20 Fascinating Black and White Photographs Portray Images of Japanese Children After World War II

This was a period of remarkable fortunes for Japan, spanning the Sino-Japanese War, the Second World War and Japan's ultimate defeat, a period of recovery and reconstruction from the ravages of war, through to the country's period of rapid economic growth. It was an unprecedented period in which even the children were caught up in the dramatic changes in living environments and values.

No matter how difficult things are, the smiling faces of the children never fail to fill us with strength and hope. Although many were poor, it was a time when children gathered in back alleys and in streets to play, and helped their parents as much as they could. The photos of the children of the Showa period depict both their bright and sunny demeanors and the toughness and resilience they displayed in the face of poverty and adversity.
