Mr. Fujino

When Zhou Shurenjun was studying at Sendai Medical College, an anatomy professor named Yanjiro Fujino took great care of him, carefully revised his class notes, cared about his language barriers, and board and lodging issues, and encouraged him constantly. By the third year, however, Zhou Shujun decided to drop out of school. Mr. Fujino regretted that Zhou Shuren felt ashamed of his teacher.

When parting, Fujino gave Zhou Shuren a photo of himself, and the inscription on the back showed the deep friendship between the teacher and student. Zhou Shurenjun did not have a suitable photo rebate at that time, said that he had sent it in the future, and also said that he would keep informed of his condition. However, when he left, no photos were sent and no letter was seen. His own description of this is: “After I left Sendai, I have not taken pictures for many years, and because of the situation is boring, and it is nothing to disappoint him, so he dare not even write a letter. After more than one year, words There is no way to talk about it, so although I sometimes want to write a letter, it is difficult to write, so that I have not sent a letter or a photo. ”

In fact, during that time, he returned to China to look for a job, took photos, and was very handsome. But he didn’t send it in his own mood. What he called “the situation is boring” means that the situation is very bad. Because in those years, the angry young Zhou Shuren searched for light in the dark and bumped against the wall.

At that time, his academic level was already very high, and he could be described as having extensive knowledge and profound thinking. In the second year after he dropped out of school, he wrote several ancient articles, including “History of Man,” “History of Science History,” “The Theory of Cultural Deviation,” and “The Theory of Moro Poetic Power.” Until now, the evaluation is still very high. But at the time, no one paid attention to his articles.

In 1918, the 37-year-old Zhou Shuren published his novel “The Madman’s Diary” under the pseudonym “Lu Xun”, taking the first step to becoming a literary hero. In 1926, 45-year-old Mr. Lu Xun published the prose “Mr. Fujino”. In 1931, a friend wrote to ask him if Isou Fujino’s real name? Lu Xun wrote back to say his real name, and then said that he missed Mr. Fujino. He once asked a friend in Japan to inquire about his recent situation, but was informed that Sendai Medical College was incorporated into the Tohoku Imperial University more than a decade ago, and the staffing was reduced. Mr. Fujino resigned. Now Whereabouts are unknown.

Why is he looking for Mr. Fujino again now? One came, of course, because of miss. Secondly, more importantly, his status is completely different. He is still bumping against the wall, but now he is a giant, but bumping against the wall is falling, and it is ruined!

In 1931, Japanese student Masuda came to Shanghai to study in Shanghai, with Mr. Lu Xun as a teacher. Lu Xun taught young students that they have always been attentive, and they took extra care of this Japanese student, just like Fujino’s style.

In 1934, the owner of the Japanese publisher Iwanami Bookstore came to Shanghai to visit Mr. Lu Xun, requesting the translation of Lu Xun’s anthology and publishing in Japan. They finally selected two translators, one of which was Lu Xun’s student Masuda and the other was Japanese poet Sato Haruo. Lu Xun said you can choose the article, but there is a “Mr. Fujino” must be included, I hope to take this opportunity to find Mr. Fujino.

In 1935, the anthology was published in Japan. Lu Xun repeatedly inquired about Iwabo Bookstore, Masuda, and Sato Haruo for information about Mr. Fujino, and found nothing.

In October 1936, 55-year-old Mr. Lu Xun died in Shanghai, and there was a picture of Fujino on his bedside.

Knowing his regrets, his friends continued to look for Mr. Fujino for him, even if they found Mr. Fujino’s descendants. At the end of 1936, Lu Xun’s Japanese classmate Shigeru Kobayashi finally found Mr. Fujino. It turns out he is still alive!

Fujino Yankuro was born in 1874. Da Lu Xun is 7 years old. He has practiced medicine for generations, and he himself graduated from the Aichi Prefectural Medical School (now the School of Medicine of Nagoya University). From 1903 to 1915 he was a professor of anatomy at Sendai Medical College.

Mr. Fujino did, as Lu Xun wrote, sloppy, but extremely professional. The scores were given strictly and rigidly during the exam. Some students reiterated because their anatomy score was lower than 50, so they hated Fujino.

Although Fujino carefully taught Zhou Shuren, his grades for Zhou Jun in the three semesters were 60, 60, and 58 respectively. However, even such a score has caused Zhou Jun trouble. Some people in the school think that Chinese students cannot get such a high score. Mostly Fujino missed the question on Zhou Shuren’s notes and took Zhou Shuren’s notes. Investigated. The matter was quite humiliating, and Lu Xun wrote it in the prose “Mr. Fujino”.

In 1915, Sendai Medical College was merged into the Tohoku Imperial University. At that time, the Japanese university was Chong Yangmei, and 41-year-old Fujino Yankuro was unemployed because he had no experience studying abroad. Then he tried to find a professorship in another school, but all were rejected. In desperation, Fujino went to Tokyo to study clinical surgery and study medicine. After graduation, he went to a charity hospital in Tokyo to work as a doctor, but soon lost his job. While he was looking for work, his wife died of illness.

In other words, when Zhou Shuren bumped into a wall in China, Mr. Fujino bumped into a wall in Japan. It is just that he does not have the ability like Zhou Shuren.

Middle-aged was unemployed and lost his wife many times, and the frustrated Fujino Yankuro had to return to his hometown of Fukui Prefecture and defect to his second brother Fujino Akira. Ming Erlang opened a small clinic in the town, and kept Yan Jiuro here to practice medicine.

After all, Fujino Yankuro went to university to be a professor outside. He still has a little face in his rural hometown, so he was able to remarry and marry a second wife. Xinzhangren funded an ear and nose clinic for him, and he started to go it alone.

Manuscript of prose “Mr. Fujino”

However, the next year, Akira Fujino died suddenly. Mingjiro’s child was too young to support the clinic, and it was difficult to maintain his life. Yan Jiurang went to Mingjiro’s clinic every other day to maintain his business. So he ran between the two clinics on both ends of the year, supporting two people.

Fujino Yankuro has taught for many years, has a straight temper and is rigid. He is very bad at receiving patients. Fortunately, he practiced medicine seriously, the two clinics could barely open. The residents of the mountain village are poor, and Fujino Yankuro charges very low. When the patient has no money, he simply treats it for free. Although his life was stretched, he was respected locally.

In 1919, Mr. Fujino was 45 years old, and his wife gave him a son, named Fujino Hiromi. Having a middle-aged child is also a life comfort. Two years later his wife gave birth to another son.

In 1935, when Hiroshi Fujino was in high school, one day his teacher, Mr. Haochun Lao, called Hengmi, and handed him a book, saying, “This new book is a collection of prose written by Chinese scholar Lu Xun, There was a person named Yanjiro Fujino, with the same name as your father. Take it back and ask if your father is him. “That year, Mr. Fujino was 61 years old.

On that day, Hengya handed over to Fujino’s anthology from a Chinese writer, and showed him that “Mr. Fujino”. Fujino reads about himself 30 years ago when he was giving a class to students in Sendai: I am called Fujino Yankuro …

At the end of that “Mr. Fujino” wrote: “I have made three thick copies of the lecture notes he has corrected, and the collection will be a permanent memorial. Unfortunately, when I moved to China 7 years ago, I destroyed a bookcase halfway through, I lost half a box of books, and it happened that this handout was also included. He instructed the transportation bureau to look for it, and there was no reply. Only his photo is still hanging on the east wall of my apartment in Beijing, opposite the desk. Whenever I feel tired at night, I think When I was lazy, I glanced up at his dark and thin face in the light. It seemed that he was about to say the words of frustration and frustration, which suddenly made me discover with conscience and increased courage, so I lit a cigarette and continued to write something like ‘Gentleman It ’s a horrible text. ”

The front of the volume of this essay was printed with a photo of Mr. Lu Xun. Fujino slowly took a magnifying glass and said, “Really Zhou Jun!”

After closing the scrolls, he stayed alone for a while. Finally he said to his son, “It’s me. But don’t tell others.”

Fujino Hiromi was very obedient. He did not tell others about such a glorious thing. But when Teacher Haochun asked him again, he was not good at lying, so he told the teacher truthfully. Teacher Yun came to visit Fujino Yankuro, and they chatted for a long time. After the teacher left, she never mentioned it to others. So, although Fujino’s famous name was talked about by readers in China and Japan, no one knew that the real Fujino was still making a living in a remote mountain village.

In October 1936, the death of Wenhao Lu Xun was reported in Japan. According to Fujino’s nephew, Fujino looked at the photos of Lu Xun in the newspaper, raised the newspaper over his head, and worshiped for a few weeks.

At the end of the year, Lu Xun’s friend Shigeru Kobayashi found Mr. Fujino. Fujino then knew that Lu Xun not only hung his photos on the wall, but wrote him in prose. He had been looking for him for years, and wanted to see him, even if he could see his descendants. Mr. Fujino could not regret it. Then, a Japanese reporter asked Mr. Fujino to write a short article, “Remember Zhou Shuren,” and published it in a Japanese newspaper.

In Mr. Fujino’s memories, Zhou Shuren 32 years ago was like this:

“Zhou Jun is not tall and has a round face. He looks very smart. Remember that Zhou Jun was not very healthy at the time, and his face was not healthy.

Regarding the careful revision of Zhou Jun’s class notes, Mr. Fujino’s memory is like this: “Zhou Jun worked hard and took notes very seriously during the class. But I think he is not good at listening to and speaking Japanese, so he must study very Difficult. So I stayed after the lecture, read Zhou Jun’s notes, and changed what Zhou Jun missed or misremembered. ”

As for why Zhou Jun was so specially taken care of, Fujino explained: “Although the Sino-Japanese War of Sino-Japanese War has been over for many years, there are still many Japanese people who call the Chinese ‘a braided monk and say bad things about the Chinese. At Sendai Doctor There are also such a group of people who treat Zhou Jun with white eyes and treat him as a dissident. When I was a boy, I studied Chinese with Mr. Nosaka who graduated from the Fukui Clan School. I respect the Chinese sages, and I also think that we must cherish those from this country People. This is probably why I made Zhou Jun feel particularly kind and grateful. ”

However, in 1935, he read Lu Xun’s “Mr. Fujino”, but did not contact Lu Xun or let outsiders know. This is why?

He said, “Zhou Jun referred to me as a teacher in his novels or to his friends. It would be great if I could read his works earlier. I heard that Zhou Jun wanted to know me until his death. The news, if I could contact Zhou Jun earlier, how happy Zhou Jun would be. But now nothing will help. It is a pity. I live in a remote rural area after retirement and do n’t know much about the outside world, especially A layman who doesn’t know anything about literature. ”

Why mention yourself “don’t understand literature”? He felt that it was inappropriate for him to meet Lu Xun as an “anatomist teacher” and be a teacher of Wenhao.

When Mr. Fujino said “remote”, he actually thought of “poverty”; when he said “don’t understand literature”, he actually thought of “no status”. He is a famous writer in both countries, and he is grateful to him. And this gentleman, he is so downcast now.

After the two left in 1907, Zhou Shuren was disappointed with his condition and refused to contact Fujino; later, Fujino was disappointed with his condition and refused to contact Zhou Jun. Under the inferiority of the hatchbacks, the 30-year transnational teacher-student friendship ended with only two words behind the photo: Farewell.

This “Remember Zhou Shuren” was published in March 1937. In July of that year, the Lugouqiao Incident broke out, and the Japanese invaders completely invaded China.

At that time, the Japanese army bought a large number of medicines, and the price of medicines in Japan soared. Mr. Fujino’s two clinics store a lot of medicines, and some drug dealers come to buy them at high prices, saying that this is needed by the front line of the army and is of great significance. Although Fujino was short of money, he didn’t sell it at all, only to say that the local villagers still needed it.

After the drug dealer left, Fujino called his two sons and said to them, “Remember, China is teaching culture to Mr. Japan.”

In January 1945, Fujino’s eldest son Hiroshi Fujino died of illness in Hiroshima. An elderly bereavement, Mr. Fujino, 71, was extremely sad and was at a loss. But because of life, he soon returned to work in the clinic. One day a few months later, Mr. Fujino felt tired at work and said that he wanted to go back for a rest, but fainted on the road and was carried back after being found. After staying up all night, he died the next morning. Four days later, Japan announced its surrender.
