This chapter discusses the legal, historical, didactic, and political legacies of the trial. In contrast to most findings of the Tribunal, the findings of the Tokyo IMT on civilians and command responsibility are shown to have had a considerable influence on the Yugoslavia Tribunal. The Trial's findings on history are shown to have had an ambiguous impact in Japan, although not in a manner in which is often thought. The idea that there is simply one view of the Tokyo IMT in Japan is critiqued. The influence of the Tribunal on contemporary debates, such as that over the Yasukuni shrine, and textbooks in Japan is discussed, as well as the controversy over the Rape of Nanking.
