This propaganda film was produced by the U.S. Treasury Department in 1945 in an effort to promote War Bond sales.

My Japan might be described as a heavy-handed attempt to elicit angry responses from American citizens regarding Japan’s audacity as well as contempt for their own materialistic values.

Although it now seems ludicrous with a Caucasian narrator made up to look and sound stereotypically Japanese, it is interesting to note the emphasis on hard work, perseverance, sacrifice, austerity and the need to support the war effort financially.
