This article is intended to analyze the impacts of China's Cultural Revolution on Japan, from the social, political, literary and cultural perspectives in an attempt to demonstrate the characteristic of the Japanese intelligentsia's response, as well as to prove that the Cultural Revolution is a global revolutionary storm. This article also focuses on Kazumi Takahashi, who was a litterateur as well as one of the witnesses of the Cultural Revolution. He regarded Cultural Revolution as the “moral movement” from the approach of “as a human being,” which was quite different from the other intelligentsia.
