There are the natural ways that the people expect other people to behave. However, for the same people to act in the same exact intentions expected, then they will be fulfilling the wishes of the people who silently hold these intentions. The visit by the Japanese Prime Minister on the war shrine sparked different takes on different parts of the globe. The most affected countries were China and Korea. This was because of the bad war memories the shrine has. This attracted attention on different parts of the worlds under different perspectives. For instance, the Japanese felt that he was just fulfilling a duty as a faithful citizen. For the Chinese and the Koreans, they felt that the Japanese were out to embarrass them and they also felt that the Japanese were more inclined to mocking them rather than paying the respects to the fallen soldiers. There are many people who wrote about the incident and different media groups had different takes on the way to present this case. An analysis on one of the written pieces examines the different intentions that might have been harbored by the writer together with the media fraternity that he represented. The choice of words together with other elements of language is examined thoroughly in this analysis. The choice of words in particular help in understanding the intentions together with the emotions if there were in the writing of the piece. Tabuchi wrote about this too and carefully examined the story well.
He wrote this for the rest of the world and that he intended the message to reach as far as wanted to reach in terms of informing people. This was done in a way that portrayed that he wanted to pass across the important message of the events that had happened in Japan. The purpose and the subject of the message that was being passed across was a peaceful message that was largely written for the purpose of informing the rest of the world. However, with careful analysis of the text that was written, we find the true intention of the writer as well as the hidden intentions and the different emotions that might be carried across by the writer.
There are several details that may alter the way that the reader may feel about the subject at hand. The different talks that have been given by the respective people from the different countries may be used to show that indeed there was unrest that was imminent between these countries. The way the writer has elaborated the different pieces of news from the neighboring leaves paths that show that the Prime Minister is also wary of the fact that the neighboring countries do not share a common peaceful ground on many issues.
The Prime Minister of Japan, Mr. Abe, visited the war shrine on the purpose of paying respects to the dead soldiers only. He is rather disappointed that such a simple action would cause unrest in the neighboring countries over problems that were present in the 20th Century. He says that he regrets not visiting the place while he was on the first term at office. He says that it is a conviction that was based on the sorrow for the fallen soldiers and that he would not do anything that would cause unrest in the neighboring countries intentionally. However, he is misinterpreted by the neighboring China and Korea who mistake this action to be purely based on causing unrests in the region. The document written by Tabuchi reveals that there were no other hidden intentions that would have been held while the document was being written. This is seen as there are no vague expressions and unclear parts that would not support the intended message.
In conclusion, the message that was intended by the writer is passed on without being altered or having hidden intentions. The writer takes his time in doing the full research on the matter at hand to make sure that the intended message is what is passed to the reader. The audience receivers this message in the best way since the writer went a step further into writing about the reactions that the other neighboring countries had and what the Prime Minister said in return. The document has been given in the best way possible since it explains where the source of the misunderstanding might be and thus prompts no further research by the reader since every bit of information that the writer needs is taken care of in the document.
