Esperanto is an artificial international language published by Polish ophthalmologist Zamenhof in 1887.
At that time, Poland was under Russian control, and Poles, Germans, Russians, etc. lived in a mixed manner, and there was constant conflict between ethnic groups. Growing up in such a reality, Zamenhof came to think that poor communication due to different languages might be the cause of those misfortunes. Esperanto was created as an easy-to-learn language by learning many languages.
Resonating with Esperanto's ideals for world peace, many people in Japan learned Esperanto, and Kenji Miyazawa was one of them.
