14 Japanese leaders convicted by an Allied tribunal as war criminals, was seen partly out of consideration of improving relations with China, with President Xi Jinping expected to visit Japan when it hosts a G20 summit.

Reuters still write stupid articles.

Yasukuni has been there long before WW2. Korean and Taiwanese were honored as well.

Toji Hideki, Yasukuni honored A-class criminal , who joined the cabinet and became Japanese prime minister after invasion to China. He has nothing to do with Nanjin incident.

The prime minister, Fumimaro Konoe, who was responsible for teaming up with Nazi and invasion of China is not honored in Yasukuni,

Japanese Left who hates Yasukuni and hates Japanese Right spreads propaganda and uses Asian people to attack Yasukuni.

Posted in: Japan Times president apologizes for turmoil; warns of legal action against leakers See in context

@Sh1mon M4sada

Hm.. are you following this issue? This is a sequel.

This issue started when,

*Japan Times decided to describe comfort women as "women who worked in wartime brothels, including those who did so against their will.",*

The president explained that the purpose of the style change was to "enable us to report controversial issues in a fair and neutral manner," and denied that the paper had shifted its political views.

Then, some of employs leaked internal email , spreading info as if this change was made by political reasons or pressure by Right Wing distorting the truth about comfort woman, or even articles from Reuters giving an impression that PM. Abe is behind this. (You know many who just love bashing Abe.).

So the real question is whether comfort woman is sex slave or worker?

if comfort woman are just prostitutes, Japan times's change is correct and way to be fair and justice to falsely accused Japanese people. If comfort women were sex slaves forced into sex by Japanese military, calling them "worker" is wrong.

So, Who are they? comfort woman?

What is the recent updated conclusion?

In 90's Japan, it was difficult to talk about a good side of what Japan did to Korea during colonial rule.

The historical view, has to be like only black color, no gray or mixture of black and white, because of political correctness.

If you talk about even one good thing Japan did, you will be instantly label as Right wing, Uyokuu 右翼.

But today, people are smarter than 90's using smart phone, and can accept how complicated the reality was.

See the series of following tweets below showing many photos of Korea before and after under Japan rule.

See how it got modernized and ordinary people's life is getting better.

Japan spent a lot of money to invest Korea and banning barbaric habits existing Korea such as classicism, slaves and "tits exposed" woman clothes. Also they allow to teach kids both Korean and Japanese language.

Posted in: Hundreds gather near Japan's embassy in Seoul to mourn S Korean 'comfort woman' See in context

There is no official document or orders that Japanese government issued to kidnap and force woman for sex slave.

(There were individual cases where some military officers committed crime just like US in Okinawa militants committed crime.)

Comfort woman was paid job as advertisement shows. Some comfort women made a lot of money. Unfortunately, some women were kidnapped, deceived, or sold by Korean/Japanese BROKERS or Korean PARENTS who provided girls to Japanese military to make money. Japan apologized for not returning these poor women giving up the money Japanese military already paid.( I think US military should apology for that too.)

In fact, Japanese authorities were trying hard to help Korean girls.

In 1938 alone, Japanese police in Korea under Japan rule arrested 1709 criminals kidnapping or human trafficking and 1699 of them were KOREANS!

https://twitter.com/yukin_done/status/794841271076425728

See the list of newspaper articles about Japanese police arresting bad Korean brokers human trafficking Korean girls. (this was posted by Korean person)

http://www.ilbe.com/7278572520

I would say, Good Job Japan saving Korean girls!!

Finally, the Japanese officials ordered the issue about recruiting comfort woman.

Summary is, "There has been report about the case getting into trouble with police in recruiting comfort woman and damaging reputation of Japanese Imperial military, so recruit them more carefully and appropriately"

https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E8%BB%8D%E6%85%B0%E5%AE%89%E6%89%80%E5%BE%93%E6%A5%AD%E5%A9%A6%E7%AD%89%E5%8B%9F%E9%9B%86%E3%81%AB%E9%96%A2%E3%81%99%E3%82%8B%E4%BB%B6

So that is the truth and should be on text book in Korea and Japan as well. Japan apologized and paid compensation. I hope Korean do the same to Vietnam people, Lai Dai Han as well.

@SJ

Just one sentence of sincere apology from the Japanese king, who officially represents Japan as the head of the state, will solve those problems persisted more than 70 years all at once. Why is it so difficult? It does not require even 1 yen.

Have you done any research?

I have no idea what you are talking about.

Here is a list of apologies about comfort woman by Japan from 1990s to 2010s.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_war_apology_statements_issued_by_Japan

Go to the site and try keyword "comfort".

January 1, 1992: Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa, in a press conference, said: "Concerning the comfort women, I apologize from the bottom of my heart and feel remorse for those people who suffered indescribable hardships".

January 17, 1992: Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa, at a policy speech on a visit to South Korea, said:. "What we should not forget about relationship between our nation and your nation is a fact that there was a certain period in the thousands of years of our company when we were the victimizer and you were the victim. I would like to once again express a heartfelt remorse and apology for the unbearable suffering and sorrow that you experienced during this period because of our nation's act." Recently the issue of the so-called 'wartime comfort women' is being brought up. I think that incidents like this are seriously heartbreaking, and I am truly sorry".[16]

July 6, 1992. Chief Cabinet Secretary Koichi Kato said: "" (Statement by Chief Cabinet Secretary Koichi Kato on the Issue of the so-called "Wartime Comfort Women" from the Korean Peninsula).[17]

August 4, 1993: Chief Cabinet Secretary Yōhei Kōno said: "Undeniably, this was an act, with the involvement of the military authorities of the day, that severely injured the honor and dignity of many women. The Government of Japan would like to take this opportunity once again to extend its sincere apologies and remorse to all those, irrespective of place of origin, who suffered immeasurable pain and incurable physical and psychological wounds as comfort women" (Statement by the Chief Cabinet Secretary Yohei Kono on the result of the study on the issue of "comfort women"),[18]

August 31, 1994: Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama said 

July 1995: Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama said in a statement:

:

:

2001: Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi 

March 1, 2007: Prime Minister Shinzō Abe 

December 28, 2015: Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida

I have been searching webs about Kim Bok-dong, and found many Japanese websites say her testimony is contradictory and not reliable.

I don't even know when she was born...

WIkipedia says

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Bok-dong#cite_note-:0-3

She was born in 19 April 1926. From age 14, she was kept in comfort stations for eight years across different countries in Asia.

1926+14=1940

So she was doing sex slave from 1940 to 1948 ?

But war2 ended at 1945.. WHat am I missing??

Paris on 20th September in 2013, Kim said,

she had suffered during the Korean War 

by the Japanese military.

https://arsmaki.exblog.jp/19926244/

Was she talking about sex slave for US military?

It mus be my work.... I feel dizzy,..

Posted in: 'Fear' and 'favor' chill newsroom at Japan Times after 'forced WWII laborer,' 'comfort women' changes See in context

For instance, an Australian-Japanese organization that protests comfort women statues, saying the monuments feed anti-Japanese sentiment, along with Kent Gilbert, a well-known conservative commentator and lawyer who has worked in Japan for decades, petitioned Asahi Shimbun last year to remove "forced" from its description of comfort women.

This is a right action.

As we have seen in MAGAA-Hat Kids issue,

Never assume anything or believe what journals say at first.

It takes long to boil down to the truth.

As for comfort woman issue,

The truth is

http://scholarsinenglish.blogspot.com/2014/10/summary-of-professor-park-yuhas-book.html

And she was indicted and her book was banned in Korea and now she is getting death threat.

http://www.eastasiaforum.org/2017/11/22/park-yuha-and-the-uncomfortable-realities-of-south-korean-democracy/

You should buy and read her book, it is excellent and has a very FAIR view.

The truth is

There were comfort women serving US soliders after war, bu t they never get any compensation or apology from US government.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jlfAqR8uBc&t=83s

These are the things you NEVER get to see on TV.

Truth is always biased by political correctness.

I would like to hear what authors of this article,Mari Saito and Ami Miyazaki, have to say about these things I mentioned.

The present could not exist without the past. This kind of historic distort is not just confined to the WWII. Let me say one example.

Did Korea apologize and pay compensation to Vietnam people for massacre officially as Japan did to neighbor countries? Korean government said President Moon statement on his visit to Vietnam in 2018 was not an apology.

Does Mongolian school teach damages to Korean people on Mongol empire invasion to Korea?

expatToday  02:47 pm JST

I cannot recall ever reading of even a single instance of Korea invading Japan in the past 5,000 years.

There is no major invasion or colonization. But small one yes.

(1) Syngman Rhee Line attacking fisherman ships.

(2) Disputed island, Dokdo/Takeshima. When you claim right for a disputed area , you do that but at least leave it there to pay a respect to other, and you wouldn't put your stuff there obvious way.

Korean built a base there.

Japan is mature and let Korea do as it wishes and trying to avoid conflict.

Opinion of Japanese legal experts on this matter:

http://justice.skr.jp/estatement.html (Enlgish)

http://justice.skr.jp/statement.html (Japanese)

Korean should not listen to their advice because

these Japanese lawyers are idiot.

Why? They say this is about human right issue.

So, I asked them, "Oh, aren't you forgetting the statement made by Japanese lawyers back in 1953 about Japanese fishermen victims in Syngman Rhee Line ? "

There was no answer....

Bottom line is on 1965 treaty, both side mutually waived rights to blame other countries.

李ライン問題に関する日本漁民拉致に対し韓国の反省を求める件(宣言)

https://www.nichibenren.or.jp/activity/document/civil_liberties/year/1953/1953_3.html

Currently I am looking for English version of this statement.

================================================

Syngman Rhee Line

Rhee administration drew a border over sea on their own without any consent with Japan, and those fisherman ships near border were attacked. From 1952 to 1965, 3929 Japanese people were captured, of whom 44 were killed,. No compensation or apology was made by Korean government.

SJ;

Even the former Japanese government official in charge of this matter acknowledged the individual claim rights.

Yes, individuals have right to claim, so Korean individuals should claim to their own government as they sued in 2018.

Korean government is responsible for compensating their own people and so Japan is.

Before 1965, more than 3000 Japanese fishermen were attacked and captured by Koreans and some died . But JAPAN PAID compensation to victims because of agreement in 1965.

=============================

1965

The reparations agreement signed along with the 1965 treaty clearly states that the issues of asset ownership and the right to seek compensation were resolved "completely and finally" with Japan offering economic assistance to South Korea.

2005

the administration of former President Roh Moo-hyun concluded in 2005 that compensation for forced laborers was included as "settlement money" in the 300 million dollars Tokyo paid to Seoul based on the reparations agreement. The South Korean government has compensated those workers.

https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20181031/p2a/00m/0na/012000c

DONE!

2018

Korean group of 1,103 former forced laborers and their families said it had filed a lawsuit demanding the South Korean government provide 100 million won ($88,500) to each of them in compensation because it had received funds from Japan.

This is very important and just shows us that how smart Fumihito is.

Basically he refused too much exaggerated festival for royal, Daijosai, because he sensed politics there.

He felt that the royal family is being used by Prime minister Abe and Right wings by making a ceremony large scale to gather public attention for their own good.

And his message to that is simply NO, consider more about people, not nation.

That's what people are saying on twitter now.
