Rationing:

All over Japan, rationing had been taking place during World War Two. Rationing is when food is controlled by the government.

In Japan, the government decided that the remaining food had to be shared because during World War Two there was not enough supplies. Food coming into Japan was stopped because ships carrying resources were being destroyed and what was left was given to the soldiers fighting the war.

During World War Two ,Japanese ate vegetables, sugar, seafood, dairy goods, and rice .Rations for adults included only 1.3 to 1.8 ounces of meat and 1.8 ounces of fish a day, and every Japanese person received a ration book during the war containing stamps that could be used for certain items, stamps could buy the food or water. If they had no more stamps you couldn't buy anything in the next month. After 1944, even in the school fields they changed them in to farms where they grew sweet potatoes ,they ate every part of the sweet potato ,and for the protein, they ate beetles, beetle larvae, every insects found on the farm ,although they ate like this, there was still not enough foods, and in the end ,the rations were rarely distributed.

Daily Lives:

In December 1943 Japanese Ministry of Education first evacuation kids, they let kids go to live with their family, and by the end of the war, 1, 303, 200 children had been.

The Japanese making farm every day just because they wanted more food for themself, they ate the insect, and sweet potatoes, they couldn't had enough food for every day.

The government used propaganda heavily and planned in minute detail regarding the mobilization of manpower, identification of critical choke points, food supplies, logistics, air raid shelters, and the evacuation of children and civilians from the targeted cities. Food supplies were very tight before the heavy bombing began in fall 1944, then grew to the crisis.

All of the powers used lessons from their experiences on the home front during World War I. Their success in mobilizing economic output was a major factor in supporting combat operations. Among morale-boosting activities that also benefited combat efforts, the home front engaged in a variety of scrap drives for materials crucial to the war effort such as metal, rubber, and rags. Such drives helped strengthen civilian morale and support for the war effort. Each country tried to suppress rumors, which typically were negative or defeatist.

Propaganda

Propaganda was like newspaper was spread out something which is false to mislead the people.

During World War II, the Japanese government didn't tell people not to ask men to join the army, they didn't tell people how to continue to attack, keep calm and move on.

However, there is don't need propaganda in Japan, because the Japanese government already know that citizens are definitely.

The 'home front' covers the activities of the civilians in a nation at war. World War II was a total war; homeland production became even more invaluable to both the Allied and Axis powers. Life on the home front during World War II was a significant part of the war effort for all participants and had a major impact on the outcome of the war.
