ABSTRACT: This article discusses the reception of psychoanalysis in Japan during 1912-1952. For Japan, the arrival of psychoanalysis in the country is included in the series of receptions from abroad. The period 1912-1952 falls at the start of the midphase of the modern period in Japan, whose onset can be dated from either the 1853 arrival of the letter of U.S. President Millard Fillmore pressuring Japan to end its period of seclusion or from the 1868 Meiji Restoration. By 1890, Japan became a nation of the emperor system, which provided the political and cultural backdrop for the 1912 entry of psychoanalytic ideas. Historically, the reception of trends has been determined by the nature and degree of conflict with the emperor system. While the reception of psychoanalysis can hardly be regarded as an ideology dangerously inimical to the emperor system, voices from reactionary oppression were heard against psychoanalysis.
