The last Japanese veteran in China died at the age of 103. Why did he insist on not returning to China?

The last Japanese surrender to surrender, the media report of the last century was Onododa.

After he announced his surrender in Japan, he was hit by a guerrilla in the jungle of the Philippines for 29 years, and he surrendered back to China in 1974.

This is in the Philippines.

In China, there is a Japanese demon soldier who has participated in the war of aggression against China. He has lived for 73 years like ordinary people. He insists on not returning to China, and he is a doctor when he sees a doctor.

Finally, in 2010, he passed away at the age of 103 and became the last devil soldier to die in China.

He is Yamazaki Hiroshi.


1. Japanese veterans stranded in China returned to China after 40 years.

Yamazaki was born into a family of doctors from Wakayama City, Japan. He was forced to join the army in Tianjin during the July 7 Incident. He could not be used to killing innocent Japanese beasts, sneaking out of the barracks and playing Chinese refugees to flee to Jinan, Shandong.

I found a job in the Japanese expatriate in Jinan, opened a clinic to treat the poor in China, and the medicine was cheap, sometimes not expensive, and the reputation became higher and higher, eventually becoming a famous doctor in Jinan.

In September 1972, China and Japan signed a joint statement to establish diplomatic relations, and Yamazaki was finally able to return to China to visit relatives.

When Japan was defeated, he could have applied for repatriation, but he thought that returning to China was also in poor condition. The ruins were worse than life in Jinan. The key was that he was worried about his own experience and he was afraid that he would not have good fruit to eat.


Now that he has established diplomatic relations, he wrote a letter to the brothers of his hometown in Japan. After the help of the relevant departments of China and Japan, he decided to go home and see.

From 1937 to 1976, there was no news in 40 years. The family thought that he died in China early, and the spiritual position had been given to him for decades.

Now, the relatives happily removed the spiritual position and asked him to find a job in a Japanese hospital, with a salary of 300,000 yen per month. The real estate should have his own.

His parents grew up and died, and they grew up with their older brothers and sisters. They wanted to leave him, 68 years old, and wanted him to spend the rest of their years in Japan.


Although Japan is already an economic powerhouse, despite the favorable conditions in the family, the relatives advised to stay and be sincere, but he did not hesitate to choose to return to China.

Although there are no parents, brothers and sisters, but there are their own clinics, there are wars to help him escape, when it is difficult to tell him a wife, a good and reliable Chinese who speaks for him when he is in turmoil.

In his view, no matter how bad the world is, the background of human nature is the most reliable future.

Half a year after visiting relatives, he returned to Jinan in three months.

He brought back 3 things, not for making money and making money - One is a 14-inch second-hand color TV, for the wife and children to see;

One is an electrocardiograph for the hospital;

Another pile of things is Japanese science and technology books, donated to the Science and Technology Museum.


2. the veteran does not return to China, the Japanese Prime Minister wrote to send him 4 words

After the reform and opening up, he became a civil ambassador of the two countries, frequently traveled to and from the two places, and promoted the establishment of a friendship city between Jinan and Japan's Wakayama City.

During the period, he wrote to the Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakahiro and said all his experiences and expressed his willingness to contribute to the peace and friendship between the two countries.

From the Japanese deserters to the "Chinese people", now is the messenger of peace, which is also awkward for Japan. How can we say good?

Nakasone Kanghong once pushed the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Japan and commented that "the war launched by Japan in the past was a war of aggression and a war of error."

He wrote back to Yamazaki, encouraged his thoughts, and wrote four big characters to send him: "There is no way to the avenue."

It means to do big things, don't think too much about the rules and regulations, and a Zen language to make things difficult to say.


After this, Yamazaki was reported by the media more and more, and his military status and deserter experience finally came out.

For so many years, he has lived in China as a Japanese. The experience of this deserter has never been told to anyone, including his family.

Now, his wife knows this fact from media reports and laughs that she is a "devil doctor."

The times are different. This "devil sergeant who has been a military doctor for six months, has not hit a bullet, and has not killed a Chinese" has no meaning in turning his old bottom.

In the eyes of the locals, he is a good doctor, a Japanese expert.

He told the media: "Japan has brought too many disasters to the Chinese people. I have done my best to do more good things for the Chinese and to plead guilty to the Chinese."


His specialty is to cure the three major diseases of diarrhea, fever, and cough in children.

The parents who came here have spent 2 cents on the road to find him, and spent 1 hair 5 to get the medicine.

People can't see a doctor, and some still go to his home to find him. He doesn't need money at home to see a doctor. Sometimes he still has to pay for meals and tolls.

This is before and after liberation.

In the 1980s and 1990s, he was an old man, and he still did.


When he was young, he was a Chinese doctor. At the old yellow table where he was sitting, the place where the patient reached out and cut the veins had already worn out a piece of white.

Sometimes there are many people, the clinic children are crying, and unlike other local doctors, he never takes the children out.

Don't worry, see people always smile, don't talk, don't communicate very much, a pair of flat shoes, sit for 2 and a half hours at 7 o'clock every day...

After experiencing rough winds and rains, knowing the true and false life, people will become indifferent, and rickets are the only real thing.

Oh, yes, when a reporter interviewed him, he weakly mentioned a small request: Do you know the big leader? Can you find a job for my grandson? It’s OK to see the gate...


3. 103 years old died, leaving two home exercises

It’s not just these touching people.

In the 2000s, Yamazaki was more than 90 years old, and he was able to stay in the outpatient clinic downstairs.

He has a cataract and his ears are back, but experience is enough to get medicine for the children.

The clinic allowed him to see only 10 patients a day, but he did not want to refuse to see more patients, and he saw more than 30.

There are many things that people are jealous. He often pisss on his pants and insists on not getting off work. He can change clothes after going home.


The clinic is not big. It doesn't expand on two tables. If it is more profitable, he will not go back to the big hospital 20 years ago when he went to work. The small clinic is his whole.

In 2004, the 97-year-old Yamazaki got a serious illness. The family gave him a shroud, but he didn’t accept it. He came over again.

After a serious illness, he knew that he really had to leave, and he made the last request to the relevant departments: donating the remains and doing medical research.

However, because he is a Japanese nationality, the Japanese have not yet had a precedent in applying for donation in China, so the application was approved for four years before the government approved it.


A centenarian is very well treated in Japan. Although he lives in China, he also receives pensions from the Japanese government.

However, the old people of these moneys are lightly seen and donated to the people in need in China in various names.

In the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake, I knew that I would donate 3,000 yuan to the Red Cross the next day.

Later, the street office organized another donation, and he donated another 1000.

In 2009, the 102-year-old Yamazaki Hiroshi received the Japan Foreign Minister’s Commendation Award and the Japanese Prime Minister’s Award from the Japanese Consulate.

In March 2010, the 103-year-old Yamazaki was named by the media as the “Top Ten City Faces” of Jinan.

On December 1, the old man Yamazaki died of a heart attack.


According to her daughter, before the death of the old man, he was still screaming at "atonement" and "serving the people."

In his clinic, there are 2 family lessons written by a 103-year-old man:

“Serving the people wholeheartedly is the highest virtue.”

"The moon is bright, and people are affectionate."


After reading Yamazaki's life, 103 years old, a century of leap, I feel that life is true and false, ups and downs, and many things that I pursue are actually unnecessary. There is no way in the road, the people are the most sincere, and they are able to live a stable life.

This is the so-called good man good news.
