"Best Wishes for Tomorrow" 『明日への遺言』

Director : Takashi Koizumi




Cast : Makoto Fujita, Sumiko Fuji, Masahiko Nishimura


Wartime past offers lessons for today


The post war trial of Lieutenant General Tasuku Okada, who took

responsibility for ordering the execution of 38 captured US prisoners of

war, after he considered them to be war criminals instead for the war time

firebombing of Nagoya. Okada took full blame for the war crime, in effect,

shielding his subordinates from harsh punishment and earning him wide

respect. The movie seeks to call attention to the unresolved question of

American war crime culpability in the fire and atomic bombings of Japan.


Presented by The Consulate-General of Japan, The University of Waikato,

and The Japan Culture Centre, Sydney (The Japan Foundation).
