This chapter focuses on Ishii Kikujirō and Nitobe Inazō, who were among Japan’s best and brightest of the Bakumatsu generation. More than any other persons, they were the embodiment of Japan at the League of Nations. Ishii was a professional diplomat who represented Japan in Assembly and Council meetings while he served as ambassador to Paris from 1920 to 1927. Nitobe was an educator and former colonial administrator, and was the highest-ranking Japanese in the employ of the Secretariat from the time it was organized in 1919 until his retirement in 1926. Both carried out their duties with diligence and cultivated networks of personal relationships that facilitated their work. Both also drew praise in Geneva as exemplars of internationalism.

Keywords:   Ishii Kikujirō, Nitobe Inazō, League of Nations, internationalism
