Yoshiko Sakurai (櫻井 良子 Sakurai Yoshiko?, born 10 October 1945, Hanoi, Vietnam) is a Japanese journalist, TV presenter, and writer. She is also president of the Japan Institute for National Fundamentals, established in 2007.[1]

History Edit

After graduating from Nagaoka high school, she entered Keio University. Later she graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, majoring in history.

Sakurai started her career as a journalist for the Christian Science Monitor in Tokyo. She served as a news presenter on Nippon Television's late night news programme, Kyo-no-dekigoto, from 1980 to 1996. She is best known for her work on the HIV-tainted blood scandal in Japan during the 1990s. She is critical of the traditional historical view of the Nanking Massacre, along with Tokyo governor Shintaro Ishihara and other Japanese conservative revisionists.

Controversial views Edit

When talking about the comfort women issue being taught about in schools, Sakurai insists "all the textbooks... assume 'taken by force' as a major premise; however,... it is my conviction that (the women) were not 'taken by force.'"[citation needed]
