RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $3380Goal: $3500

Naoki Hyakuta (百田 尚樹, 1956-) is a Japanese far-right author, and a former NHKWikipedia Executive Committee.

He is an anti-Chinese and anti-Korean bigot, as well as a negationist.

He has a considerable public popularity in Japan, and is also frequently seen in mainstream broadcasting and mass media. If it were the U.S. or Europe, it would be unimaginable.

Shinzo Abe is a favourite reader of Naoki Hyakuta.


In 2006, he published the Military novel Eien no Zero (永遠の0).

In 2016 he published the book Kaeru no Rakuen (カエルの楽園). This book is bigoted against Chinese people.

His latest book, a history of Japan published in 2018, was discovered to contain fictitious statements as well as plagiarism from sources such as Wikipedia articles,[1] the latter being admitted by the author himself.[2]
