Renaming S’pore as Syonan-to does not express approval of Japanese Occupation

Singapore by any other name is still Singapore.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe naming things does not mean you need to approve of it, said renaming Singapore as Syonan-to now does not express approval of Japanese Occupation.

This after the permanent World War II exhibition at the Old Ford Factory at Upper Bukit Timah has been named Syonan Gallery: War and Its Legacies.

One Singaporean, Loh Mee Yeo, said: “Singapore being called Syonan-to is no different from naming our WWII exhibition as Syonan.”

“It’s just semantics.”

“Singapore by any other name is still Singapore as long as you know it intimately in your heart.”

Other locals said naming Singapore as Syonan-to has its benefits.

Another local, Ji Poon Kwee, said: “From now on, people around the world will no longer mistake Singapore as part of China.”

“We will be known as part of the Imperial Island of Japan, where they have the best cheese cakes and best videos.”

They worry Singapore is reverting back to Syonan-to, they said.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who treasure the Singaporean way of life and are fully aware of what happened during the Japanese Occupation of Singapore during World War II, have come out to express their concerns.

This after the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) announced the changes made to the SG50 red dot logo by removing the “50” and preserving only the “SG” in 2016.

This sparked widespread fear among the population as Singaporeans expressed their concern that the logo might become the Japanese flag by 2017, once the “SG” word is also removed and the country might be renamed Syonan-to as a museum has already been renamed as Syonan.

One Singaporean, Zi Poon Kwee, said he feared for his life and for his family’s safety: “If Singapore becomes Syonan-to again, does it mean we have to eat sweet potato and ration water for three years and eight months?”

“I hope the government can come out and clarify this issue because I have paid the down payment for my executive condo unit already.”

Other Singaporeans, however, were more hopeful.

Oh Tah Koo, another local, who also wants to be called Matsumoto Hiroshi, said: “Kawaii desu ka!”

“Japanese culture number one!”

“AV!”
