I watch a lot of Japanese TV perforce (my husband is Japanese) and I see a lot of dramas and a few historical documentaries from the Japanese point of view. These are not, of course, about the rape of Nanking or the bombing of Pearl Harbor or the 40-year oppression of Korea. Those things are never mentioned (at least not on NHK). They are about the poor suffering Japanese people during the late stages of the war, with no food, fire bombings, the battle for Okinawa with flame-throwers, and finally Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Somehow they bravely carried on and survived in the rubble. Sometimes in the dramas their husbands and sons and fathers came home from the war (always having suffered) and sometimes they didn’t.
The Japanese official government view seems to ignore most or all of the nasty things that their armed forces got up to in the parts of Asia they conquered, which coincides with a cultural attitude that what you do away from home, where friends and family and neighbors can’t see you, doesn’t count morally. Those events are not taught in history classes either. They don’t deny they lost the war, but their own (undeniable) suffering in doing so outweighs everything else.
On the other hand, I don’t see much complaining about things that US forces did during occupation. So there is that.
