Controversy coming again

December 10th, 2005 . by Matt


Just to let the readers of Occidentalism know, if the Korean media isnt bored with Japanese books about Korea yet, this book will be big news soon. It is called ‘Kenkanryu put into practice handbook – A manual for repelling anti Japanese abusive language’ (嫌韓流 実践ハンドブック 反日妄言撃退マニュアル). The writer is a Japanese blogger known as Doronpa. It is scheduled to be released on the 20th of December, so obviously I have not read it yet. If you can read Japanese, it might be worthwhile checking out his site.

    Isn’t it pathetic how some Koreans can believe a strange and unsupported theory put forth by some common author? I believe it was 金容雲 who first claimed in his book “Koreans and the Japanese” that “fighting man (ssaul-abi)” in Paekche was the origin of the word samurai. He apparently overlooked that fact that samurai was a word established in the 16th century, while Paekche was a country destroyed in the 7th century, or the fact that the modern Korean term “ssaul” was “saho-da” in middle-age Chosun language. Quite frankly, I think there is no way to determine what the Paekche people called the warriror in their dialect, since there are almost no written records that survive from the era. His theory was totally ignored since it was baseless, but was revived by a Korean movie in 2002. But then, the laughably nationalistic lot of the Koreans (I am sure not all, but there are plenty of them on the net) will believe that anything good about Japan that has been recognized by the west must have roots in their land, even when all they have to support their claim is a movie. In the past, Koreans used to claim that samurais were the symbol of the militaristic and aggressive Japanese, never understanding that samurais in the Edo period was simly bureaucrats, who were expected to pursue both the ways of the sword and the pen, and lead very Spartanian lives unlike the merchant class. Now, that they are aware that Bushido is regarded with respect in the west, they claim it’s rooted in their culture. Hmm. Does that mean the aggressive behavior of the Japanese also came from them? It should if you follow their logic.

    Ignore him. He’s just one of those idiots who want to make this site look racist.

    Xu Fu (Xu Shi) Johuku In Japan





    There are many stories and historical records about Xu Fu in Japan. Some scholars speculate that Xu Fu was the legendary Jimmu Tenno. Japanese people worship him as an ancestor and there are even sites of Xu Fu’s tomb, Xu Fu’s palace and Xu Fu’s cliff. In 1991, a park named after Xu Fu was opened in a Japanese city. People worship him every autumn and hold a grand ceremony every 50 years.

    Today, Xu Fu’s tomb can still be found in Wakayama (Japan), with the inscription of “Tomb of Xu Fu of the Qin Dynasty (221-206BC).”
