Chapter Summary

This chapter attempts to understand how Japan has perceived Korea and explores the history of exchanges and mutual influence between both sides, based on the comments and views expressed by intellectuals and North Korean residents in Japan, covering the period between the colonial rule and the post-liberation era. It reviews recent joint history research between Japan, and South Korea and China at both transnational and intergovernmental levels and analyses the nature of these cross-border interactions, making some comparison with the case of Germany. The chapter turns to intergovernmental cooperation. It discusses the perception gap which emerged between South Korean and Japanese historians over the conquest of Korea and the scope of Japan's twentieth-century wars. In both cases, the Korean scholars traced much deeper historical roots beyond immediate causes and located current problems within the larger sweep of Japanese history.

Keywords: historical roots; intergovernmental cooperation; Japan's twentieth-century wars; South Korean historians
