Aete Nippon jôge chôya ni shingen su [Dare to advise the government and the people of Japan - the task of rebuilding].
A propaganda leaflet produced by the Far Eastern Liaison Office (FELO) during the Second World War. This leaflet is written in Japanese and was distributed to Japan-Formosa. An English translation of the text is attached. The leaflet states that Germany decided to accept unconditional surrender with the view to reconstructing the nation and questions why the Japanese want to continue the useless fight. The message stresses that Japan started the Pacific War, unlike other wars such as the Sino-Japanese and the Russo-Japanese wars, and that the war will continue until Japan desires a cease fire. The leaflet includes two pictures depicting the city of Berlin destroyed by air bombing and one picture showing German POWs.
