Abstract:

Examines historical and social preconditions for the development of antisemitic and philosemitic trends in Japan. Briefly relates to Japanese views on the Jews from the 16th century to the 19th, as expressed in various sources, and then focuses on the 20th century - the 1920s, the World War II period, and the postwar period. Discusses notions of the Jews as the chosen people on the one hand, and conceptions of a Jewish world conspiracy (based on the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion") on the other hand. In the postwar period, relates to the development of philosemitism in the 1950s-70s, attitudes toward Israel and the Middle East conflict, antisemitic texts on Jews and the Holocaust which began to proliferate from the 1980s, and the more recent establishment of Holocaust Education Centers in Fukuyama and Tokyo. The absence of Jews in Japan, and freedom of the press, enabled controversial and potentially scandalous coverage on the above topics, while scientific research attracted less interest. Both antisemitic and philosemitic tendencies still exist in Japan.
