Japan has long been obsessed with the end of the world.

But when the country’s government announces the first phase of a national nuclear test in 2020, the country will have experienced its most apocalyptic phase in the past two centuries.

That’s the conclusion of a new book about how the country came to obsess over the end.

“I think it’s something that the country was really trying to push back against, to push the concept of apocalyptic,” says Naomi Nagashima, a senior fellow at the London-based Chatham House think tank.

Japan’s political leaders, she says, were keen to try to avoid a repeat of the atomic bomb test.

“Japan was a bit afraid of what might happen, but in reality they wanted to be prepared,” Nagashim says.

“They wanted to have some kind of deterrent to the world that might prevent it from happening again.”

Nagashimura was at a dinner party in Japan’s capital, Tokyo, in January of this year when she heard the country had declared an all-out nuclear test.

The government had set the test date for May 23, 2020, and had just begun construction of a test site.

A bomb explosion at a nuclear reactor at Tokyo’s Sendai nuclear power plant killed more than 160 people.

Nagashisa was at the table with her husband and two children when she began reading aloud from a Japanese book she had read years earlier.

She read it to her husband, who had never heard of it before.

Nagashesima says her husband was surprised to hear that the book, titled The End of the World, is about the end times.

“And I said, ‘I’ve never read it, but it’s very good,'” she recalls.

Nagashi is the author of the new book, which examines how the Japanese obsession with Armageddon began in the early 1990s.

The book explores how the idea of Armageddon first came to be in Japan and how it spread through the country.

Nagishima says Japan’s national security establishment was not interested in talking about the apocalypse.

It was always about nuclear power, nuclear technology, and national security, she explains.

“So I think it was really quite a weird period in Japanese history.”

The book was first published in English by Chatham house in 2015.

She says it is not intended to be a definitive history, but to provide an overview of the phenomenon that spawned Japan’s current obsession with nuclear power and the end days of the planet.

“It’s really a history of the obsession with apocalyptic,” she says.

Nagasaki is the granddaughter of a teacher who was also a member of the government’s National Security Council during World War II.

Her father was the chief of the Japan Air Self Defense Force during the war, and she grew up hearing her father talk about Japan’s impending nuclear disaster.

She has a PhD in political science from Tokyo’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

She started her PhD at the University of Tokyo.

Nagasawa says the obsession has a long history.

During World War I, Nagasaki was home to a school for boys with an emphasis on reading.

In the 1950s, her father became a professor of political science at Tokyo University.

In 1957, Nagasato began teaching at Tokyo Metropolitan University, the oldest of Japan’s universities.

In 1967, she became the first female professor at Tokyo Central University.

She also earned her doctorate from the University for Peace Studies at Hiroshima University in 1974.

In 1997, Nagashihara was named the first Asian woman to teach in Japan.

She is now the director of the International Centre for the Study of the End of History and the End-of-World Theory at Tokyo Jukin University.
