Hi there.I’m Naoemon.
This article explains why the Japanese government and Japanese people hate South Korea.
And I want to reveal the truth of the history that is the cause of that.
One of the reasons why Japanese hate South Korea is that South Korea invaded Takeshima, Japanese territory, by force.
South Koreans claim that Takeshima is South Korea’s territory, but there is no such historical fact.
In the Edo period, Takeshima was used as a navigation target or anchorage when crossing Ulleung Island under the approval of the Edo bakufu (Japanese feudal government headed by a shogun).
After 1665, it was used as a good fishing ground for abalones by permission of bakufu (Japanese feudal government headed by a shogun).
Japan’s clear effective control of Takeshima is 1903 years.
It started when Yozaburo Nakai from Saigo-cho, Oki Island built a fishing house on Takeshima Island and moved his laborers there and started fishing for sea lions, abalones, sea cucumbers and seaweed.
On September 29, 1904, Nakai, concerned about the extinction of sea lions, submitted an application to the Japanese government asking three ministries of the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Agriculture and Commerce for the incorporation of Takeshima, an isolated island in the Sea of Japan, into Nakai’s territory and the lease of it.
The Japanese government researched Korean literature and confirmed that the island was owned by no country.
The Japanese government made a cabinet decision on January 28, 1905 to incorporate Takeshima into Shimane Prefecture Oki island government and Minister of Home Affairs Akimasa YOSHIKAWA promulgated a public notice as’ Instructions by the Minister of Home Affairs. ‘
As a result, Takeshima officially became Japanese territory, and the effective control of Takeshima began here.
The announcement was “an uninhabited island at 37.9 30 seconds north latitude and 136.5 degrees east longitude” and the location and current situation were clearly stated.
In 1905, a concrete monitoring station was built on Takeshima Island at the time of the Battle of Tsushima during the Russo-Japanese War.
This photo was taken on Takeshima in 1935. They are Korean Ama female free diver who have come from Ulleungdo in Korea to work.
After the war, the San Francisco Treaty concluded that Takeshima was Japan’s territory, but South Korea insisted that ‘it was not the consensus of the allied nations that concluded the treaty based on the opinion of the United States alone.
However, according to official documents of both countries, the United Kingdom and Australia, in addition to the United States, recognized Takeshima as Japanese territory.
Takeshima is thus completely Japanese territory.
South Korea occupied Takeshima by force in 1953, one year before Japan’s Self-Defense Forces were established.
You can understand why Japanese people are furious.
