On the occasion of 70th "that day"


"That day" had come again.

The mid-summer heat in Tokyo reminds me the school day of Nagasaki in the summer vacation on my teenage, twenty years ago. Every August, I cannot help but think about the national security and peace of Japan.

"That day" for Nagasaki


On “That day”, the pupils in Nagasaki prefecture were gathered in the auditorium without air conditioner. We heard the cicada chirping outside and had felt sweltering of the auditorium during listening to what Nagasaki city had on that day and how bloody American had done as one atomic bomb were exploded to kill the seventy thousand citizens. I felt that the sadness of the atomic bomb was amplified with the sound of cicada and the sweltering hot.

Peace education had very political message

The education at the primary school in Nagasaki was including “peace education.” But I have never learned about the definition of “peace” by our teachers who just thought “peace” is the antonym of war. The education was dominated by the context of the historical perspective of the Japan Teachers Union which stands Anti- America, Anti- Japanese military, Anti- Japanese government and sympathy to Chinese communist party and Workers’ party of Korea. As the part of “peace education” the pupils were gathered for the purpose they imprinting that military system is evil and US is evil, on this school day on 9th August.


Foreign affair and "That day"

The discussion about the national security has frozen on this August. The opponents against the collective defence were giving up thinking on hearing the word of “military.” The supporters have faced on the strict on revision of the written constitution which had never been revised for seventy years. The education and tendency that the left media and the Unions spread propaganda against the military had stopped Japanese to think about the national security. All citizen of Japan will hope peace as the Constitution of Japan said the world peace, but the governor and the opposition are not able to explain how we can keep the peace in Asia where the government of Mainland China and Korea show the expansionism and imperialism.

We must not do as the Tragedy through Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Fukushima over again. We should not stop our discussion about the national security for our peace.
