This paper is comprised of the reproduction of a threemonth period of Torao Tago’s diary, which in total covers the six years from 1940 to 1945. Tago became famous after his play won second place in a creative writing contest sponsored by the magazine “KAIZO” in 1931. This period is covered in the diary, from April to June 1942. Tago had been writing novels all that time. His diary shows that while Japan was at war, it had little effect on the lives of the citizens of Tokyo.
