This chapter examines the Japanese perspectives on and reactions to the signing of the Kellogg–Briand Pact. Japan was one of the first fifteen nations that signed the pact without any reservations. However, the Japanese government stated that Japan's understanding of the treaty was “substantially the same as that entertained by the government of the United States.” Sugimura Yōtarō, undersecretary in the League of Nations secretariat, called for more prudent and circumspect consideration by the Japanese government. He thought it vital to secure the right of “free action” in China equal to the British government's claim, lest Japan's future action cause “unnecessary misunderstanding or suspicion” among the powers.

Keywords:   Japan, Kellogg–Briand Pact, Japanese government, Sugimura Yōtarō, British government
