On December 25, 1941, Hong Kong surrendered to the Japanese.


In the Philippines, the combined Filipino-American force was defeated by Japanese, forcing General Douglas MacArthur to flee.


On January 2, 1942, Manila was occupied by Japanese and over 70,000 American and Filipino were taken prisoners of war.


This is one of the worst defeats Americans suffered.


On February 15, 1942, Singapore fell to the Japanese.


As a result, an estimated 80,000 Indian, Australian and British troops were taken as prisoners of war and then 50,000 troops were taken due to the Japanese invasion of Malaya.


This is the largest surrender of British-led military personnel in history.

As of early 1942, it seemed that the Japanese troops were almost invincible.


However, more than 30 years before the attack on Pearl Harbor, a Japanese psychic had predicted the defeat of the Empire of Japan, contrary to all Japanese expectations.

Onisaburo Deguchi, a Great Psychic in Japan

Onisaburo Deguchi (1871-1948) was a great psychic of Japan in the early 1900s.

Deguchi Onisaburo (1871-1948) made a lot of predictions of the future and has been great influence on the Japanese spiritual culture.

He was a spiritual leader of Oomoto religious movement that had a great influence on the Japanese spiritual culture in the early 1900s.


He had a great ability to foretell the future and thus he left a voluminous amount of prophetic writings.


According to his followers, Onisaburo’s prediction has an accuracy of more than 95%.


Actually, Onisaburo made a huge number of predictions and many of them came true.


He was a marvelous prophet and thus he has received a great response in Japan in the early 1900s.


Even today, his predictions are coming true, such as Apple Watch, Multicoptor, Maglev and so on.

Onisaburo’s Predictions of the Defeat of Imperial Japan in WWII

Prediction 1: The Counterattack by the United States

On August 7, 1942, Onisaburo was released on bail.


He had been convicted and tried for lese majesty, that is, for plotting against the Imperial Japanese Government and Emperor Hirohito.

Onisaburo was convicted for plotting against Emperor Hirohito. Onisaburo was against war and thus he criticized the Imperial Japanese Government.

After he was released from the seven years of prison life, Onisburo predicted the defeat of the Imperial Japan in the Pacific War as follows.

From the day when I was released on bail, the Imperial Japan will begin to lose in the War.

Actually, Onisaburo had predicted the defeat of the Imperial Japan since 1903.


The leaders of Imperial Japanese Government had not believed his prophecy and they threw Onisaburo in prison, denouncing him as a traitor.


However, it was a curious coincidence, because, on the same day as Onisaburo made the above prediction, United States Marines landed on Guadalcanal in the southern Solomon Islands.

U.S. Marines landed on Guadalcanal on August 7, 1942

That day became a turning point, where the Imperial Japan began to lose in the War.


In this way, Onisaburo’s prediction came true.

Prediction 2: Bombing of Tokyo

Onisaburo also predicted the bombing of Tokyo.


In 1943, he said his followers.

You should evacuate from Tokyo, because Tokyo will suffer air raids.

On November 17, 1944, a year after the above prediction, the United States Army Air forces began to bomb Tokyo by B-29.

The city of Tokyo was burned out under B-29 firebomb assault on May 26, 1945.

Onisaburo also made predictions of bombings of the other cities of Japan.

Kyushu city will suffer air raids.


Carrier based airplanes will make house-to-house visits.

On 15-16 June, 1944, 75 B-29s were dispatched to attack the Imperial Iron and Steel Works at Yawata in northern Kyushu.


From March 1945, carrier aircraft of the US Navy attacked targets in Kyushu.


Amazingly, Onisaburo also predicted the cities which will never suffer air raids.

Kyoto and Kanazawa will not suffer air raids.

Actually, Kyoto was largely spared from conventional bombing.


Also, Kanazawa did not suffer air raids at all.


Many Japanese were amazed to find that all of Onisaburo’s predictions were came true without fail.

Prediction 3: Soviet Declaration of War against the Empire of Japan

In 1943, Onisaburo told his follower who was ordered to the front in Manchuria.

Japan will lose in this war.


If the Soviet Union comes out, the red flags will be placed to Dalian.

In January, 1943, he also predicted as follows,

Now, Japan is desperately fighting, looking towards the south only.


But, suddenly, a white monkey will scratch both eyes of Japan from behind (from the north).

At the time of 1943, most Japanese ridiculed Onisaburo, because the Empire of Japan had made the Japanese-Soviet Non-aggression Pact with the Soviet Union on April 13, 1941.


However, on August 8, 1945, the Soviets declared war against the Empire of Japan and then commenced their invasion on Manchuria in the north of China.


It was totally unexpected to Japanese people as well as the leaders of the Imperial Japanese Government.


It was Onisaburo only who foresaw that the Soviet Union would denounce the Non-aggression Pact with Japan and they would attack Japan from behind.


In this way, the whole world moved just as Onisaburo predicted.


He was a really amazing psychic.


Furthermore, Onisaburo had predicted the complete defeat of the Empire of Japan.
