AbstractA range of issues confronted government officials in the aftermath of the Great Kantō Earthquake, but almost immediately they began efforts to resume education. This article examines how educators overcame numerous challenges in order to recommence primary school education and return children to makeshift classrooms in the ruins of Tokyo. Education was viewed as an important means to help restore a sense of normality in the lives of displaced school children at this time of extraordinary upheaval. Educators were concerned not only with the material reconstruction and recovery of schools, but also the physical and mental recovery of children.
