Title :The U.S. and Okinawa : A Complex Bilateral Relationship
Authors :Gabe, Masaaki
Issue Date :2004
Abstract :As a general tendency, the Japanese do not regard Okinawa as being a part of Japan. Rather, Okinawa is classified within a framework dictated by their conception of Asia. From the beginning, Japan conceived of its own existence as divorced from the rest of Asia, and remained indifferent to this distortion. One critique of Orientalism points towards the images of Asians held by Westerners, and their own self-identification. Assimilated and developed as a part of Japan's Orientalism, the discussion of Okinawa's own fight against criticism is complicated.
