Abstract

Childhood Days serves as a metaphor for Japan's transformation after World War II from a militaristic nation wedded to the past to a technological powerhouse shaping the future. A small bookish young boy flees Tokyo to live with family members in the countryside. He outwits the class bully, his strong, tough, and hard-working cousin, to become a new leader.
