Abstract

When I was invited to contribute this prefatory chapter, I deemed it a great honour, but doubted whether I could write a chapter worth reading. Neverthe­ less, I thought that it might be worthwhile to write about how a phytopatholo­ gist of Japan entered our profession in his youth and how he advanced his life work. When I started my studies in phytopathology at the Hokkaido University in Sapporo, the professors of phytopathology were S. Ito, Y. Tochinai, and T. Fukushi. These professors were students of professor emeritus K. Miyabe, who was about 90 years old and still worked on his research in the herbarium every day. He initiated one of the first courses in phytopathology in Japan in 1889. (Kotaro Shirai started a course at Tokyo University in 1886. ) Thus, I belong to the third generation of phytopathologists in Japan. In the feudal age of Japan, peace was maintained for about 250 years from 1615 to 1867 by the adroit policy of Tokugawa Shogunate. However, dissatis­ faction with government policy grew during the long term of peace. The visit to Japan of the American squadron commanded by Admiral M. C. Perry in 1853 triggered the Meiji
