Japan's Foreign Ministry on the Offensive with Peace

Friday, August 5, 2005 Posted: 09:48 AM JST

The Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, shocked by Chinese and Korean anti-Japan protests earlier this year, and international campaigns against Japan's ambition for a seat on the UN Security Council, has gone on the offensive. This week it published a new pamphlet, showing a stronger focus on Japan as a peace loving country. 60 Years: The Path of a Nation Striving for Global Peace (PDF Pamphlet) shows a timeline since 1945 highlighting Japanese contributions to world peace.

Japan is one of the few countries in the world whose soldiers have not killed another country's citizen during the past sixty years. It is about time that Japanese diplomats more effectively spread this message.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
