government’s annual Cabinet Office poll and 87% of Americans say they have a favorable view of Japan according to a Gallup poll So how did the US and Japan get from the situation in 1945 to the strong alliance they have today The process of reconciliation began as soon as the war ended but it didn’t always go smoothly The first phase was the United States’ roughly seven-year occupation of Japan which began following the surrender When Japan got a new constitution which took effect on May 3 1947 its terms came largely courtesy of American influence specifically that of US General Douglas MacArthur and his staff For example while the new constitution democratized the political structure of Japan it also kept Emperor Hirohito as the nation’s symbolic leader per MacArthur’s wishes “Japan experts said if you dismantle the emperor system there will be chaos” explains Michael Green senior vice president for Asia and Japan Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and director of Asian Studies at the Edmund A Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University The constitution also made a key determination about Japan’s military future: Article 9 included a two-part clause stating that “Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as a means of settling international disputes” and to accomplish that goal that “land sea and air forces as well as other war potential will never be maintained” Though it was meant to keep the peace the clause created an unequal power dynamic the military force of the occupying power was growing while that of the occupied nation was stuck and thus led to problems of its own “The US could use its Japanese bases to support military action elsewhere in Asia could bring into Japan any weapons it chose including H-bombs could even use its forces to aid the Japanese government in putting down internal disturbances” TIME later reported “These were bonds that left Japan precious little room for international maneuver and that chafed increasingly against dark memories of Hiroshima and the deep national pride of the Japanese people” And within a few years as the Korean War broke out the US was looking for ways around the terms it had been so instrumental in establishing as it pressed Japan to build up its own military (called “self-defense forces” to get around the constitutional prohibition) as a backstop against the North Korean side Many Japanese people were uncomfortable or worse with this obvious violation of the constitution and what was seen as a movement away from peacefulness which had quickly become part of the post-war national identity But the shift was just one part of a larger motivation for the US and Japan to get back on the same side: the Cold War and the global threat of communism The American occupation of Japan ended in 1952 after the US and Japan signed a security treaty for a “peace of reconciliation” in San Francisco in 1951 The agreement let the US maintain military bases there and a revision in 1960 said the US would come to Japan’s defense in an attack “After the Korean War the US had to rethink how it would deal with Asia so in order to contain communism the US and Japan signed a peace treaty that says Japan is a sovereign country but agrees that the US can stay and provide security” explains Green Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter TIME’s Jan 25 1960 cover story which came out around the week that the US and Japan signed the revised treaty (and which makes use of some national stereotypes from that era) focused on how Japanese Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi had played an important role in reconciling “Japan’s militarist aggressive past and its democratic present” (He was born to do it TIME argued reporting that the name Kishi meaning “riverbank” is used in a Japanese phrase that refers to “one who tries to keep a foot on both banks of the river”) As the cover story detailed not everyone was happy about the two nations’ growing closeness But the forces behind the scenes especially the economic forces were stronger than any individual’s protests: Prime Minister Kishi 63 flew into Washington this week convinced that the logic of the world situation and the profit of Japan require his signature on the revision of the 1951 US-Japanese Treaty Not all his countrymen agree In Tokyo 27000 demonstrators battled police and thousands of fanatical left-wing students made plain their feelings about the treaty by using the great doorway of the Japanese Diet for their own kind of public protesta mass urination… Kishi’s diehard opponents protest that the treaty revision commits Japan to support all US moves in the Pacific and may therefore “attract the lightning” of a Communist H-bomb attack There are US reservations about the treaty as well; many Pentagon staff officers complain that it gives Japan what amounts to a veto over the movement of US troops on the perimeter of the Asian mainland The treaty is to run for ten years and its ten articles pledge that 1) both nations will take “action to counter the common danger” if the forces of either are attacked in Japan though not elsewhere 2) “prior consultation” will be held between the two before US forces in Japan receive nuclear arms 3) Japan is released from further contributions (now $30 million a year) for the support of US troops in the islands In Kishi’s words the treaty will create an atmosphere of “mutual trust” It inaugurates a “new era” of friendship with the US and most important of independence for Japan Only 14 years ago such a treaty would have been unthinkable and that it would be signed for Japan by Kishi inconceivable Then Japan was a nation in ruins: a third of its factories had been leveled by US bombers; eight of every ten ships in its merchant fleet lay at the bottom of the ocean; its exhausted population faced starvation… Yet Japan going into the 1960s has risen phoenix-like from the ashes The Japanese people are 25% better off than they were before the war even though 20 million more of them are crowded into an area 52% smaller than their old territory Japan’s industrial growth has soared to its highest rate ever enough to double the national income every ten years Its tiny farms (average size: 2½ acres) are so intensely cultivated that they have one of the world’s highest yields Nearly every Japanese family owns a radio one in every four a TV set; more newspapers are sold per capita than in the US The people of Japan are incomparably the best fed clothed and housed in all Asia… Japan did not lift itself by its own sandal straps Since the war US aid has averaged $178 million a year; a serious business recession was eased by the 1950 Korean war which poured vast sums into the Japanese economy; war reparations in kind to Southeast Asia have kept factories humming; and the very high rate of capital investment is possible since Japan spends little on armaments But major credit belongs to the Japanese themselves In a typically Japanese swing from one extreme to another they shook off the apathy of defeat and with skill hard work and enthusiasm began rebuilding at home and recapturing markets abroad In contrast Kishi could see the US was supplying economic aid and buying more Japanese goods than any other single country particularly the fine-quality consumer items that are too expensive for the rest of Asia The US," Stenehjem.” “I have a very open mind, NCP.
