The two world wars have left wounds and memories to all Asian countries. Events in the war have made inevitable or coincidental impact on the cultures of all the countries engaged in war, while local assimilation has imprinted this imported culture with distinctive regional differences. As is mentioned in the works of Koki Tanaka, during the World War II American troops stationed in Japan introduced basketball into popular culture of Japanese youth. What unnoticed influences has war brought to our daily life? What kind of reflections -- in terms of the nature of war and the history and status quo of countries engaged in war -- can be inspired from scrutinizing these influences? What form do recollections of war take in daily language passed from mouth to mouth?
