repost: What if Japan was divided up after WW2? 二次大戰終日本如果這樣被裂解?

Last updated 3/4/2014 7:08 am @ Taipei, Taiwan – Wow I didn’t know this was being considered at the time.  How interesting…  The map was the proposed division of Japan after their un-conditional surrendering after the atomic bombs were dropped.  The Asia theater would be a very different scene today I think.

Proposed division of Japan after WW2 ended...

日本如果這樣被裂解?
What if Japan were divided up as the map suggested?

二次大戰終了前 美、蘇、英、中同盟國曾協議戰後分別佔領日本的方案.
At end of world war II  USA, USSR, UK, and ROC (Republic of China, KMT) were negotiating and proposing occupying Japan together.

按照計畫關東、中部、近畿、琉球由美國佔領.
According to the plan Kanto, central area, Kinki, Ryuki would be occupied by USA.

九州、中國地方由英國佔領 Kyushu, China (an area in Japan SouthWest on the main island) would be occupied by UK.

北海道、東北地方由蘇聯佔領
Hokkaido, Tohoku would be occupied by USSR

中華民國可單獨佔領四國地方
Shinkoku would be occupied by ROC.

大阪由美國與中華民國共同佔領
Osaka will be occupied by both USA and ROC.

東京則由四個國家共同佔領。
Tokyo would be occupied by all four countries USA, USSR, UK, ROC.

或許是從德國的分割佔領經驗中學到教訓
等到日本投降後
麥克阿瑟元帥撕毀原先的方案
決定由美國單獨佔領整個日本
Perhaps it was lessons learn from division Germany up…  after Japan surrendered General Douglas MacArthur cancelled the original proposal above and he decided that USA would occupy Japan exclusively.

不過
蘇聯早已迅速攻佔了千島與南樺太
正準備登陸北海道
However, USSR already quickly occupied South Sakhalin and the Kuril and was preparing to land and occupy Hokkaido.

為此
麥克阿瑟發出嚴重通牒
警告蘇聯不許輕舉妄動
美軍連夜搶佔北海道
保住了日本本土的統一
For that, General MacArthur issued serious ultimatum warning USSR not to act rashly and stay put.  USA forces moved quickly to occupy Hokkaido over night and was able to keep the main Japan island together.

如果不是麥克阿瑟
日本很可能走上德國與朝鮮的發展途徑
If it wasn’t for General MacArthur the Japan would have likely ended up like German and Korea – one country divided!!

亦即
美、英、中佔領區合併回復日本國
而蘇聯佔領區成立「日本人民民主共和國」

如此一來,日本將分裂為「北日」與「南日」
甚至「北日」在東京還擁有一塊飛地呢

這種狀況沒有成真
日本人或許應該感謝麥克阿瑟的「再造之恩」
