This chapter examines the oral and written memories of the children of Japanese agrarian settlers who were left behind in China in the aftermath of the war but returned to Japan after the mid-1970s. From the late 1970s to 2004, the author heard and read their narratives in her fieldwork sites of Nagano (1996) and Tokyo (between 1998 and 2004). She also included in the group of interviewees several children of these children—that is, Japanese-Chinese who were born in China but later joined their Japanese parents in Japan. In this memory map, the past refers to the life courses of these children from their births in the 1930s and 1940s to the present.
