Abstract

[The year of 1989 brought an end to an era, for Hirohito died in January. There was hope that under his son, Akihito, there might be some change of direction that would finally benefit the public. The new era was given the name Heisei, literally meaning ‘Achieving Full Peace’.1 This had very positive connotations, suggesting that some of the problems lingering from the war — some would say Hirohito himself had been one — were either already overcome or about to be overcome. The hard work of rebuilding the war-torn nation and creating a superpower was seemingly completed, and perhaps now the somewhat frustrated public could begin to enjoy the fruits of their labours.]
