Le site web du Time propose une sélection des livres de photographes qui ont marqué 2014. Parmi ceux-ci, on trouve un livre que peu de personnes pourront voir ou acheter comme il n’en existe que 45 exemplaires, tous déjà vendus : Kazuma Obara, Silent histories.



Obara y parle des victimes des bombardements aériens d’Osaka par les troupes américaines, en 1945 et des préjugés, de la discrimination, au travail notamment, et de l’indifférence dont elles ont souffert, en particulier de l’absence d’aide du gouvernement japonais.


Le livre mêle interviews, photos et documents d’époque et portraits photographiques récents des personnes qui racontent leur vie et leurs souffrances.


Obara est surtout connu, notamment en France, pour son travail photographique et ses reportages sur la catastrophe nucléaire de Fukushima.

OSAKA--Visitors to Osaka Castle Park can soon take a trip back to the Edo Period (1603-1867) where they can dress up like a samurai and dine in restaurants that recreate the feel of those olden times.

The Osaka city government on Oct. 16 selected the firm that will manage the Edo Period theme park that will be situated on the grounds of the castle, originally constructed in the 1580s by warlord Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1536-1598).

The theme park, scheduled to open within the next fiscal year, will be located directly in front of Osakajokoen Station on West Japan Railway Co.'s Osaka Loop Line.

Attractions in the theme park will include a photo studio that allows visitors to be photographed in samurai outfits and restaurants that let customers experience the Osaka of the Edo Period.

The building erected in 1931 near the main castle building that served as the Imperial Japanese Army's 4th Division headquarters until the end of World War II will be renovated to house cafes and restaurants. The building had been used as a city museum from 1960, but was left unused since it closed in 2001. The Japanese-style guesthouse inside the castle grounds will become a party venue.

The jogging course that extends across the castle grounds, used regularly by local residents, is planned to be renovated as well. New changing rooms for joggers will be erected.

The theme park will be managed by a consortium made up of the Kansai branch of advertising giant Dentsu Inc. and major housing firm Daiwa House Industry Co.

The consortium was chosen from the two organizations that applied for the position and will be in charge of the park's management for 20 years from April 1, 2015. Under the deal, the Osaka city government will receive an annual set fee of 226 million yen ($2.12 million) and 7 percent of the profits made through the facility, which is estimated to total 20 million to 90 million yen annually.

"The city will be receiving revenue, instead of the usual management of a facility using taxpayers' money," Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto told reporters on Oct. 16. "We don't plan on applying unreasonable restrictions, so I hope many people will make full use of the facility."

Kyoto Lecture Series: "The Deterioration of Ethnic Solidarity in Korean Transnational Enclaves in Beijing and Osaka," Sharon J. Yoon

From H-Announce

Lecture Date:


Recently, scholars have noted that migrants exhibit distinct patterns

of adaptation characterized by frequent movement to their countries

of origin. This influx of transnational migration has, in turn,

altered the structure of historically established minority communities.

The research that will be presented investigates how changes in

the ethnic community have shaped the ways minorities construct

notions of ethnic identity, using ethnographic, interview and survey

data conducted in the Korean enclaves of Beijing and Osaka. These

enclaves reflect two distinct waves of migration: recent South Korean

transnational migrants, and third- and fourth-generation Korean

Japanese/Korean Chinese minorities. As a result of the growing

number of newcomers since the 1990s, the Koreatowns in Beijing and

Osaka have become increasingly connected—both on the institutional

and grassroots level—to the homeland. But rather than

strengthen sentiments of ethnic identity, this has led to formidable

barriers in constructing a collective consciousness within the Korean

community. Damaged co-ethnic relations between the two waves of

Korean migrants have significantly hindered their ability to mobilize

the rich transnational resources for upward mobility. The talk will

bring to light the structural barriers Korean migrants encounter in

cultivating solidarity in the transnational enclave. In doing so,

suggestions for social welfare policies that may aid migrants in more

effectively cooperating together to mobilize the resources offered by

the enclave will also be made.

Sharon J. Yoon is currently a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science

Postdoctoral Fellow at Osaka University. She completed her doctorate in

sociology at Princeton University in 2013 and spent one year as a Korea

Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania prior to

her arrival to Japan. Her research is funded by the National Science Foundation

Dissertation Improvement Grant, the Korea Foundation, and the

Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, and has been published by

the Korea Economic Institute and the International Journal of Sociology.

She is now working on two book manuscripts: Pursuing the Chinese Dream:

The Success and Failures of Korean Entrepreneurs, which is currently under

review, and When Nationalism Goes Virile: The Rise of Hate Speech in Osaka’s

Koreatown, in progress.

Article du jour: 7th-century wooden 'meat tag' found in Osaka palace ruins

7th-century wooden 'meat tag' found in Osaka palace ruins

Merci Asahi Shimbun 1/8/2014

By KUNIHIKO IMAI/ Senior Staff Writer

OSAKA--A seventh-century wooden “mokkan” (wood document) unearthed in 2013 in the ruins of Naniwanomiya palace was likely used as a meat shipping tag.

The mokkan is inscribed with “shishiikko” (meat package) and is considered to be one of the oldest examples in Japan, according to officials with the Osaka City Cultural Properties Association.

A report on the discovery appears in the Aug. 1 edition of Ashibi, the association’s information magazine.

The 8.6-centimeter long, 2.5-cm wide mokkan was unearthed in August 2013 during reclamation work. The foundation where the mokkan was found is estimated to date between 650 to 652, when the early Naniwanomiya palace was under construction during the reign of Emperor Kotoku (596-654).

“Meat could have been paid as a tax or presented as a tribute to the palace,” said Takumi Takahashi, an official with the Osaka City Cultural Properties Association. “It could have been served to workers constructing the palace."
