I created some images to refute anti-Japanese historical denialism of Japanese education. One is a scan of the original Osaka Shoseki’s history textbook’s Lingchi Propaganda Picture.(cf. Links for countering anti-Japanese Hate Speech about History Textbooks) And the other two are made with the scans of Shuueisha’s kids learning manga of Japanese history in WW II. They mean that Japanese history education teach us war crimes. And we, Japanese people refuting the war crimes don’t believe our history education under the government’s course guideline.
Although my internet sites itself don’t have many viewers, I tried settling 反日問題・反捕鯨問題・その他, a Japanese wiki site with Dokuwiki for talking about anti-Japanese hate speech, about anti-whaling propaganda, and about the other issues discussed on Le Salon de Emmanuel Chanel, my forum.

We, Japan send Antarctic Research Expedition to Antarctica under Antarctic Treaty. So the treaty and its freeze of the territorial claims over Antarctica are very famous. And in Japan, we take it for natural that such children’s books like these are widely published. But I hear that it’s not in foreign countries including Europe and America. These except the web contents are usually lent in public libraries. So even very poor people have chances to learn it in Japan. (In Japan, illiteral people are very irregular, under our public education.) Continue reading Antarctic Treaty in Japanese children’s books
I uploaded the photography of Minamata Disease part of the society textbooks for 5th grade and the Nanjing Incident part of ones for 6th grade to ftp://ftp.emmanuelc.dix.asia/inspected_textbooks/2010/ Those textbooks are inspected in 2010 by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology. The inspection of primary school textbooks this time is done in 2014, last year. It would be good to transcript those textbooks with making the album here but now I put the raw data on FTP. And I’ve deleted their EXIF information.
Those pictures mean that primary schools under Japanese public education law teach Minamata Disease and Nanjing Massacre. We, Japanese people are not against teaching the former. And we argue much about the latter. Anyway, all of us learn them. If we blindly believe our textbooks or if we take the inspection for absolute, few on the net would refute Nanjing Massacre.

I deleted that photos from my anonymous FTP site on 26 Nov 2015. I found it problematic on copy rights…
Maren Roush(LinkedIn/zoom info) is one of them. She says “I have a masters degree in environmental science and have worked in public health for 20 years. I just don’t understand how a nationalist mindset would lead people to pick and choose what to believe, ignoring hard science – especially when it puts their families at risk.” on Please read our “Moderation Policy”… – Prime Minister’s Office of Japan. So I crossexamined her. And she says think she will stay away, after my crossexamination. 😀 I feel that I have more to refute her, though.
