THROUGHOUT the crisis years, foreigners of any kind have not been particularly popular in Japan and many of the manifestations of this anti-foreignism have been directed against resident Britons, perhaps the most outstanding being the activities in 1933 of the “AntiBritain Society,” members of which decorated the streets of Tokyo and Kobe with posters affirming that Britain was Japan’s real enemy, that Britons were past masters of duplicity and iniquity, and that it was the duty of all true Japanese to realize these facts and act accordingly. There have been other manifestations of a similar nature, notably at the time of the imposition of quotas against Japanese goods in the British Crown Colonies. Of these activities many sensational accounts have travelled to Britain, and have even prompted my home correspondents to express concern for my well-being and to request an explanation of this “sudden outburst of hostility.”
