Notes

Title translated into English: Stories of Australia: 10 stories of history and Australia-Japan relations.

Synopsis of content: Story five talks about the fate of Aboriginal Australians starting with their origins, way of life, their rules, social systems, rituals, and encounters with Europeans. Chapters seven to ten discuss Australia-Japan relations up to the present time, starting with Japanese diver emigrants on Thursday Island, the failure of Japanese emigrants’ plans in the Northern Territory, Australian ships’ arrival in Japan in 1825, and Australians’ contribution to the relationship, such as the naturalized Australian comedian Henry Black, James Murdoch (a teacher for Sōseki Natsume), and Mother Sheldon who established the Seishin Joshi Gakuen schools. The chapters about Australia-Japan relations include Australians’ contribution to the relationship, the historical relations between Australia and Japan before, during, and after World War Two, POW issues, the new partnership after the San Francisco Peace Treaty, the Japanese war bride issue, and Japan becoming Australia’s biggest export destination.
