I checked again. No Japanese scholar claimed it and they never estimated that 200,000 Japanese women raped because documentary evidence and records shows it never existed. The 200,000 Japanese Amerasians, 200,000 rapes by American soldier is considered fake and non-existent . That's like claiming Mongols raped a million European women without evidence. One can easily claim that the Mongols killed most of the European women since there a massacre on million Europeans and also 1/3 of Europe died of plague and so all the pregnant European women that cam in contact with Mongols died a long with them.
So it on other words at least 200,000 Japanese women raped never existed by American soldiers.

Okay replying to Lucite Cites post.. There is no evidence of mass rape in Japan. So the 200,000 Japanese women rapes is impossible, is at best 15,000. Brian Walsh states that while the American occupation forces had a criminal element and many rapes occurred, However..."there is no credible evidence of the mass rape of Japanese women by American soldiers during the occupation", and claims that this occurred are not supported by the available documentation. Instead, he writes that both Japanese and American records demonstrate that rapes were uncommon,
