    Publishing type:Research paper (scientific journal)  

    © 2020 Indiana University Press. All rights reserved. This article analyzes travelogues written by Japanese visitors to the battle sites of the Pacific War. It argues that they tend to turn the destinations into exclusively Japanese zones of emotional performance, thereby promoting an imaginary reconquest of these sites. While most of these travelogues recount deepening empathy toward the Japanese victims and ignore the islander counterparts, a minority imagine the suffering of the islanders and view the Japanese as perpetrators. These conflicting visions reflect the historiographical debates in Japan. In order to establish whether the journeys yielded these visions or reinforced previously held beliefs, the background, styles and motivation of the travelers require careful consideration.

    © 2017 by the Pacific Coast Branch, American Historical Association. All rights reserved. Of the numerous commercially published Japanese travelogues about the southwestern Pacific Islands, five stand out for their detailed accounts of interactions between the travel writers and the Pacific Islanders. This article explores the common narrative threads in these works. Drawing on the literature on travel writing and dark tourism, it analyzes how the relationship between travelers and the Islanders has evolved over time. The early writers report disturbing encounters with Islanders for whom memories of World War II's Pacific battles were still vivid. The later writers exhibit greater expectations as patrons of battlefield tourism. Their writing displays less interest in a meaningful cultural exchange with the Islanders. This trend may parallel the asymmetry of political and economic power between Japan and the Pacific Islands.

  8. The self-promotion of a maverick travel writer: Suzuki Tsunenori and his Southern Pacific Islands travelogue, Nanyō tanken jikki Reviewed

    Publishing type:Research paper (scientific journal)  

    © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group. Suzuki Tsunenori (1853–1938; also known as Keikun) was one of the pioneering writers on Pacific Islands in the Meiji period. Recent scholarship has exposed flaws in his representation of Pacific Islanders in his landmark travelogue, Nanyō tanken jikki [A True Chronicle of South Seas Exploration] (1892). While the criticism undermined his reputation for his ethnographic eye, this essay employs an alternative critical angle on self-presentation. Suzuki promotes himself as a shrewd multi-talented traveller, culturally astute and willing to venture into the wild. First, this essay sketches the circumstances under which Suzuki embarked on his southern Pacific Islands journey of 1889–1890. Then it analyses how Suzuki projects his desired persona in Jikki. He seeks to develop and exploit these attributes to advertise his performance as a reporter, a cultural interlocutor and a grassroots ambassador. An inward-looking orientation helps us to present a clearer picture of Suzuki’s life and travelogues.

    © 2014 Taylor and Francis. After the end of my solo journey in Southeast Asia, I felt shadows from the trip were following me. It took me some time before I began reflecting on the shadows. My reflections attempt to merge the academic and the personal, and bring my motivation and observations into scrutiny. This reflective exercise begins with my motivation for the journey, and moves to a few individuals and their personal life histories. The reflections made me aware of the naivety and shortcomings in my approach to identity, and the need for continuing dialogues with the shadows.

    © 2014 The Journal of Pacific History, Inc. This paper analyses impressions of Fiji in 1961, recorded by two well-known Japanese travel writers: travel journalist Kanetaka Kaoru and writer Kita Morio. Their comments on ethnic Fijians' attitudes to work and on encounters with a variety of Indigenous Fijians, including ratu (hereditary chiefs), made the observed people others' informing the travellers' views on post-war colonial Fiji in an era when little was known about Fiji in Japan. Differing views on colonialism underpinned the two authors' views. At the time, Kita and Kanetaka revised but replicated the assumptions of pre-war Japanese writing about Nanyo¯ (the South Seas) and of Western travelogues on the Pacific Islands. While Kita passed blunt and prejudiced judgements, he demonstrated an awareness of colonialism's adverse effects and of concerns also felt by the colonial administration about the place of Indigenous Fijians in the modern world. Kanetaka, seemingly without awareness of her latent prejudice, praised Fiji as a near-perfect colony that benefitted from colonialism.

     More details

    Publishing type:Research paper (scientific journal)  

    One of the formative experiences the motorcar racer Ukiya Tôjirô (1942-1965) had was his first long-distance motorcycle journey. His long-selling travelogue, Gamushara 1500 kiro [My frantic 1500-kilometre journey] chronicles his travel and demonstrates his growing awareness as a young member of an elite socio-economic stratum. This article situates his motorcycle journey in Japanese social history. It then analyses his writing from a socio-economic perspective. Of particular importance were the different reactions the sights of the working people triggered in Ukiya. Busy workers embarrassed him and had him reflect on his leisurely status. Episodes at the cinema and films he saw empowered him to arrive at his future ambitions. Yet, idle workers stirred fear in him and left considerations of socio-economic disparity under-explored. The differences in his reflections not only suggest his selective use to elevate and justify his status, but also reveal an attitude he had towards the under-privileged. © 2013 Taylor and Francis.

    Publishing type:Research paper (scientific journal)  

    This article examines how middle school history textbooks published between 1951 and 1995 explain the origins of the Japanese as an ethnic group (minzoku). The analysis shows that despite the relatively long period from which the sample of textbooks was taken, these texts continue to emphasize two categories of Japanese identity: a biologically heterogeneous people through prehistoric immigration and a unified language. Building on the latter theme, the textbooks continued to treat the innovation of the kana as a quintessential development underlying the Japanese cultural achievement. The analysis reveals that the narrative tone shifted from being emotive in the early 1950s texts to somewhat muted in later decades. © GEI.
