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. [2] Buke first appeared during the Heian Period, and came to dominate Japan from 1185 to 1868 AD. However after the war Japan's growing economic and political power brought her into conflict with the USA. Because the Yayoi came from the Asian mainland, it is estimated that Japanese culture originates from China and Korea.

The Ryukyuan languages and Japanese most likely diverged during this period, the Kofun period is an era in the history of Japan from around 250 to 538. [2] Kofun (Tumulus) Period (古墳時代): A period of Japanese history running from 300 AD to 538 AD. The name comes from the Kofun, large earthen burial mounds built during this period. [2] The actual date the Court was established at Yamato is unknown, but the period usually assigned to the Kofun is 250 - 710 A.D. However as Admiral Yamamoto warned, Japan's six month window of military advantage after Pearl Harbor ended with the Japanese Navy's offensive ability being crippled at the hands of the American Navy in the Battle of Midway, which turned the tide against them. [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). [2] 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.

[2] Late Heian or Fujiwara period : high value placed on writing original verses, and distinctly Japanese & elegant poetry written by court men and women; Chinese writing simplified and made compatible with spoken Japanese. [2] The development of the kana written syllabaries was part of a general trend of declining Chinese influence during the Heian period, the Japanese missions to Tang dynasty of China, which began in the year 630, ended during the ninth century and thereafter more typically Japanese forms of art and poetry developed.

[2] JORMON PERIOD (14,000 BCE-300 BCE) Jinmu becomes the first human emperor of the Japanese islands in 660 BCE. Japanese relations with China had been terminated in the mid-ninth century after the deterioration of late Tang Dynasty China and the turning inward of the Heian court. [2]

The next two periods in Japanese history were the Nara and Heian periods, which combined lasted from 710 AD through 1185 AD. To kick off the Nara Era, in 710 AD the Yamato kingdom’s first capital was built in the city of Nara, for which the time period was named for. [4] His last choice for the site was the village of Uda, the new city, Heian-kyō, a scaled replica of the then Tang capital Changan, became the seat of Japans imperial court in 794, beginning the Heian period of Japanese history The Heian period is also considered the peak of the Japanese imperial court and is noted for its art, especially poetry and literature. [2]

The Heian period was preceded by the Nara period and began in A.D. 794 after the movement of the capital of Japan to Heian-kyō (present-day Kyōto ), by the 50th emperor, Emperor Kanmu. [5] The iconography of the Heian period is widely known in Japan, and depicted in various media, from traditional festivals to anime. [5] Buddhism began to spread throughout Japan during the Heian period, primarily through two major esoteric sects, Tendai and Shingon. [5] The early Heian period (784-967) continued Nara culture; the Heian capital was patterned on the Chinese Tang capital at Chang'an, as was Nara, but on a larger scale than Nara. [5]

Buke first appeared during the Heian Period, and came to dominate Japan from 1185 to 1868 AD. During the Kofun period, (250 to 538 AD) contacts with Chinese culture began to increase. [2] Buke first appeared during the Heian Period, and came to dominate Japan from 1185 to 1868 AD. The lyrics of the modern Japanese national anthem, "Kimi Ga Yo," were written in the Heian period, as was The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu, one of the first novels in Japanese. [2] Buke first appeared during the Heian Period, and came to dominate Japan from 1185 to 1868 AD. The Heian period is also considered the peak of the Japanese imperial court and is noted for its art, especially poetry and literature. [2]

The Heian period is preceded by the Nara period and began in 794 after the movement of the capital of Japanese civilisation to Heianky (present-day Kyoto ) by the 50th emperor Kammu. [2] Influenced by Chinese painting styles introduced in the Nara period, it developed a distinctly Japanese style by the Heian period. [2] Kanshi from the early Heian period exists in the Kaifūsō anthology, Waka are composed in Japanese, and are contrasted with poetry composed by Japanese poets in Classical Chinese, which are known as kanshi. [2] These earliest Japanese writings do not refer to a unified Shinto religion, practitioners express their diverse beliefs through a standard language and practice, adopting a similar style in dress and ritual, dating from around the time of the Nara and Heian periods. [2] There are two forms of music recognized to be the oldest forms of traditional Japanese music and they are shōmyō, or Buddhist chanting, and gagaku or orchestral court music, both of which date to the Nara and Heian periods. [2] The lyrics of the modern Japanese national anthem, "Kimi Ga Yo," were written in the Heian period, as was The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu, one of the first novels in Japanese.

[2] The curved Japanese sword was perfected at the end of the Heian period (974-1185) in the mid 10 th century Another popular Japanese painting style is the Yamato-e, a painting style that was inspired by China, but fully developed and distinguished from it by the late Heian period. [2] Although horizontal handscrolls had long been used for pictorial pur- poses in China, it was the Japanese who in the late Heian period came to employ them in the creation of a major art form. [2] It was only during the Heian period that this art became a crucial part of Japanese ceremonies The Fujiwara dominated the Japanese politics of Heian period through the monopoly of regent positions, sesshō, the familys primary strategy for central influence was through the marrying of Fujiwara daughters to emperors. [2] During the Heian period Buddhism became even more infused with Japanese elements: It met and assimilated local beliefs concerning ghosts and spirits (the so-called onrei and mitama ), developing traits close to magic and sorcery which allowed it to penetrate a wide spectrum of social classes It was only during the Heian period that this art became a crucial part of Japanese ceremonies. [2] The years include the Heian period 794 to 1191 in Japanese Buddhism. [2] During the Nara period (710-784) and the Heian period (784-1185), Japanese culture flourished with the development of art, literature, theatre, and philosophy. [4] During the Heian period, the imperial court was a vibrant center of high art and culture, its literary accomplishments include the poetry collection Kokinshū and the Tosa Diary, both associated with the poet Ki no Tsurayuki, as well as Sei Shōnagon's collection of miscellany The Pillow Book, and Murasaki Shikibu's Tale of Genji, considered the supreme masterpiece of Japanese literature.

[2] The best-known period regarding Japanese diet is the Heian Period (794-1185 CE) when literature flourished and references to eating practices can be found amongst the court intrigues and romantic interludes. [2] It was only during the Heian period that this art became a crucial part of Japanese ceremonies The novel depicts life among the Japanese aristocracy in the Heian period (794 to 1185) through the eyes of the story's hero Hikaru Genji, who experiences a series of romantic entanglements and political power struggles that were typical among the.

[2] 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. [2] The Meiji period (1868-1912) brought about the rapid modernization of Japanese economic, political, and social institutions, which resulted in Japan's attaining the status of the leading country in Asia and a world economic and political power.
