This article attempts to demonstrate and analyse Japanese images and fantasies that have been projected onto Tibet both in Japan's colonial and contemporary eras. The author focuses particularly on the latter period, investigating literature and social vocabularies demonstrated by important Japanese monks, scholars and travellers who disseminated conflicting and distinctive images of Tibet. In so doing, he argues that Japanese imaginings of Tibet throughout the last century have been inextricably connected both to the nature of Japanese modernity and to the ways in which Japanese interpret their Buddhist traditions and national identity.
