The purpose of this paper is to check the present condition of Japan's Dokdo education and to examine the directionality of the movement of intensified Takesima/Dokdo Education by focusing on The Final Report(2012.3), from which the implications for our Dokdo education will be deduced. The Final Report mentioned above decided to use social studies textbooks in each subject in the field. In addition, for each course ‘Exercise’, and ‘Guideline for Map’, ‘Data /Historical Materials’ including glossary are specifically presented. In addition, Takesima/Dokdo Education of Shimane Prefecture will be good example for others, and increasingly will be used in the field of school education. It is clear that the guideline of Shimane Prefecture is sure to be spread throughout the country and the number of textbooks which defines Takesima/Dokdo belonged to Japan will increase. Qualitatively and quantitatively, this trend will be reinforced in various social studies textbooks. In our side, to respond to these Japanese education based on new teaching guideline, the contents of present auxiliary textbook including description of Dokdo in social studies textbooks need to be reorganized. Reform of Dokdo education appropriate to the student's eye-level will be made in the manner of which students at each level can easily understand and be interested in Dokdo.
