Turning War into Spectacle at Yasukuni Shrine
Chapter 2 covers the two early successful wars of Japanese imperialism (the Sino-Japanese War, 1894-5, and the Russo-Japanese War, 1904-5) in order to examine the gradual process through which the Japanese people came to understand and identify with the ideas behind the shrine. With each victory, the shrine’s grounds were transformed into a key locus for celebrations of war. During these early wars of imperialism Yasukuni Shrine firmly established its position as a site for celebration of the expanding empire by situating itself at the center of a visible network of victory parades and other events that transformed Tokyo into a space of celebration. War death, at the time, was not highlighted.
