to regain their power again by this news.

This time I investigated the relations between Japan and Jews. At first I looked for a suitable symbol that stands for their relations. But I was really surprised when I looked at a website with a bizarre symbol. It is a combination of
Star of David. It symbolizes nothing less than a
holocaust. If you need further information, please visit
some Wikipedia sites. And let me move my story forward.
This religious organization is a detachment force of the Japanese government for militarism promotion.
The central government, the control authority and politicians who have special relations with the organization including Prime Minister
Yasuo Fukuda and former prime minister
Junichiro Koizumi should express their opinions at the press conference. The international community will never accept such provocative relations. The religious organization seems to have a lot of assets. People's taxes and slush funds may be poured into the organization. If my story is true, it is really a heinous crime against humanity.
The relations between Japan and Israel are perplexing.
Generally speaking, Japan has had special relations with Jews five times in its history. Japan has always taken advantage of them. Sometimes it succeeded and sometimes it didn't. Unfortunately, however, Japanese historical records are considerably misleading due to cover-ups and fabrications of the facts. Even if information is gathered objectively, the result often turns out to be wrong. So please read my comments with a grain of salt to some extent and confirm them by consulting other information sources.
Japanese are Jewish?
(1) around 7th century
As Japanese history around 7th century is related to Japan's roots, it is very controversial. So, let me discuss Japanese history in the second period first of all.
(2) around 16th century
World War II
(5) since the end of WWII
Around 16th Century
It is said that the Jew who first came to Japan was Luise de Almeida. He came to Japan for trade in 1552. He earned a lot of wealth with the trade business between
Macau and Japan. He was a
new Christian. "New Christian" refers to
Iberian Jews and Muslims who converted to
Roman Catholicism and their known baptized descendants. Quite a few new Christians are thought to have come to Japan.
Heinrich Burger was appointed by the Dutch government as the assistant of
Philipp Franz von Siebold on the isle of
Nagasaki, Japan) for the "natural research" in Japan. He was Jewish. His father was a merchant.
Africans came to Japan, too. According to the record, the African who first came to Japan in the 16th century was
Yasuke. He was a missionary slave. But a Japanese samurai lord employed him as a security guard. The lord told his men to wash Yasuke in the basin. And he knew that his skin was originally black.
When the lord was surrounded by his enemy, he decided to commit a ritual suicide and told Yasuke to get out of the place. But Yaske was captured by the enemy lord. Fortunately, however, the lord didn't think that Yasuke was a human being and sent him to Christian missionaries.
At that time, many foreigners came to Japan. But China restricted Japanese trade. China had been annoyed by
Japanese pirates. On the other hand, Japan tolerated pirates in
the East China Sea.

New Christians and
Like Jews, Japanese try to have a double standard when they face spiritual persecution. The ordeal of Kakure Kirishitans is well known among Japanese. But there were Jews who were unwillingly converted to
Roman Catholicism due to religious oppression in Portugal and Spain. They were called "New Christians".
These Jews sought new land and quite a few of them went to East Asia by ship. They were different from immigrants who went to the US for American dreams. They were determined to go to Japan in order to survive.
In fact Jews and Christian missionaries were different. Jews had to think about living in Japan permanently while Christian missionaries intended to return to their home country with remarkable results. Jews accepted almost everything in Japan.
Similarity between Jewish and Japanese Religious Beliefs
Jewish attitudes towards sexuality are similar to those of Japanese.
Jews think that human labor is sacred while Christians think that labor is sin. Japanese think that labor is originally a contribution to the community. Jews are tolerant of other religions. From these points of view, they are almost Japanese.
The Merchant of Venice and
the Economic Animal
Jews and Japanese are similar from the economic point of view, too. They are really
realists. They are good at making money. And they are soon hated and persecuted. In a sense, it was natural that Jews had good relations with Japanese. Japanese merchants were no less shrewd than Jews and there was no reason for Japanese to hate Jews.
Expulsion Order against Christian Missionaries
The expulsion order did not necessarily mean a closed-door policy. It was
the regulation of trade rather than embargo. Nowadays the Japanese government manipulates foreign trade in collusion with
major trading firms. Such government's attitude is no different from that of the samurai government at that time. It was only a matter of time before Jewish merchants colluded with Japanese.
The term "Closed-door Policy" was coined in the late 19th century.
At that time, the country which wanted to ban the trade with some neighboring countries was not Japan but China. Trade with China was a lucrative business and local feudal lords in Japan were eager to trade with China. Ieyasu Tokugawa, the commander in chief of the entire samurai class, even asked British ships to come to Tokyo. But
British ships didn't visit Tokyo.
The trade between China and Japan was flourishing. The trade was mostly illegal and secret. But there must have been huge bribes between merchants and samurai lords.
The term "Closed-door Policy" was coined in the late 19th century when Japan gave up samurai system and introduced Western style government system.
Japan was forced to take a closed-door policy by Asian countries.
Throughout history, Japan was a nuisance for neighboring countries. The more foreigners know about Japan, the more they become anti-Japanese. At that time, Japanese immigrants lived in many places in Asia including China and South East Asia. Some Japanese were masterless samurai who had been defeated in the samurai war.
Japanese samurai were a nuisance to local people all the more they were popular, loyal and brave.
Japanese soon began to be ostracized. There was more to it than that. Samurai lords in Japan began to be afraid that Western Christians would colonize Japan in cooperation with Japanese expatriate samurai. A lot of samurai swords were distributed in Asian countries.
Japan is a military power all the time.
Unfortunately, it is true, in the early 17th century, Japan had the most guns in the world. Japan was the number one country in terms of the production of steel and guns. Japan exported a lot of guns to the Ottoman Empire.
International trade continued during the closed-door policy period.
The samurai government controlled and exploited the international trade. In reality
it was not a closed-door policy but a state-controlled trade policy. For example, kelp gathered around Hokkaido was transported to China through the Japanese archipelago and the Ryukyu Islands.
Japan created an astute foreign policy in cooperation with Jewish merchants to some extent.
If it is compared to the current trade system in Japan, the Japanese international trade during the samurai period can be well understood. Nowadays the Japanese international trade is mostly monopolized by a few
major Japanese trading firms. This situation is unusual. But for Japan it is somewhat traditional.
The samurai government was flourishing thanks to official revenues and secret bribes. When US ships forced Japan to normalize its foreign trade, samurai's control over Japan came to an end. The samurai government is said to have conducted trade with merchants who came from Netherlands. In fact those merchants often were Jewish merchants.
The similarity is critical.
Everybody knows that economics doesn't work in the Japanese business society. Stocks, commodity futures, foreign exchange, securities, real estate,・・・, everything is under the government's control. Huge profits are poured into the government's backdoor funds and official coffers. The government will never be able to go back to the original regular road. Japan has repeatedly gone into bankrupt in the past.
In the late 19th century, Japan was forced to normalize its economy by US ships. Then the Japanese government collapsed. Now the Japanese government is in the strong pressure of bureaucratic reform from the international community. Then there will be no way other than collapse in front of the Japanese government.
Fifty Jewish Families Lived in Yokohama in the 1860s.
At that time, Jewish merchants were relatively safer for Japanese counterparts. They were Diaspora Jews. So they didn't demand treaties. They had no intention to colonize Japan. They were rich for sure. There was a Jewish community in
the Russo-Japanese War broke out, about 100 Jews lived there.

The Rokumeikan era
The Japanese rule of conduct is based not on morality but
on calculation. Japanese are educated to follow the rule. For example they choose their close friends in the workplace, they consider the advantage and disadvantage of dealing with them. Sidetracked employees and those who are ignored by their bosses are alienated. Under the circumstances, the behavioral chain reaction immediately led to a totalitarian state. It was a matter of time before totalitarianism prevailed in Japan in the late 19th century and after WWII.
Japan's westernization was a national fraud. It simply wanted to take advantage of western diplomats by offering drink and beautiful women to them. The attitude of the Japanese government has been hardly changed.
Meiji Tokyo Earthquake and then
the First Sino-Japanese War
The Japanese government built a large two-story building in Tokyo in 1883. The building was called "Rokumeikan". It was to become a controversial symbol of Westernization at that time. In fact the building was originally a symbol of deception and also a symbol of insult. Officially speaking, it became famous for its parties and balls, which introduced many high-ranking Japanese to Western manners for the first time, and it is still a fixture in the cultural memory of Japan.
Rokumeikan at that time
a monument to Rokumeikan
The monument is embedded in the wall beside a staff entrance of a building. Office workers smoke around there.
Before that, Satsuma ex-samurai had waged
a rebellion in 1877. It had been defeated soon. And some of their land in Tokyo had been confiscated by the central government. A site was used for the building. But the name "Rokumeikan" was officially said to mean "Deer-cry Hall". But the name literally insinuated that Satsuma (today's Kagoshima prefecture) cried.
The dance hall was used to end
some unequal treaties with Western countries. Japan also wanted Western countries not to interfere in its policy to invade its neighboring countries.
But, to tell the truth, I have been doubtful about the history of this dance hall. Although its history is explained in many books, I didn't read any articles with regard to the end of the building. I thought that it had not been easy for the Japanese government to end the dance party or to destroy the building because the true intention of the government would be revealed. So, I investigated the ending of the dance party and I was surprised at some coincidences.
The dance hall was half-destroyed by an earthquake and dance party was suspended at the same time. The building was destroyed due to antiquated facilities in 1940, just a year before
the Attack on Pearl Harbor. The earthquake was the second biggest one in Tokyo for the past 140 years. It was an epicentral earthquake. Its timing was very finely tuned. It was an artificial earthquake. No doubt about it.
July 7, 1883
Rokumeikan was completed and entertainment for foreign diplomats started.
August 23, 1884
the Sino-French War broke out.
Gapsin Coup occurred. It was Japan's conspiracy. It was failed.
Japan and France have maintained a collusive relationship.
Mutsu Munemitsu launched a campaign to end
the unequal treaty status between Japan and Great Britain. The revision of the treaty was critical for Japan to go to war with China.
When the treaty revision was expected soon, Donghak peasants, a group which Japan had created beforehand, rose in revolt.
June 20, 1894
The Meiji Tokyo Earthquake occurred. Due to its damage, the dance party at the Rokumeikan was suspended.
As was expected, the Anglo-Japanese Treaty of Commerce and Navigation was signed by Britain and Japan. An obstacle to the war was removed.
Japan attacked China.
Jews are war sponsors for Japan.
Japanese get along with Jews. For them, business is business. And, of course, war is part of their business. Jews played an important role during the First Sino-Japanese War and the Russo-Japanese War. They supplied a lot of money to Japan.
Marcus Samuel, 1st Viscount Bearsted
Around the First Sino-Japanese War, a ghetto was established in Nagasaki. But, when the Russo-Japanese War ended, it began disappearing. The similarity of their ancient history was not good news to the Japanese government because they wanted to think that Japanese was the only superior people.
Samuel is not a well-known figure in Japan. But everybody knows his company. He is one of the founders of
Royal Dutch Shell. He was born into a Jewish family in London. His father ran a successful import-export business, M. Samuel & Co., trading with the Far East. During the First Sino-Japanese War, he helped the Japanese army by supplying food, petroleum, weapons and other military goods.
Jacob Henry Schiff was a German-born New York City banker and philanthropist, who helped finance, among many other things, the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Japanese military efforts against Tsarist Russia in the Russo-Japanese War. Schiff also saw this loan as a means of taking revenge, on behalf of the Jewish people, for the anti-Semitic actions of the Tsarist regime.
Jacob Schiff founded an investment bank, Kuhn, Loeb & Co., in 1867. The bank was merged with Lehman Brothers Holdings in 1977. But the firm filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on September 15, 2008.
In addition, it was a shame for Japan that they borrowed huge money from Jews and won the war. Jews may have forgotten it but Japanese cannot. On the other hand, Japan didn't need foreign investors' money as they increased the financial power and the power of production any more.
to be continued
Hypotheses are included.
The more I investigate the Japanese history, the more I find hideous facts. It does not mean that Japan is originally a hideous country. Every country has more or less dirty histories in the past. However, Japan has completely hidden inconvenient facts. When I think how much Japanese history has been manipulated, I have an awful feeling.
Japan emphasizes rote learning at school. If students are allowed to think deeply, some of them may detect facts. So, children are trained not to do unnecessary things. Japan has neither real scholarship, real culture nor real art. The Japanese society is full of prearranged performance. Professional games including sumo tournaments, horse races and baseball games are often fixed. In addition, spectators are often decoys. They don't pay, instead they are paid. On the face of it, those events are enthusiastic. But some people who know the reality are disgusted.
I think that Japan created Nazis. At least, Japan supported them behind the stage. Around the Russian Revolution, Japan did a variety of conspiracies. The conflict between Nazis and Jews was too convenient for Japan. Even today, Japan is making a huge profit with a variety of tricks. The Kyoto Protocol was one of them. Japanese politicians speak of "national interest". If unethical profits are said to be national interest, thefts are a respectable walk of life. It is a desirable life as long as they are not arrested. By no means!

The Russo-Japanese War
The Russo-Japanese War ended with an armistice agreement on September 1, 1905. But Japan couldn't understand the condition of the Treaty of Portsmouth. Japan's hope that they would be able to repay their huge debt to Jewish investors with reparations from Russia faded away. September 1 became the anniversary commemorating the end of the war. The day was actually the day Japan never wanted to remember. In 1923, the anniversary was written off. On the same day, the 1923 Great Kanto earthquake occurred. Since then, the day has become the "Disaster Preparedness Day". By the way, SEIROGAN is one of the most popular medicines in Japan. The medicine was invented during the war and the name of the medicine literally means "bullets to defeat Russia". Its trademark is the military trumpet.
The negotiation for the peace treaty started on September 1. But the Japanese government staged an incendiary uprising in Tokyo as a negotiation tool. The Japanese government was eager to extract a concession from Russia and the US. This kind of tricks have been frequently used in Japan.
Japan had financial difficulties from The Russo-Japanese War through WWII. Japan could not control the trade upheavals. The stable international revenue was reparations and continuing international payment was payment for international debts.
Japan borrowed huge money from Jews. On the other hand, Japan enjoyed huge reparations from China. The Boxer Protocol was an unequal treaty signed in 1901 between the Qing Empire of China and the Eight-Nation Alliance including Japan after China's defeat in the Boxer Rebellion. China had to repay the debts until 1938. Japan waited the deadline year.
If you think about a debt between two persons, you will understand the Japanese attitude very well. The lender never bullies the debtor as long as the debtor repays his or her debt. But, once the debt is paid off, the debtor will be able to save money. On the other hand there will be no obstacles for the previous lender to bully the previous debtor. It was one of the reasons why Japan launched full-scale aggression against China in 1937. This Japanese idea is really awful.
Exploiting Jews Again
Japan won three major wars such as the First Sino-Japanese War, the Russo-Japanese War and WWI. To tell the truth, although it was partly the result of Japan's efforts, it was the natural historical result. Japan borrowed money and went to war. Japan made a wise choice as if it had deliberately borrowed money. If Japan had had enough money to wage the war by itself, it would not have won the war so easily. In that sense, it can be said that Japan lost WWII because it waged the war by itself.
Strangely enough, money lenders are drawn willy-nilly into the war economy. If the borrower loses the war, the debt is likely to be unpaid. So, the lender gives full support to the debtor in terms of economy and politics. In the modern warfare, logistics decide the war. Japan collected funds from Jews and then took the Western financial society into their side. Japan understood it very well. But Japan would never kowtow to Jews. Pride didn't let them to do so any more.
Japanese often engage in wicked frauds. Sometimes they are almost impenetrable for foreigners. And such frauds have profound effect. Let me put one simple example here.
A rogue guy wants to go out with a beautiful girl. But he knows that he is not attractive enough. So, he forces his errand boy to bully her. Then he suddenly appears like a white knight and punches the bully. The bully deliberately loses the fight and runs away. Then the girl will thank him for that and there will be good opportunities for him to become her boyfriend.
The Fugu Plan was a scheme created in Imperial Japan centered around the idea of settling Jewish refugees escaping Nazi-occupied Europe in Japan's territories on the Asian mainland to Japan's benefit. The Plan was solidified in 1938.
The plotters believed that the Jews could be quite beneficial to Japan, but also quite dangerous. Therefore, the plan was named after the Japanese delicacy "fugu", a puffer-fish whose poison can kill if the dish is not prepared exactly correctly.
In the case of the plan, Jews are the beautiful girl and the Nazis are the errand boy. Japan is of course the rogue guy. But this plot was finally detected by Jews and the plan collapsed.
Shigenori Togo was Minister of Foreign Affairs for Japan at the very start and the very end of World War II. He was a typical government's puppet. His ancestors were Korean. He was born in Kagoshima, which had once been the rebellious region. His wife was a Jew. He was actually a convenient man. The Japanese government passed the buck to him. It tried to utilize his wife to elicit loans from Jewish investors. People in Kagoshima were ridiculed again.
His marriage seems to have been the government's order. Later, his son and grandsons were utilized by the government again.
In 1939, he became a vice-consul of the Japanese Consulate in Lithuania. He granted Jews visas on his own initiative, neglecting the Japanese government's orders. He is often called "Japanese Schindler". But I think it is an information manipulation and a typical Japanese double standard. His act can be considered as part of Japan's conspiracy in the Fugu Plan.
All the Jews Forced into Exile
During WWII, the Japanese government failed to exploit Jews. Jews became the nuisance.
In 1942 there were negotiations between Japan and Nazi Germany about how to deal with Jews.
Proposals were as follows.
On the face of it, this suggestion was made by Nazi Germany. But I am skeptical about the fact. In Japan, written records often show opposite facts. For example, when one decision is made by the board of directors in the Japanese company, they tell an employee to make a proposal document to the board regardless of his or her intention. According to the document, the employee is responsible although he or she had nothing to do with the decision.

The untold story
Looking back at Jewish history, persecution in Europe and Nazi holocaust seem to have been part of Japan's conspiracy. If the Fugu Plan had been successful, Japan could have concluded a peace treaty with the US with its territory maximized to the full.
