Abstract

In this article, the author attempts to clarify three aspects of Štefánik's visit to Japan on the basis of little known Japanese materials: 1) The Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs received a summary of M.R. Štefánik's life and career in English as official information and had it translated into Japanese. 2) In the Diplomatic Archive of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Tokyo, we found a written record in Japanese of Štefánik's visit to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on 15 October 1918. In this document with the title "Matter: Meeting of the representative of the minister Shidehara with General Štefánik", Štefánik still emphasizes the German threat as an argument for escalation of the Japanese expedition in Siberia, which would enable the Czechoslovak Legions to return home from Siberia sooner. 3) A group including M. Janin and M.R. Štefánik spent four days in the city of Kyoto (9-12 November 1918). Their most noteworthy activity was a visit to the important Japanese businessman Kacutaró Inabata, which was reported in detail in the regional daily.
