Abstract

Japan's Longest Day is a dramatized version of the period between noon on August 14, 1945, when Emperor Hirohito (1901–1989) made the decision to surrender to the Allies in World War II and noon on August 15, 1945, when the emperor's recorded message announcing the surrender was broadcast to the Japanese people. The film was released in Japan on August 12, 1967, close to the anniversary of the surrender. This started a trend of releasing World War II films on the anniversary, which included Okamoto's 1971 film The Battle of Okinawa. It became the second highest grossing film in Japan in 1967.
