ABSTRACT

Okamoto kanoko (1889-1939) is a well-known female singer, novelist, and Buddhist researcher in modern Japan. Her active period in the literary world coincided with the time when Japan launched a foreign war. At that time, a large number of literature supporting war appeared in the Japanese literary world. Because Okamoto Kanoko did not mention “war” in her novels, she won the evaluation that Okamoto's literature is war-free, even though she created quite a few war-related literary works in her essays and short songs. The work is also considered to cater to the current situation, not its original intention. The discussion of Okamoto Kanoko's true attitude towards war is a subject in which there is still space in the study of war responsibility of Japanese female writers.
