ABSTRACT

Much of Japan’s modern history centers around the figure of the emperor, who was considered to be the greatest director. Throughout Japanese history, there have been 124 emperors. Among these, history books often mention Amaterasu Omikami, Emperor Jinmu, Emperor Kameyama, Emperor GoMee, Emperor Nintoku, Emperor Go Nara, and Emperor Meiji (who appears the most frequently). Fifth grade textbooks discuss Emperor Jingu, Emperor Shotoku, Emperor Gokyo, and Emperor Tenji in the Emperor, where there was an exchange with Chosun. The connection between the Joseon Dynasty and the emperor is explored through a discussion of the three nations of Koguryo, Baekje, and Silla. The ratio of the emperor to the textbook is 46% in the Chosun Governor-General’s history textbook and 38% in the Ministry of History textbook. In the 1930s, Korean and Japanese history textbooks differed in some narratives, but both are similar to the History Books for the Emperor recorded to commemorate the emperor as the historical center of the nation
