Cool Japan Guide / The Gyokuon-hoso (玉音放送)

File:Imperial Rescript on the Termination of the War2.jpg

Today is the 67th Aniversary Day regarding the Termination of the World War II in 1945.
We, Japanese, hope and expect "World Peace" and also all the war or war like operation including civil war in Syria or so to be terminated very very soonest.
To remember the tragedy of World War II in Japan, today taking up herewith "The Gyokuon-hoso (玉音放送)".

The Gyokuon-hoso (玉音放送), lit. "Jewel Voice Broadcast", was the radio broadcast in which Japanese emperor Hirohito read out the Imperial Rescript on the Termination of the War (大東亜戦争終結ノ詔書), announcing to the Japanese people that the Japanese Government had accepted the Potsdam Declaration demanding the unconditional surrender of the Japanese military at the end of World War II.
This speech was broadcast at noon Japan standard time on August 15, 1945 after the Battle of Okinawa, the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the declaration of war against Japan by the Soviet Union.

Hirohito's speech marked what was probably the first time in history that an Emperor of Japan had spoken (albeit via a phonograph record) to the common people. The speech was delivered in the formal, Classical Japanese that few ordinary people could easily understand. Additionally, the speech made no direct reference to a surrender of Japan, instead stating that he had instructed his government to accept the terms of the Potsdam Declaration fully. This created confusion in the minds of many listeners who were not sure if Japan had surrendered or if Hirohito was exhorting them to resist the enemy invasion. The poor audio quality of the radio broadcast, as well as the formal courtly language in which the speech was composed, only compounded the confusion.
