University of Hawai'i Press

Japanese names are written in Japanese order, with the surname first, unless the subject is an author who publishes in English.

When transliterating Japanese, macrons indicate a long vowel. For common proper nouns, such as Tōkyō or Ōsaka, I have omitted the macrons unless they appear as part of a Japanese term. This is also the case for Chūgoku Denryoku Kabushiki Gaisha, whose official English name is Chugoku Electric Power Company, Inc.

All references to money are given in contemporary (unrefined) values and, where possible, contextualized for their significance.

The main historical and imperial periods discussed are

  • Edo period (1603–1868)

  • Meiji period (1868–1912)

  • Taishō period (1912–1926)

  • Shōwa period (1926–1989)

  • Heisei period (1989–) (p.xii)
