Chapter Summary

This chapter examines some of the cross-currents in Japanese foreign policy in the early post-war era for our understanding of the Japanese participation in the conference. Indeed, Japanese foreign policy towards Asia was to be strengthened through economic cooperation with the South East Asian countries. Americans were initially suspicious of the intentions of the Japanese, although it seems the US Embassy's contact in the ministry, Tani Masayuki, subsequently succeeded in alleviating the concerns of the Embassy by making sure that Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) discussed Japan's plans and preparations for the conference with them. The issue of Japan's representation at the conference was ferociously debated at the Diet. The reports that Takasaki delivered to the House of Councillors and House of Representatives were rather similar.

Keywords: Asia; house of councillors; Japan's journey; Japanese foreign policy; Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA); political Independence; Takasaki's reports
