Removing the Historical Issues Caused by the Kono and Murayama Statements: Incorrect Perceptions of History Continue to Degrade Japan.
The Guardian Spirits of Yohei Kono and Tomiichi Murayama Disclosed the Truth!

Rapprochement with China and South Korea is considered to be a difficult problem that will confront the Abe Cabinet after the House of Councilors election. Prime Minister Abe’s slogan has been “breaking free from the post-war regime”, and despite how hard he tried to produce a new perception of history with his “Abe Statement”, he toned it down when he received criticism from influential members of left-wing mass media, as well as from China and America. Abe succeeded the “Murayama Statement” which he had expressed his plan to revise, and he also inherited the “Kono Statement”. However, he cannot sidestep the issue of historical perception when he comes to grips with constitutional revisions.

Master Ryuho Okawa, the Founder and CEO of the Happy Science Group, in thinking that it would “furnish some material for the fight that’s likely to occur when new statements or foreign policies are published”, summoned the guardian spirits of the men who issued the two statements, Yohei Kono and Tomiichi Murayama, and recorded their public spiritual messages. The spirits revealed secrets that concerned the creation of these two statements, which fabricated a humiliating view of Japanese history and caused harm to Japan’s national interests.

Master Okawa plans to publish detailed book on the subject in the near future, with the possible title of “The Need to Remove the Kono and Murayama Statements; Incorrect Perceptions of History Continue to Degrade Japan”.
An extract of the spiritual messages follows.


The Kono and Murayama Statements Hinder Constitutional Change and the National Defense

The “Kono Statement” was made in 1993 by the then Chief Cabinet Secretary Yohei Kono. In it, he acknowledged the involvement of the former Japanese Army in the comfort women controversy. The “Murayama Statement” was made in 1995. In it, Tomiichi Murayama, then the Prime Minister, acknowledged the Japanese colonial rule of, and aggression towards, Asian countries.

Neighboring countries, such as China and South Korea, already possess the historical perception that Japan acted as a cruel aggressor. Thus, they automatically take action to obstruct Japanese constitutional changes simply because they fear that Japan will once more become a major military power. However, the security environment around Japan is rapidly deteriorating, and continued postponement on the issue of constitutional change and the beefing up of national defenses will only lead the country to ruin.

What was it that Kono and Murayama, the men who published the statements that shackled Japan, wanted to do to the country as politicians? Master Okawa summoned their guardian spirits, and drew out their innermost “true thoughts”.


“First and foremost, I wanted to make compensations.”

First, the guardian spirit of Yohei Kono appeared, who made the “Kono Statement” as Chief Cabinet Secretary of the Miyazawa administration. He was also a public servant in the Murayama Cabinet, which issued the “Murayama Statement”, as a Deputy Prime Minister and a Minister of Foreign Affairs.

“It would have gone smoothly if he had acted like me, but it seems that Abe is not sufficiently educated and is trying to provoke disturbances”

“An ease in the tensions with China and Korea and a boost our friendship must have also improved the economy, don’t you think? Didn’t we transform Japan into a glorious country?” said a guardian spirit who sang praises for the “Kono Statement”. However, when asked if it had investigated the evidence that military authorities had forcibly transported comfort women, he remarked the following:

It’s evident that Japan’s aggressive actions were conspicuous, and that people were made to suffer. In particular, the inferior status of the people of the Korean peninsula allowed them no rights to make autonomous decisions. It may very well be, as has been conjectured, that the Japanese exercised a compelling force against them.

“I don’t know about what happened in the past. However, we are told that such people are still alive today, and I do know that the troops did apparently have military brothels.”

In this way, Kono’s guardian spirit “confessed” that the “Kono Statement” was issued merely based upon conjecture.

He reasoned, “If we didn’t apologize, they would just become more and more angry. If we did apologize, then they would calm right back down.”

On top of which he added, “I thought there might be a Nobel Peace Prize in it, you know. That was how big my pronouncement became.”

With repeated questioning, the conversation gradually approached the crux of the matter.

“First and foremost, I just wanted to make compensations. Japan grew too much in the post-war years. It was around the time that the bubble was beginning to burst, and China and Korea were lagging very far behind. China was devastated in the war, and the Koreans were conscripted into the Japanese army and forced to kill many people. I felt sorry for them, and I wanted to pay reparations, but I needed grounds for my actions. I wanted some kind of excuse for an apology; it didn’t really matter to me whether it was the true. In my opinion, Japan had grown too much, and it needed to give something back.”

Kono’s guardian spirit released a shocking description of how Kono issued his expression of the facts just for the sake of war reparations to China and Korea.


“I had to somehow portray Japan as a wrong nation.”

According to Kono’s guardian spirit, in 1991, two years before Kono issued his famous statement, the Soviet Union had collapsed, and in Japan, too, the mass media and other left-wing groups were trembling with fear.

“If things continued as expected, dangers could have arisen for the left-wing media and it could have gone under. In order to ensure that a left-wing predisposition continued into the future, there was a secret agreement on the need to portray Japan as somehow a country in the wrong. The idea was that if Japan were to make an apology, then a swing to the right could be averted. After all, left-wing commentators were not openly willing to admit that everything they had said up until that point had been ‘totally wrong’.

In order to maintain a post-war fascist view of history, it had to be determined in the public that Japan was no different from Germany or Italy.”

Was the “comfort women controversy created by left-wingers to prove that Japan was a fascist state?

“Japan would not have been considered a fascist state unless it had done something on a par with the Nazi persecution of the Jews.”

Around that time, the LDP was in crisis due to the Recruit scandal and the collapse of the bubble economy. In 1994, the LDP formed a coalition government with the Socialist Party and the New Sakigake Party. Tomiichi Murayama, the head of the Socialist party, was elevated to the postition of Prime Minister, while Yohei Kono, President of the LDP, joined the Cabinet as the Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Foreign Affairs.

When asked, “Did you advise Murayama to issue the statement?” Kono’s guardian spirit answered,

“Murayama hadn’t given it any thought at all. The LDP made all the policies. I told him that ‘the mass media will accept it if we do it in this way’ in order to give a typical air of a socialist government to the declaration.”

After he admitted his involvement, Kono’s guardian spirit continued,

“The topic, which preoccupied us most at that time, was the end of LDP rule. We had to do something to ensure our survival, didn’t we?”

“In order to return to the center of political power, we made it look as if we subscribed to a left-wing view of history. We hoped that a just cause would return the LDP to power in the government.”

Kono’s guardian spirit blurted out these shocking facts that both statements were issued in order to keep the LDP alive, and that the Japanese leadership adopted a masochistic view of history to curry favor with the mass media.

“Japan has an obligation to be occupied by China or Korea for 30 or 40 years.”
Afterwards, Kono’s guardian spirit said more things that were quite unsuited for a Japanese politician.

“A masochistic view of history and a “pressure-free” education go together as a set. A combination of the two should serve to reduce Japan’s international competitiveness and to weaken Japanese pride, and in the meantime, we can wait for China and Korea to catch up. I guess it’s like waiting for the tortoise to roll up while the hare is taking a nap.”

“Japan annexed the Korean peninsula for 36 years. This caused indescribable suffering, and the Koreans probably want the Japanese to prostrate themselves before them in an apology, for whatever reason.”

“You see, Japan has an obligation to be occupied by China or Korea for 30 or 40 years. It would make us even, wouldn’t it?”


Kono’s guardian spirit also spoke on the following points:

  • Why he hates Japan.
  • How he evaluates Masao Maruyama.
  • His religious outlook.
  • Whether he was consistently a loser in his past lives as well.
  • How he regards Prime Minister Abe.


“The Mass Media Drafted the Murayama Statement”

Next, Master Okawa summoned Tomiichi Murayama’s guardian spirit, but he said, “It’s got nothing to do with me. I’m not at all responsible. They forced me into becoming prime minister, and I had no choice but to go along with it. I never once said that I wanted to be prime minister, you know.”

Murayama revealed how irresponsible he was with these words, and spoke of the “Murayama Statement” as if it had nothing to do with him.

“Someone else wrote the contents.”

“It’d be naive to think that bureaucrats produced it. Of course, the draft came from the mass media, didn’t it? It was just a case of making it look as if I’d written it.”

“I didn’t compose it, so go and ask the Asahi Shimbun about it.”

 He kept on saying such things, which made it hard to believe that he had served as the head of state.

“I’m told that I might become ‘the founding father of Japan’.”

According to Murayama’s guardian spirit, the left-wing mass media dreamt of the accession of the office of a socialist government, and its zenith occurred during his inauguration into the Office of the Prime Minister.

“They wanted to make the chairman of the socialist party into the head of state, didn’t they? You see, the same principle was at work as when Hatoyama became prime minister. The newspapers have always shown support for Socialist Party policies. They doubtless wanted to see what would happen if we did things in line with our policies. As a result, I was very highly rated, you know.”

“If Japan were to becomes a socialist state, I’ll be the one credited with opening the path. I think that China should peaceably govern Japan.”

“I’ve been told (by China) that I might become ‘the founding father of Japan’. I formed the first real Socialist Party government. Following Mao Zedong’s revolution, Tomiichi Murayama’s dramatic changes arrived in Japan. I think ‘The Murayama Revolution’ sounds appropriate, don’t you?”

According to Murayama’s guardian spirit, it seems that the left-wing mass media and the Chinese Communist Party had been using the former prime minister, and manipulating Murayama to do their will.


Murayama’s guardian spirit also spoke on the following points:

  • Whether the Great Hanshin Earthquake was due to the anger of “the gods of Ise Shrine “.
  • His thoughts on the abductions by North Korea.
  • Whether the era of constant apologies to China might end.
  • Murayama’s past lives.
  • Whether Kono had a connection to him in a past life.

Master Okawa’s message to Prime Minister Abe: Take no notice; just say what you think.

After the spiritual messages ended, Master Okawa summed up his thoughts, “The Japanese government could be best described as one that rules according to the general mood, but it’s also a government where the people in charge are not prepared to take any responsibility, isn’t it?”

“I think it’s fine for Mr. Abe to ignore what’s happening in the media, and to say exactly what he thinks. Isn’t it better if he doesn’t take any notice of the newspaper companies and the like? Mr. Abe should faithfully follow his own decisions. ”

The Kono and Murayama statements forced Japan to take a humiliating course of diplomacy. However, it’s now obvious that they were, in fact, statements with not an ounce of legitimacy, which were released without an investigation into the existing evidence for them. Yohei Kono, an “anti-Japanese politician”, expressed his views in the statements in order to sell Japan to China and Korea, at a time when the LDP formed a coalition, which aimed to ensure its survival, as well as that of Socialist Party, whose masochistic views of history characterized its party platform. We revealed that those declarations were written under extreme pressure from the left-wing media, which was also trying to ensure its own survival in those days.

The hidden issue in the past election for the House of Councillors was the sweeping away of the “masochistic view of history”. The Happiness Realization Party was the only political group to champion this activity as a part of its campaign pledge.
