After the attack China declared war on Japan on December 9,1942. Franklin D. Roosevelt wanted the United States to be apart of this so he asked Congress to announce war against Japan to the American people. Eventually, Germany,Italy,Bulgaria,Hungary, and Romania issued war on the U.S. Because so many countries were involved this was the start of WW11.

During the world war, a man by the name of John Lesesne DeWitt, accused the Japanese people to have sabotaged various American households and property. However, in the article Japanese Internment Camps, the author states, “To argue his case, DeWitt prepared a report filled with known falsehoods, such as examples of sabotage that were later revealed to be the result of cattle damaging power lines.” As the quote shows, DeWitt had presented evidence that was complete fiction, but the president still agreed with DeWitt’s recommendation to relocate the Japanese although his

On top of this, the Japanese real estate agents won’t let Zainichi rent houses and so many ended up living in places in poor conditions

Education was not a priority and the the church worried that people would begin to question their beliefs the more people were educated. So, the rulers took away all education in belief that it would help, but “It was not until the end of the Middle Ages that the rulers began to realize that without education they would just continue to make the same mistakes over and over again and would never reach peace for their society” (Newman, Culture).

The Tokugawa regime acted to exclude missionaries because of suspicion of foreign intervention and colonialism. Eventually, they issued a complete ban on Christianity in Japan. Near the beginning, there were an estimated 300,000 Christians in Japan.
