This graph depicts the extent to which the word 'Japan' was found in Australian newspapers/journals from 1800-1955. Although there were many mentions in the early 1800's, these are specifically related to Japanese clothing and various miscellaneous items. Instead the most significant aspect in this graph is the spike in the 1940's, where Australia was at war with Japan.
