Just two months before graduation, Shintaro won the Akutagawa Prize (Japan's most prestigious literary prize) for the novel Season of the Sun[4] (太陽の季節 Taiyō no kisetsu?).[5] His brother Yujiro played a supporting role in the screen adaptation of the novel, and the two soon became the center of a youth-oriented cult.[6] Hitotsubashi University ) is a national university in Tokyo, Japan. ...

In the early 1960s, he concentrated on writing, including plays, novels, and a musical version of Treasure Island. He was involved in directing, ran a theater company, traveled to the North Pole, raced his own yacht, and crossed South America on a motorcycle. From 1967 to 1968, he covered the Vietnam War as a reporter for the Yomiuri Shimbun. For other uses, see Treasure Island (disambiguation). ... For other uses, see North Pole (disambiguation). ...

Legislative career

In 1968, Ishihara ran as a candidate on the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) national slate for the House of Councillors. He placed first on the LDP list with an unprecedented three million votes.[citation needed] After four years in the upper house, Ishihara ran for the House of Representatives representing the second district of Tokyo, and again won election.

The House of Representatives (衆議院; Shugi-in) is the lower house of the Diet of Japan. ...


As a Diet member, Ishihara was often critical of the LDP.[citation needed] In 1973, he joined with thirty other LDP lawmakers in the anti-communist Seirankai or "Blue Storm Group"; the group gained notoriety in the media for sealing a pledge of unity in their own blood.[6]


Ishihara ran for Governor of Tokyo in 1975 but lost to the popular Socialist incumbent Ryokichi Minobe. He returned to the House of Representatives afterward, and worked his way up the party's internal ladder, serving as Director-General of the Environment Agency under Takeo Fukuda (1976) and Minister of Transport under Noboru Takeshita (1989). During the 1980s, Ishihara was a highly visible and popular LDP figure, but unable to win enough internal support to form a true faction and move up the national political ladder.[8] Ryokichi Minobe (美濃部亮吉, February 5, 1904 - December 24, 1984) was a Japanese politician who served as Governor of Tokyo from 1967 to 1979. ... Takeo Fukuda Takeo Fukuda (福田 赳夫 Fukuda Takeo January 14, 1905–July 5, 1995) was a Japanese politician and the 67th Prime Minister of Japan from December 24, 1976 to December 7, 1978. ... Noboru Takeshita Noboru Takeshita (竹下 登 Takeshita Noboru, February 26, 1924–June 19, 2000) was a Japanese politician and the 74th Prime Minister of Japan from November 6, 1987 to June 3, 1989. ...


In 1989, shortly after losing a highly contested race for the party presidency, Ishihara came to the attention of the West through his book, The Japan That Can Say No (「NO」と言える日本 "No" to ieru Nippon?), co-authored with then-Sony chairman Akio Morita. The book called on his fellow countrymen to stand up to the United States. The Japan that Can Say No (Japanese title: 『「NO」と言える日本』 no to ieru nihon) is an essay written in 1989 in Japanese, co-written by Sony chairman Akio Morita and politician Shintaro Ishihara during Japans successful economic rise in the late 1980s. ... Akio Morita on the cover of his autobiography Made in Japan Akio Morita (盛田昭夫 Morita Akio, January 26, 1921 in Nagoya, Japan – October 3, 1999 in Tokyo) was a co-founder of Sony Corporation. ...


Ishihara dropped out of national politics in 1995, ending a 25-year career in the Diet. In 1999, he ran on an independent platform and was elected governor of Tokyo. Year 1995 (MCMXCV) was a common year starting on Sunday. ...


Family

Ishihara is married to Noriko Ishihara and has four sons. Members of the House of Representatives Nobuteru Ishihara and Hirotaka Ishihara are his eldest and third sons; actor and weatherman Yoshizumi Ishihara is his second son. His youngest son, Nobuhiro Ishihara, is a jetsetting painter involved in accusations of nepotism [3]. Nationally famous deceased actor Yujiro Ishihara was his younger brother.

Political views

Ishihara is generally described as one of Japan's most prominent "right-wing" politicians. He has also generated controversy due to his support for Japanese nationalism, frequent visits to Yasukuni Shrine and several displays of alleged racism, historical revisionism and sexism. He sometimes implied that he had little affection for Chinese and Koreans. He apparently declares that he is attached to Taiwan (Republic of China) in a possible move to irritate mainland China regarding the Chinese claim of sovereignty over the Taiwanese territory. He has also generated heat from PETA for the reduction of the 37,000 crows that populated Tokyo.[9] Japanese nationalism, also known as Japanese imperialism or Japanese nationalist ideology is a generic title, referring to a complex series of patriotic and nationalist ideas held in Japan. ...

Policies as governor

Among Ishihara's moves as governor, he:

  • Cut metropolitan spending projects, including plans for a new Toei Subway line, and proposed the sale or leasing out of many metropolitan facilities.[7]
  • Imposed a new tax on banks' gross profits (rather than net profits).[10]
  • Imposed a new hotel tax based on occupancy.[11]
  • Imposed restrictions on the operation of diesel-powered vehicles, following a highly publicized event where he held up a bottle of diesel soot before cameras and reporters.[12]
  • Proposed opening casinos in the Odaiba district.[7]
  • Declared in 2005 that Tokyo would bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics, which discouraged a bid by Fukuoka.[13]
  • Set up the ShinGinko Tokyo bank to lend to SMEs in Tokyo. This bank has lost approximately 1 billion dollars worth of taxpayer's money through inadequate customer risk assessments. [14]

Foreign relations

Ishihara has often been critical of Japan's foreign policy as being non-assertive. Regarding Japan's relationship with the US, he stated that "The country I dislike most in terms of U.S.-Japan ties is Japan, because it's a country that can't assert itself."[8]


Ishihara has also long been critical of the PRC government. He invited the Dalai Lama and the President of the Republic of China Lee Teng-hui to Tokyo that agitated the government of the People's Republic of China.[7] This article is about the Dalai Lama lineage. ... The Presidential Building is located in Zhongzheng District, Taipei City. ... Lee Teng-hui (Traditional Chinese: ; Simplified Chinese: ; Pinyin: ) born January 15, 1923) is a politician of Taiwan. ...


Ishihara is deeply interested in the North Korean abduction issue, and is calling for economic sanctions against North Korea.[citation needed]


Following Ishihara's campaign to bid Tokyo for the 2016 Summer Olympics, he has since eased his criticism of the Chinese government. He accepted an invitation to attend the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, and was selected as a torch-bearer for the Japan leg of the 2008 Olympic Torch Relay.

Peking redirects here. ... The 2008 Olympic Torch Relay is planned to take place from March 25 to August 8, 2008, prior to the Games of the XXIX Olympiad. ...


Racism

On April 9, 2000, in a speech before a Self-Defense Forces group, Ishihara publicly stated that atrocious crimes have been committed repeatedly by illegally entered sangokujin (Japanese: 三国人 (third country national); a term commonly viewed as derogatory) and foreigners, and speculated that in the event a natural disaster struck the Tokyo area, they would be likely to cause civil disorder.[15] His comment invoked calls for his resignation, demands for an apology and fears among residents of Korean descent in Japan.[7] Regarding this statement, Ishihara later said: is the 99th day of the year (100th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2000 (MM) was a leap year starting on Saturday. ... The Japan Self-Defense Forces ), or JSDF, are the military forces in Japan that were established after the end of World War II. The force has not been engaged in real combat but has been engaged in some international peacekeeping operations. ... Sangokujin (Japanese: 三国人; third country national) is a Japanese term referring to colonial nationals of Taiwan (Taiwanese aboriginal), Korea and China. ... This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...

I referred to the "many sangokujin who entered Japan illegally." I thought some people would not know that word so I paraphrased it and used gaikokujin, or foreigners. But it was a newspaper holiday so the news agencies consciously picked up the sangokujin part, causing the problem.
... After World War II, when Japan lost, the Chinese of Taiwanese origin and people from the Korean Peninsula persecuted, robbed and sometimes beat up Japanese. It's at that time the word was used, so it was not derogatory. Rather we were afraid of them.
... There's no need for an apology. I was surprised that there was a big reaction to my speech. In order not to cause any misunderstanding, I decided I will no longer use that word. It is regrettable that the word was interpreted in the way it was.[8]

Much of the criticism of this statement involved the historical significance of the term: sangokujin historically referred to ethnic Chinese and Koreans, working in Japan, many of whom were actually attacked by mobs of Japanese people following the Great Kantō earthquake of 1923.[7] The characters for Gaikokujin, lit: Outside country person. Gaikokujin (外国人 Foreigner lit: Outside country person) is a Japanese word used to refer to foreigners or people not of Japanese nationality. ...

Year 1923 (MCMXXIII) was a common year starting on Monday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...


On February 20, 2006, Ishihara also said: "Roppongi is now virtually a foreign neighborhood. Africans — I don't mean African-Americans — who don't speak English are there doing who knows what. This is leading to new forms of crime such as car theft. We should be letting in people who are intelligent."[16] is the 51st day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 2006 (MMVI) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Other controversial statements

In 1990, Ishihara stated in a Playboy interview that the Rape of Nanking was a fiction, claiming, "People say that the Japanese made a holocaust but that is not true. It is a story made up by the Chinese. It has tarnished the image of Japan, but it is a lie."[17] He continued to defend this statement in the uproar that ensued[18]. He has also backed the film The Truth about Nanjing, which argues that the Nanking Massacre was propaganda. The Nanking Massacre (Chinese: 南京大屠杀, pinyin: Nánjīng Dàtúshā; Japanese: 南京大虐殺, Nankin Dai Gyaku-satsu), also known as the Rape of Nanking and sometimes in Japan as the Nanking Incident (南京事件, Nankin Jiken), refers to what many historians recognize as widespread atrocities committed by the Japanese army in and around Nanking...


Ishihara stated in a 2001 interview with women's magazine Shukan Josei that he subscribed to a theory that "old women who live after they have lost their reproductive function are useless and are committing a sin," adding that he "couldn't say this as a politician." He was criticized in the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly for these comments, but responded that the criticism was driven by "tyrant" "old women."[19] This article is about the year. ...


During an inauguration of a university building in 2004, Ishihara stated that French is unqualified as an international language because it is "a language in which nobody can count," referring to the counting system in French, which he believed to be based on units of twenty rather than ten (as is the case in Japanese and English). The statement led to a lawsuit from several language schools in 2005. Ishihara subsequently responded to comments that he did not disrespect French culture by professing his love of French literature on Japanese TV news.[20] Year 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ... The vigesimal or base-20 numeral system is based on twenty (in the same way in which the ordinary decimal numeral system is based on ten). ... The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ... Year 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Shintaro Ishihara, a politician and novelist was voted the governor of Tokyo and has promised to renovate metropolitan academic institutes including Tokyo Metropolitan University.
Disagreement is strong among the faculty of Humanities, since Ishihara plans to abandon all seminars of literature from the faculty and create a new faculty in Tsukisima where it takes one hour or more from Minamiosawa campus.
If Ishihara realises his plan, Tokyo Metropolitan University will go away and in 2006 a new university Shuto Daigaku Tokyo(首都大学東京) will be settled.
