Three men and one woman, all dressed in contemporary post-war clothing, walk with work-related items, heading off to their different jobs. All of the people are smiling with crowns upon their heads, implying that all of them (and all people) are important. The Japanese text near the bottom reads 誰もが貴い (Dare mo ga tōtoi) meaning "everyone is precious". The image symbolizes how nations came to realize that human rights are very important and should not be violated.

Thanks to the efforts of people like these, people learned that all humans are precious and are not to be discriminated against by anyone. Nations came to realize that the well-being and safety of their people should not be encroached upon. In this way, as a consequence of the French Revolution, these ideals finally came to be put into practice.

This idea of basic human rights having been transmitted to them, the suppressed and tormented people in the English colonies in America promulgated the famous “Declaration of Independence” in 1776, just one step ahead of the French Revolution. Following this, small countries such as Greece and Belgium who were controlled by more powerful countries also began to proclaim their independence one after the other. And so, various small countries throughout the world began to institute free and bright democratic governments. In the midst of this general world-wide trend, what, then, was Japan doing?

A samurai wearing a silk kimono with two Katana Samurai swords sheathed at his side lays on the ground. One hand holds a white paper fan, and the other is on his face. This man is depicted sleeping; eyes closed and a snot bubble coming out of his nose, and his mouth wide open. The characters on his garment are 封建 (Hōken) meaning "Feudal" or "Feudalistic". This slumbering samurai symbolizes Japan's long seclusion policy, and how they were completely unaware of the events occurring around them, thus essentially 'sleeping' for 200 years.

After Shogun Iemitsu Tokugawa proclaimed an official policy of seclusion, Japan remained completely unaware of foreign affairs and maintained a long, 300-year period of slumber. To the samurai class, who had the “right to kill with impunity” anyone in the peasant or merchant classes, such a thing as basic human rights was unthinkable. When Japan suddenly awakened from their long slumber after hearing the cannon blasts from the Black Ships that appeared at Uraga in 1853, they could only wonder in amazement at the progress of the other countries of the world.

A contemporary male boxer wearing green shorts punches a Samurai in the face. The Samurai is wearing a blue silk kimono with the characters 幕府 (Bakufu) meaning "Shogunate" and has two Katana Samurai swords stuck through him, and an expression of horror on his face, eyes wide and mouth hanging open. The boxer symbolizes the Western culture and the Samurai symbolizes the Tokugawa government. The punch symbolizes the destruction of the Feudal system through the adoption of Western ideas.

A sudden blast of wind from the outside world blew into Japan when it went from a closed country to an open country. For the first time, the common people found that the shogun, daimyo, or samurai’s ability to do as they pleased and trample them underfoot was intolerable, and they overthrew the Tokugawa government and destroyed the feudal system. That was the Meiji Restoration.

The image symbolizes that the Japanese were hurrying to catch up to Western countries by establishing a Constitution, and adopting their clothing style.

During this period, people were learning about all sorts of things from foreign countries and, thinking that Japanese culture had fallen behind, they wanted to quickly catch up. Because of that, moreover, there were strong, repeated requests for a parliament to be established and a constitution to be decided upon. In this way, in the 22nd year of Meiji (1889), the Meiji Constitution was finally enacted. Now, people’s property and assets were protected from being arbitrarily taken away by those who ran the government. People were also not to be jailed without due cause and violating the freedom and rights of citizens was determined to be impermissible.

Two upper-class men wearing Victorian clothing with top hats and mustaches also wearing work aprons over their nice clothing, hold construction tools and build an edifice, which is the characters 憲法 (Kenpō) meaning "Constitution". They are figuratively building the constitution. Additional tools and woodchips lay on the ground. This is a visual analogy of the Constitution of the Empire of Japan being created by people who already held power and therefore were unconcerned with fundamental human rights, uncaring if they properly protected the rights of the people.

However, this constitution differed from the constitutions of other countries in a few ways. That is to say, this constitution was created by those who were already in positions of power or who were already established within the government. Therefore, the commitment to fundamental human rights was lukewarm at best.

The rationale behind the Meiji Constitution was not that freedoms and rights were received from Heaven by humans and granted at birth, but instead were rights extended within the purview of the law, and the law determined how much freedom and rights could be curtailed. In this way, the overtures within the Constitution towards establishing human rights were lukewarm. One reason this was so is that the citizenry did not yet clearly understand how precious basic human rights are.

The crying nation symbolizes the suffering of Japanese citizens under the harsh military personnel, and the man symbolizes the new constitution trying to ease their suffering.

In order to accomplish their personal aspirations, military personnel completely disregarded the rights of the people. They made it so that citizens were not allowed to freely express their thoughts or opinions and arrested those who stood in opposition to government policies one after the other. They ended up starting the Pacific War. Because of this, Japanese citizens had to experience the miserable hardships of defeat in war. The citizens knew that they didn’t want this to happen again, so they conducted a comprehensive reflection on the previous way of thinking. It is these circumstances that ushered in the establishment of a new constitution.

A happy Japanese family sits around a table, eating dinner together, a custom adopted after the new constitution, in place of man and woman eating separately from each other. The parents are wearing traditional clothing, and the children are wearing western clothing. The family is using western utensils and tableware, also potentially eating western food. A medium-sized circular brick wall surrounds the family, and it is labeled 新憲法 (Shin kenpō), meaning "new constitution". This symbolizes the new constitution protecting the family and equal rights. Bullets ricochet off of the wall, symbolizing that the new constitution will not allow harm to come to the family.

A large man in a modern Western business suit with 最高裁判所 (Saikō saibansho) [Supreme Court] written on his sleeves stands with his arms raised out to his sides, warding off an old man labeled 悪法 (Akuhō), meaning "Bad Law", holding a mace. This symbolizes the Supreme Court protecting its Japanese people from bad laws that would violate their rights.

A man, with furrowed brows and a mouth open as if he is speaking loudly wearing a white suit and mustache, stands at a podium with a microphone. His arm is raised, pointing to the sky. He is speaking to a large crowd, comprised of many men and only three women facing away from him with expressions that appear angry, confused, and worried. The man symbolizes a misuse of the newfound freedom of expression.

However, these basic human rights must be exercised for the benefit of a wide variety of people. Expressing one’s own opinion is one component of fundamental human rights, but one should not express opinions that do not benefit people by writing books or in other ways. Freedom does not mean that you do not think of the burden you are placing upon others and doing whatever you wish.

There is a birdcage, and an arm labeled with 新憲法 (Shin kenpō), meaning "new constitution" reaches in to open it, releasing four birds. The pink bird has a cross around its neck, the blue bird has a book under its wing and a container of ink, the red bird has a bag labeled 財 (Zai) which means "fortune". The green bird has a broken chain around its neck. These birds being freed symbolize the Constitution giving human rights.

A small thin man with a suit and top hat stands atop of the large characters ヨーロッパ諸国 (Yōroppa shokoku), meaning ‘European countries', and reaches for a red, heart-shaped fruit labeled 基本的人権 (Kihonteki jinken), "Basic human rights". This symbolizes how Japan can obtain basic human rights easier, partially because European countries have already fought for them and set a precedent.

We Japanese have just now undergone the most painful of hardships, that of being defeated in war. Our houses were burned down, and many of our fellow countrymen have died. As a result, we have been granted something precious. This time for certain, no matter what happens, we the citizens of Japan with all our might must protect it and defend it against violation.
