Apologizing is a responsibility Japan has to acknowledge. Germany apologized many decades ago for the genocide and the people of Europe no longer have issues. Japan did wrong, apologize publicly, compensate the victims and move on. Nothing to do with China now and the elections. This has been a slap in the face to Asians for 70 years. Denying what happened only enrages people more.

Its a festering scab because of the denial in Japan that any of this has occurred. History books in J have omited the truth about Nanjin and keep the children ignorant of their true history but most importantly why it is important never to repeat the atrocities.

Too bad. I see those bike hoons all the time, they go through red lights, use pedestrian crossings and think they are above all road rules, then put their GF at the back and endanger their lives at well and usually without a helmet.When you hit them with a car , they claim huge amounts for insurance and give you a lot of trouble. I say learn from this looser hoons.

Police are treating it as an assault by a so-called “tori-ma,” or passing demon, as random slashers are called in Japanese. Instead of treating it as an assault Shouldn't that say ' Treating it as attempted murder with intent to kill and possession of a lethal weapon or concealable white arm weapon??' Assault is a little light, no?

Saying Nanjin was fiction is terrible because of all the overwhelming evidence, video footage, eye witness accounts of both American and Germans who were in the city at the time and J newspaper at the time which published the progress of the massacres. Denying is like saying no man ever walked on the Moon.!

Thank you 'Japantoday' for writing this story. Wars are always harsh however any Nation or groups of people who are in a position of power refuse to acknowledge the facts and truths of history, that Nation or its Gov is a re-offender to all those who have suffered and an insult to the surviving victims. Acknowledgment of past atrocities is the first step towards healing on both sides and a step to show the world a willingness and absolute resolution to never repeat the same atrocities. Any Gov claiming to be a Democracy should be an example for the World thus demonstrating strong leadership. What the Chinese Gov has done in other regions is also bad, however this is another example of how Communism is failing the people, therefore Democracy must be upheld by being the leaders who insist on healing through acknowledgment of past mistakes and freedom of speech.
