The Azuchi-Momoyama period runs from approximately 1569 to 1603 After a generation-long period of coups and counter-coups and civil war, the Minamoto family came out on top. Like the Soga and Fujiwara before them, they left the Emperor in nominal control but exercised all real power in his name.

KEY TOPICS Some of Japan's literary monuments were written during the Nara period, including the Kojiki and Nihon Shoki, the first national histories, compiled in 712 and 720 respectively; the Man'yōshū, an anthology of poems; and the Kaifūsō, an anthology written in Chinese by Japanese emperors and princes. [1] Some of Japan's literary monuments were written during the Nara period, including the Kojiki and Nihongi, the first national histories compiled in 712 and 720, respectively; the Man'yosh (Collection of Ten Thousand Leaves), an anthology of poems; and the Kaifuso (Fond Recollections of Poetry), an anthology written in Chinese by Japanese emperors and princes. [1]

This and other events led to the Meiji Restoration, a period of frantic modernization and industrialization accompanied by the re-ascendence of the Emperor, making the Imperial Japanese Navy the third largest navy in the world by 1920, and arguably the most modern at the brink of World War II. The results of this period continue to be influential in Modern Japan's view of the tenno seika (Emperor System). [1] Probably the most important issue approached by Japanese architects during the period of World War I and its aftermath was how Japan's tra- ditional tastes in building could be combined with the modern architec- tural values of the West. [1]

The cause for the end of this period is controversial but is recounted as the forcing of Japan's opening to the world by Commodore Matthew Perry of the U.S. Navy, whose armada (known by Japanese as " the black ships ") fired weapons from Edo Bay. [1] In spite of Japan's economic difficulties, this period also saw Japanese popular culture, including video games, anime, and manga, become worldwide phenomena, especially among young people. [1] Regrettably, the great bulk of such pictures by Japanese artists, as well as those brought from Europe, was destroyed in the Christian persecutions of the seven- teenth century, and we have only a relatively few works remaining from which to judge Japan's "Christian art" during and after the period of unification. [1] During the period, some of Japan's most representative art forms developed, including ink wash painting, ikebana flower arrangement, the tea ceremony, Japanese gardening, bonsai, and Noh theater. [1]

The very end of the period saw the introduction of Japan's first coinage, the Wado kaiho, in 708 CE. The Yamato period ( 大和時代, Yamato-jidai ) is the period of Japanese history when the Japanese Imperial court ruled from modern-day Nara Prefecture, then known as Yamato Province. [1] The effects of this period are still influential in Modern Japan's view of the tenno seika (Emperor system) The ShÅwa period (Japanese: æ­å'æä£, ShÅwa-jidai, period of enlightened peace) was the time in Japanese history when Emperor Hirohito reigned over the country, from December 25, 1926 to January 7, 1989.

KOFUN PERIOD (250 CE- 538 CE) According to Chinese records, during this period the so-called Five Kings of Wa send tribute to China and receive titles for doing so from 421 CE to 502 CE. Despite these exchanges, the lack of regular missions between the two states from the 10th century CE meant that the Heian Period overall saw a diminishing in the influence of Chinese culture, which meant that Japanese culture began to find its own unique path of development.

While the Asuka period started with conflict of religious belief between clans, later in the period, the imported religions became syncretized with Japan's native folk beliefs. [1] Japanese archaeologists emphasise instead the fact that, in the first half of the Kofun period, other regional chieftainships, such as Kibi were in close contention for dominance or importance Japan's stated war aim was to establish the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere, a vast pan-Asian union under Japanese domination.Henshall, 123-124. [1] Buke first appeared during the Heian Period, and came to dominate Japan from 1185 to 1868 AD. The Japanese military played a key role in Japan's expansion abroad. [1]

Buke first appeared during the Heian Period, and came to dominate Japan from 1185 to 1868 AD. The majority of chōnin were merchants, but some were craftsmen, daimyo - a feudal lord during the later Muromachi period, Sengoku period, Azuchi-Momoyama period and Edo period. [1]

Azuchi-Momoyama period ( 安土桃山時代, Azuchi-Momoyama-jidai ), also known as the Momoyama period ( 桃山時代, Momoyama-jidai ), is the time from approximately 1573 to 1606 in history of Japan. [2] The Azuchi-Momoyama period ( 安土桃山時代, Azuchi-Momoyama jidai ? ) or the Shokuho period ( 織豊時代, Shokoho jidai ? ) at the end of the Warring States Period (also known as Sengoku period ( 戦国時代, Sengoku jidai ? ) ) in Japan, when the political unification that preceded the establishment of the Tokugawa shogunate took place. [1] The Azuchi-Momoyama period ( 安土桃山時代, Azuchi-Momoyama jidai ? ) came at the end of the Warring States Period in Japan, when the political unification that preceded the establishment of the Tokugawa shogunate took place The Tokugawa shogunate ruled Japan from the early 17th century until 1868, a period when Japan was well behind the industrialization of other nations. [1] The Azuchi-Momoyama period (安土桃山時代, azuchi momoyama jidai ), also called Momoyama Period, came at the end of the Sengoku period (Warring States period) in Japan, when the political unification that preceded the establishment of the Tokugawa shogunate took place. [1]

In the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1573-1603), a succession of military leaders, such as Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu, attempted to bring peace and political stability to Japan after an era of almost 100 years of warfare. [1] Main article: Azuchi-Momoyama period After nearly a century and a half of political instability and warfare, Japan was on the verge of unification by Oda Nobunaga, who had emerged from obscurity in the province of Owari (present-day Aichi Prefecture ) to dominate central Japan, when in 1582 Nobunaga himself fell as victim to the treachery of one of his own generals, Akechi Mitsuhide. [1]

The Azuchi-Momoyama period began in 1568 when Nobunaga seized Kyoto and thus effectively brought an end to the Ashikaga shogunate, he was well on his way towards his goal of reuniting all Japan in 1582 when one of his own officers, Akechi Mitsuhide, killed him during an abrupt attack on his encampment Archaeologists now know that the oldest fabric product found in Japan is a rope made of hemp, dating back 21,000 years to the beginning of the Jōmon Period. [1] These years come after the Azuchi-Momoyama period and before the Meiji Restoration and the development of modern Japan. [1] The stability brought about by the works of Nobunaga, Hideyoshi and Ieyasu during the Azuchi-Momoyama Period allowed the artisans and merchants to return to the capital and port cities, and trade flourished once again in Japan.

KOFUN PERIOD (250 CE- 538 CE) According to Chinese records, during this period the so-called Five Kings of Wa send tribute to China and receive titles for doing so from 421 CE to 502 CE. The adoption of Japan's first military code of law--the Goseibai Shikimoku --in 1232 reflected the profound transition from court to militarized society. [1] KOFUN PERIOD (250 CE- 538 CE) According to Chinese records, during this period the so-called Five Kings of Wa send tribute to China and receive titles for doing so from 421 CE to 502 CE. After the turbulence of the Sengoku period and the establishment of the Tokugawa shogunate in 1603, old temples like Hieizan, Tō-ji and Tōdai-ji lost their power and the schools of Buddhism were surpassed in influence by the Nichiren-shū and Jōdo-shū.

[1] The Sengoku period ( 戦国時代, Sengoku jidai, "Age of Warring States"; c. 1467 - c. 1603) is a period in Japanese history marked by social upheaval, political intrigue and near-constant military conflict. [1] The Edo period ), also called Tokugawa period, is a division of Japanese history running from 1603 to 1868. [1] Today, Senhime figures prominently in jidaigeki ("period dramas", a genre of film, television, and theatre most often set during the Edo period of Japanese history, from 1603 to 1868) and taiga dorama ("Big River Drama", the name NHK gives to the annual, year-long historical fiction television series it broadcasts). [1]

The Edo period that lasted from 1603 AD to 1868 AD saw the rise of Japan's isolationistic policy. [1] The Asuka period began in 538 with the introduction of the Buddhist religion from the Korean kingdom of Baekje.Since then, Buddhism has coexisted with Japan's native Shinto religion, in what is today known as Shinbutsu-shg.The period draws its name from the de facto imperial capital, Asuka, in the Kinai region. [1] The Asuka period is the period in Japanese history occurring from 538 CE - 710 CE The arrival of Buddhism marked a change in Japanese society and it affected the Yamato government as well. [1] A brief period of vigorous international exchange with the West took place during the early Edo period (1603 to 1867), until Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu grew wary of the growing influence of Christianity on Japanese society, and stamped his policy of national seclusion on the nation.

The Azuchi-Momoyama period is the final phase of the Sengoku period in Japan.These years of political unification led to the establishment of the Tokugawa shogunate.It spans the years from. [1] The Azuchi-Momoyama period began out of the late Muromachi period, known also as the Sengoku period, in 1568 when the armies of Nobunaga entered Kyto and reestablished the Ashikaga Shogunate under the 15th and last shogun Ashikaga Yoshiaki. [1] His consolidation of power began what was known as the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1573-1603). [1]

In contrast to the restraint of the preceding Muromachi, or Ashikaga, period (1338-1573), the Azuchi-Momoyama period was an age of magnificence and ostentation, when the building of castles and mansions replaced the building of temples, and the rise of urban centers and a prosperous merchant class created a demand for art and culture. [1] The majority of chōnin were merchants, but some were craftsmen, daimyo - a feudal lord during the later Muromachi period, Sengoku period, Azuchi-Momoyama period and Edo period. [1] The Late Hōjō clan (後北条氏 Go-Hōjō-shi) were powerful regional lords at the end of the Muromachi Period (1333-1568) and in the Azuchi-Momoyama Period (1568-1600) and must not be confused with the warrior family by the same name who were hereditary regents (執権 shikken) of the Kamakura shogunate in the Kamakura Period (1185-1333). [1] During the Azuchi-Momoyama period, Christian converts rapidly increased in number, perhaps because people were tired of a long period of warring states (Sengoku Jidai). [1]

The Azuchi-Momoyama period began in 1568 when Nobunaga seized Kyoto and thus effectively brought an end to the Ashikaga shogunate. [3] The developments in silk-making and embroidery from the Azuchi-Momoyama Period quickly came to bear when merchants in the early Edo Period commissioned grand kosode with a very different appearance from the kosode worn by Muromachi Period samurai ladies. [4] The Asuka period began in 538 AD with the introduction of the Buddhist religion from the Korean kingdom of Baekje, since then, Buddhism has coexisted with Japan's native Shinto religion, in what is today known as Shinbutsu-shūgō.
