Yun Do Ung Posted over 1 year ago A new insight into the East Sea/Sea of Japan conflict If you compare between Germany and Japan, it would be clear to you that Japan has been unsatisfactorily repentant. I must admit that they did apologize for what they have done. But often they change their stance on those issues and in their culture and education it is evident that they are trying to glorify the past. Many a times they changed their textbook, justifying their cause for the invasions. It is almost equivalent to Germany changing their textbook to state that their use of eugenics and Nazi concentration camps were justified.
