Sunshine 60: Revisited


Sunshine 60:  Revisited




The building  known as Sunshine 60  is a site that  evokes a memory in the hearts of the bereaved.  A memory  that is so distant and faint, yet so present and near.    This 60 story building represents  60 years of working under the new system; 60 years of living under an American Constitution.   60 years of prosperity; 60 years of decadence; 60 years of conspicuous consumption.   60 years of wandering around in that dark wilderness  and not knowing nor understanding the national identity of the nation.  



The national identity in Japan used to be found in the "Hakko Ichiu" as Japan's justification for its expansionist policies under a newly found brotherhood.    America's justification for war and national identity is found in its " Oath of Allegiance," sworn by military personnel and all  immigrants who wish to become American citizens.   The defense clause is a misnomer for America's right to attack other countries preemptively as a preventative measure against future attacks on U.S. soil.



Maybe there's another identity lost in the booze, overwork, Hello Kitty, and commercialism.   Or maybe it's the total disregard for the martial spirit that wasn't enough to soothe the thirst for all-things-Americana that led you to believe that this is the "Japanese identity."     There are souls lost in limbo on some timeless plane far from your perceptions Japanese man.   They lurk around you, in you, and through you on a daily basis, because a heart unclaimed is easily possessed.  You are fine tuned to tune them out because of your conditioning.   You were hard wired to disavow their very existence.   You were institutionalized and re-infused to worship white people, like Mathew Perry, rather than your own national heroes.     



The Iron Laws of History is a book drug around by ball and chain  and all is remembered.     The Marianas is one such plane full of the souls of men who locked the throttle upon seeing their target.     Their souls have never been reclaimed.   Some have remembered; some have even thrown flowers into the darkness of her belly.   The oceans know for it wreaks of the remains of those who were duty bound to carry on in the face of mother death, resting unclaimed.   


Whether their actions be deemed morally right or morally wrong  is a matter of interpretation.     We know the man who's hands loosed the atomic bomb.  He's in heaven today according to misguided Negroes and  White Americans because his actions saved lives, presumably.    Yes.  The bomb saved my life and yours O' tis of thee Sweet Land of Liberty.  Without the bomb I wouldn't be here in Japan today.    Thank god for the bomb.  Thank god for MacAuthur is what the Asians, Negroes, and Whites say.  This is their conditioning, too.    You are not alone in your delusions, Japanese man.   We are conditioned to rejoice in White America's brutality, like it's their Divine Right, to right the world for its transgressions but never for its own.  It is a sickness of the soul, and a disease that plagues the mind of the whole world.   We attach White gods to their Divine Right, like it's supposed to include us too.


Sunshine Rokuju is a 60 story building alongside Higashi Ikebukuro Chuo Park.  This whole area is a resting ground for souls who died during their incarceration.   The whole area was built on top of the original Sugamo Prison, a triple-maximum security facility that housed senior members of former War Prime Minister Hideki Tojo, and his war cabinet.    The Japanese refer to this prison as simply a "correctional facility."   Hardly  a facility designed to detain men who started World War 2.  These men died here for the punishment handed down by the White American courts, so in essence their souls linger here, but there ashes may be scattered elsewhere.    Here is one place.


Mitsubishi Corporation built Sunshine 60 over the prison in order to signify a new beginning that would usher in a new era of  prosperity.   At the time of completion it was the tallest building in the world only to be outdone by Building 63 in Korea a few years later.   This building is the symbol of the rebirth of the Japanese collective conscious to strive to move forward and to pursue  ambitious and lofty ideals like Democracy and Americanism.    The Japanese copied and repackaged everything they could get their hands on, and in many instances made significant improvements, especially in technology.   


In the afternoon the whole area is sprawling with shoppers in search of all the latest tech toys and gadgets.   Fashion boutiques and cafes abound all over this area.   You wouldn't even notice that there was a prison here, unless you looked carefully.   Sunshine 60, or Sunshine City as it's called nowadays by American apologist is a hyper mall and popular hangout for young people.   At night the place is claimed to be haunted.    In fact, it's a power spot.



Scattered amongst the leaves and stone monuments are homeless Japanese people, the outcaste of society.   The ostracized the disenfranchised.   The voiceless and the defenseless  men and women who lay in patches of dirt and refuse unclaimed, beaten up by ruffians at night, and who have no claim.   People walk passed these unlucky souls on their way to Sunshine City with their $5 dollar paper cup of coffee to spend $100.00 on a  pair of second hand panties at a boutique because it's cute.   There is no Sunshine in these parts of the city, just victims of the economic downturn.


The park has stone monuments of importance to the legacy left behind by the original architects.   The main stone reads Eternal Peace where  the execution grounds were.  Mr. Hideki Tojo was hanged along with seven high ranking members of his war cabinet.   Seishiro Itagaki, Tomoyuki Yamashita, Akira Muto, just to name a few.    They are remembered because they were accused of mass murder and  who were victimized and made an example of by an all white  partial court.    The Tokyo Tribunal and the legacy left behind at Sugamo Prison is a testament to White Justice, and this is why both the "Medina Standard" and  the "Yamashita Standard" had to be created and defined for future mass murders committed by U.S. Forces in Asia and  West Africa.


It was Douglas MacArthur along with the Pope who had hoped to spread Christian values and morals in Japan.  They succeeded in some areas, but where they had failed was when they did not demonstrate Christian virtues.    A key virtue of the Christian faith is forgiveness because without it there is no redemptions; central theme of  salvation!   Much controversy still surrounds Tomoyuki Yamashita's petition for leniency.    His appeal was rejected by Douglas Macurthur  twice.   Both men were Christians, but since General Tomoyuki was not a white Christian, MacArthur rejected his appeal.    White Christian soldiers have been receiving forgiveness and leniency for centuries by laws that were inspired by White people who swore by the Bible. 



American War Criminals:


  1. William Laws Calley a convicted war criminal lives today in America as a free man unbound 2013.   Found guilty of mass murder for his role in the My Lai Massacre.  He only served 3 years in prison for the murder of thousands of non-white women and children.  He  walks around today a free man.  
  2. Samuel Koster- was discharged over the same incident.
  3. Ernest Medina - free man.
  4. And then lastly but not least Robert McNamara the brains behind the Vietnam War.    Experts blame his failures in Vietnam for his lack of understanding of the history of the region.   Just another cover up for his own murders and aggression in Vietnam.    This man is laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery  at this plot:  Plot: Section 2, Grave 1233-A












We remember those that sacrificed their lives for something.    In Japan, often times you will see Memorials and Parks build alongside each other.   It's not uncommon here.   One contentious issue that occurred  during the Bush Administration was when he hosted a State visit for former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi.   They both visited Arlington Cemetery  to honor the fallen who fought in all wars for North America from as far back as the Civil War.    Someone mentioned a comparison between both Arlington and Yasukuni.


Arlington is claimed to inter soldiers who did not fight wars of aggression and invasion.  This is left up to interpretation.  Okinawa was an act of aggression, Iraq was an act of aggression. Afghanistan was an act of aggression.  Bay of Pigs was an invasion and aggression.  Arlington claims that it does not inter soldiers who were dishonorably discharged, fair enough, but neither does Yasukuni Shrine, only noble souls are interred there.   There are no remains of dead soldiers at Yasukuni Shrine, not even urned remains.   It's a Japanese shrine where the memory of soldiers are honored by the bereaved.   Yasukuni inters war criminals.  Arlington inters Robert McNamara, and many more suspected murderers, rapist, and baby killers.   Go figure.    Arlington inters many races of people from a variety of different religions, so does Yasukuni Shrine.  There are mixed-nationalities, Ainu, Korean and Chinese soldiers who are interred at Yasukuni Shrine who are not of the Shinto Faith, but embrace Buddhism which is a foreign religion.  The likes of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu were never enshrined at Yasukuni for their atrocities committed overseas.  The horrors of Mimizuka will never be forgotten, and neither will Tokugawa's defiance of the Emperor's rule.  Yasukuni Shrine is not a place that glorifies atrocities, only the men who sacrificed their lives for the State.   Like Tomoyuki,  was made a scapegoat for loosing the war, not necessarily for atrocities claimed.   Had Japan won the war then who knows what history would've claimed.


If Yasukuni glorifies war, then so does Native American  museums and U.S. military exhibitions held on bases and overseas.   Memorial Day is when people remember the fallen who fought in numerous wars at home and abroad.   Air Shows which showcase American air power.  At the Smithsonian Museum you can see the Enola Gay Bomber on full display which dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  This is the best example of glorifying war along with the proposed reenactment of the Hiroshima bombing at U.S. Air Shows.  You best believe G.I. Joe, and America honors its war heroes who without a doubt have murdered thousands of innocent civilians and combatants in the name of freedom.   Benign in comparison to what goes on at Yasukuni Shrine where most people either pray or attend festivals honoring  the gods and their fallen.   They have flea markets here on the weekends sometimes and summer festivals for families.   On special occasion you can see old men in their 80s and 90s dressed up in military gear marching to bugles and drums.   This is hardly glorifying war, yet in America we make war heroes buffed up in macho gear and crew cuts and blockbuster movies showing indiscriminate murder in foreign lands against non-white people.
