Japanese Comfort Women When Japanese comfort women were to be sent overseas, they had to be over the age of twenty-one and chosen from among groups of prostitutes. These restrictions were imposed by the police. In the notice issued by the Home Ministry’s Chief of the Police Bureau on February 23, 1938, Mat- ters Concerning the Handling of Women Sailing to China," the follow- ing regulations were established.

The large scale imprisonment and rape of thousands of women, who were euphemistically called "comfort women" by the Japanese military, first seized public attention in 1991 when three Korean women filed suit in a Toyko District Court stating that they had been forced into sexual servitude and demanding compensation. Since then the comfort stations and their significance have been the subject of ongoing debate and intense activism in Japan, much if it inspired by Yoshimi's investigations.

Yoshimi provides a wealth of documentation and testimony to prove the existence of some 2,000 "comfort stations" where as many as 200,000 women of varying nationalities, euphemistically known as "comfort women," were imprisoned and forced to engage in sexual activity with Japanese military personnel.

Mr_Mix
The seminal work that makes the case for the involvement of the Japanese government and military in the demand, setting up, and "staffing" of the comfort stations. Yoshimi has researched this well and carefully lays out his case. This book is a slam-dunk case and a must read.

Thank You. Interesting Book.

I found the font difficult to read. Perhaps others might like an electronic version where they might change the font and its size to suite their taste.

Well researched and documented. Bravo to Yoshimi for making the necessary and human move towards truth. The Japanese have failed to acknowledge their many war crimes and this is a step towards balance. I'm stunned by the one star reviews here... so obviously by Japanese nationals who refuse to admit their country's atrocities. Shame on them..Iris Chang's Rape of Nanking is an important work as well. Green earth books - great seller... book arrived in very good condition and quickly.

This book documents through research the direct involvement and approval of Japanese Government in setting up such brutal and abusive system on Asian women. The Japanese invaders lured occupied countries women by force, lies, deceptions and kidnapping into military sex slaves with fancy names as "comfort women". These poor young women suffered repeated gang rapes and violence with physical and psychological damage and carried the shames and scars till now. Japanese soldiers murdered most when Japan lost the war. I had met a few survivors and listened to their nightmare and testimonials. Their lives were in ruin.

Now, sixty years after Japan's unconditional surrender, there were survivors in Philippine, Korea and China. They broke their silence to testify in US Congress lately with the help of Congressman Mike Honda. How shameful of the Prime Minister of Japan Abe to deny this large scale of international violation of human right. The Japanese government raped these poor women once more! How can we trust Japan for world peace?

Reading this book on Japanese crime against humanity and their shameful denial now would make you join the global campaign to condemn the Japanese now and then!

My father was an intelligence officer in the Navy during WWII and was involved with debriefing a number of fairly senior Japanese officers during the war because he spoke Japanese reasonably well. One of the things that came out time and again is how the military systematically destroyed records because they feared that members of the military would be turned over to Chinese and Korean forces for trial.

The true depth of the abuses of the Japanese military vanished with those documents forcing us to use mostly oral sources to discover the truth. However the oral stories from around the Pacific Rim are largely the same: with a few notable exceptions young women were kidnapped and forced in to sex slavery.

Unlike the German government the Japanese government has never accepted their crimes. I suppose it's natural to be ashamed of so much cowardice and cruelty but it means that this wound will always blacken the whole nation of Japan, long after the criminals are all dead.

Why say all this? Because so much of this book relies on oral histories (even the best Japanese documents are often letters home that describe the brothels rather than official documents). The apologist cling to their desperate plea of "almost no official documents" as if somehow a government letterhead spelling out the crimes is better proof than a thousand tearful stories from a dozen nations that match so well that an organized system of sex slavery is clearly what existed.

Reading this is not easy and you may come away with a bias against the Japanese. Remember that many nations have committed dark acts and yet went on to do great and good things. It is not the purpose of this book to condemn a nation, merely to condemn the criminal cowardice of the Japanese Army of that time.

One day Japan will embrace that truth, and on that day they will have their honor back.

It is not a easy book to read; it sure will make many of people in today's materialized society to realize how lucky they are.

This book should be included in our text book to teach our new generation that freedom and liberity is not FREE and there is always a price to pay.

If the Japanese government is not so sensitive and being over-protective about the issue, they should use this book as one of their text book in learning the mistake in their past, and hopefully they won't make the same mistake again in their new generation.

Yoshimi did much of the ground-breaking research, and this book shows the results. He writes like a true scholar: presenting the facts he discoverd and giving a clear reasoning for the conclusions he draws from then. He is explicit about his own convictions, but keeps them separated from the facts, carefully avoiding overstatements. Japan can take pride in this historian.
