Aman Kimiko once said, “War and the guilt of self-existence are the foundation of my work.” Thus, her childhood experience in Manchuria (1931-1947) has had a profound influence on her writing. Those years had led her call into question the Japanese military killing the innocentcivilians, the colonial relationship between the ruling and the ruled, the double roles of kaitakudan as the victim and accomplice in the war, and the Japanese government's abandonment of kaitakudan people. How would she describe and express her experience in her writings? This article aims to give a textual analysis of Cloud, as well as her other Manchuria war-themed children's literature, aiming to investigate her views on Manchuria and war in general.
