違和感!/ Strange feeling!

Japanese Title (邦題): 「違和感!」末尾に


Strange feeling!

Good morning to the World, East Asia, and Kanmon!

In this a little more than three years, we have had many guests from East Asian countries and it may be because we locates in Fukuoka pref. which is the closest area to the continent.


As we have taken care of such guests from Asian countries, we are getting to understand that there are a few difference between young generations from such countries and Japanese young generations. Some of them visit/stay here with their parents (who is in same generations as us). And we often felt that there is gap of understanding between their parents’ and us.

I think that this strange feeling have been created in these 100 years. With the experience of the feeling, now I start feeling something missing in my brain.

In the summer, this time of a year in Japan, there are many TV programs and articles in Newspapers which treat “the step to start WWII” and “what Japanese were suffered by air raids and atomic bomb to pursue peace in future. However, there is no effort can be seen that we study “what Japanese did in east Asia” and pursue future peace from those. Is it only me who notice about it?

Even before I started this guesthouse, I went to Hawaii, Guam, Malaysia, Taiwan, Smithsonian and so on. And I saw/hear the story of Japanese “what they did there”. I felt like that I am taught by someone else that there are huge debt which my dad left to me. I felt that we, Japanese, don’t know anything very bad. Because we don’t know, we cannot object/deny logically against the fake stories or forged histories.

Now I strongly feel that Japan have to report/exhibit truth and accurate evidence (no matter good or bad) of “what Japanese/Japanese army did in east Asia” since the Meiji Restoration.

The most important thing is report/exhibit one and only truth and fact certified by Japan, which never made by the fakes and misunderstanding. Such heavy and real history should be shared to all citizens in Japan as general education and that create ultimate leadership in east Asia.

Such building or something should be built next to Ueno educational area or area next to the Peace Museum in Hiroshima or Nagasaki to exhibit them. Study tour students and foreign tourists will visit and see it. That will lead Japan to the real peace or step up to the permanent peace of the world. (That can be promoted for study tours from foreign counties.)


After these trials were achieved, our future young people will never feel shame on their innocence in the museums of the countries where they will visit by air ticket of LCC. And I wish such future for our children.

Thank you and you have a nice day being proud of yourselves.

P.S. This is to share my finding as a guesthouse owner who will talk with all guests stayed here. Thank you for leading such long article.
