-The Japanese created an 'Asia for Asians' and overthrew the British rule, making asians more significant than the whites.
Treatment of the Japanese
-Before the Japanese Occupation, when the British was still ruling, the British did not treat the teenagers of Singapore like the Japanese did during the Japanese Occupation. After the British declared defeated, the Japanese tied teenagers to trees during the military operation in the picture.

In What Ways Did The Japanese Occupation Changed The Lives Of People In Singapore?
Treatment of the Japanese
-Before the Japanese Occupation, teenagers of Singapore did not see the British as rulers. During the Japanese Occupation, the British were sent behind bars and became Prisoners-Of-War and the teenagers wanted them to rule Singapore again.
Before the Japanese Occupation people got enough food and money but during Japanese Occupation, when the Japanese started ruling, food became more demanding than money as food shortage occurred.

They also wanted people to learn ,and be able to speak Japanese. So, they printed Japanese lessons in local Newspapers.
