This article aims to examine how the Japanese nation’s citizens were formed in terms of sovereignty, territory and citizenship. The Japanese Culture Ministry’s authority & instructions in the textbook qualification process, and the response of the authors (to that and to the concept of ‘nation’) who were invited to write for the textbooks, are all examined in three stages, originating with the Fifty-five years system and leading up to today. There have been multiple viewpoints displayed, and clashes have been increasing as well. Some of those viewpoints criticized the existing notion of blaming the Tenno for its responsibility for the war, and flatly denied Japan’s responsibility for all the invasion and occupation. The charge of the latter is now led by the Abe administration, and the trend of the former culminated in the 1997 history textbooks.
