ABSTRACT
After World War II, the millions Japanese soldiers and civilians living abroad in Japan's former empire were sent home by Allied forces. This article explores the impact of that repatriation on the Japanese homeland, and the social phenomena of scapegoating, alienation, and cultural prejudices that met many returnees. Using memoirs and cultural works, this article considers the experience of repatriation from 1945 to 1958. In so doing, it highlights the connection between repatriation, national identity, and Japan's struggle with war guilt and responsibility as a defeated and occupied nation.
