After a long period of civil war Tokugawa Ieyasu completed the unification of Japan and was appointed shogun by the emperor in 1603 Divided in numerous parts, the eras are as following: Ancient Japan (-300 to 538), Classical Japan (538-1185), Feudal Japan (1185-1868), the Tokugawa Period (1603-1868), the Empire of Japan (1868-1945) and finally Post War Japan (1945-present). [1] During this time period from 250 AD to 538 AD, the unification of the Yamato kingdom, known as Japan today, took place Edo Japan (a term describing the country's stable, economically healthy period between 1603 and 1868) saw a surge in urban cultural and artistic life, and art from the era responded with lovely depictions of townspeople and courtesans letting loose at festivals, enjoying the cherry bloom season, and generally indulging in lowercase-h hedonism.

The Nara period of the eighth century marked the first emergence of a strong central Japanese state, centered on an imperial court in the city of Heijō-kyō, or modern-day Nara The Kamakura period (1185-1333) marks the transition to the Japanese "medieval" era, a nearly 700-year period in which the emperor, the court, and the traditional central government were left intact but were largely relegated to ceremonial functions. [1] The Legendary Era: Prehistoric Times (14,000 BCE - 538 CE) Most of the Japanese events and historical figures appearing in this period are derived from two primary sources: the Kojiki and the Nihon Shoki. [2] From 1641 to 1845, Deshima served as the sole conduit of trade between Europe and Japan, and during the period of self-imposed Japanese seclusion (approximately 1639-1854) was Japan's only major link to the European world."

[1] In 1603, which is the beginning of the Edo period, the interaction between the Japanese and Europeans was extremely intense, and that, however, exposed Japan to Christianization waves, which lead Japan to enter a period of isolation in order to avoid such religious waves.

Includes the Formative Period (prehistory-A.D. 250); influence of Chinese civilization on Japan (300-794); Heian Period - emergence of uniquely Japanese cultural forms (794-1185); Kamakura Shogunate - establishment of military government (1185-1336); Ashikaga Shogunate - civil war and the reunification of Japan (1336-1573); Tokugawa Period (1600-1867); Meji Period (1868-1912); Taisho Period (1912-1925); Showa Period (1926-1989); and Heisei Period (1990 - present). [2] 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. [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] 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. [2] By the mid-17th century, Neo-Confucianism was Japan's dominant legal philosophy and contributed directly to the development of the kokugaku, a school of Japanese philology and philosophy that originated during the Tokugawa period. [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] 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] 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] As historian John Whitney Hall pointed out in his book, Japan: From Prehistory to Modern Times, the Meiji period definitely marked "Japan's transition to modernity" and "proved to be one of the pivotal events in Japanese history." (Hall; 266). [1]

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. [2] 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.

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] Japanese term referring to industrial and financial business conglomerates in the Empire of Japan, whose influence and size allowed control over significant parts of the Japanese economy from the Meiji period until the end of World War II. In the beginning of the Heisei period Japan's rapidly growing economy began to slow and by 1991, the "Japanese asset price bubble" had ended. [1] 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.

JORMON PERIOD (14,000 BCE-300 BCE) Jinmu becomes the first human emperor of the Japanese islands in 660 BCE. 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]

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. [1]

In spite of the war, Japan's relative economic prosperity, which had begun in the Kamakura period, continued well into the Muromachi period. [4] The Kamakura period ( 鎌倉時代, Kamakura jidai, 1185-1333) is a period of Japanese history that marks the governance by the Kamakura shogunate, officially established in 1192 in Kamakura by the first shōgun, Minamoto no Yoritomo.

[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. The genealogy of the Later Han is from the Nihon Kodaishi Daijiten ( Dictionary of Ancient Japanese History ) supplemented with information from the Chronicle of the Chinese Emperors by Ann Paludan. [1] Asuka Period (飛鳥時代): A period of Japanese history running from 538 to 710 AD. Characterized by the rise and centralization of the Yamato kingdom under the ancestors of the modern Japanese ancestors, as well as the arrival of Chinese culture and Buddhism. [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] The Edo Period is a span of Japanese history is characterized by a feudal system ruled over by the Tokugawa Shogunate, that lasted from 1603 to 1868 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 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] 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] The Edo period that lasted from 1603 AD to 1868 AD saw the rise of Japan's isolationistic policy. [1]

This means the pieces are primarily a reflection of the Edo period (1603 - 1868), an era that defined Shizuoka’s role in Japanese history. [1] Between 1603 and 1868 Japanese society was under the rule of the Tokugawa shogunate, a period known as the Edo period. [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. [1]

It was in the Kamakura period that a drastic change took place in the field of religion; Buddhism became for the first time the religion of the masses. [6] The Kamakura period ended in 1333 with the destruction of the shogunate and the short re-establishment of imperial rule under Emperor Go-Daigo by Ashikaga Takauji, Nitta Yoshisada, and Kusunoki Masashige. [5] The old court eventually fell to a new military government which brought about the Kamakura period (1192 - 1333). [6] The times that gave way to the Kamakura period were marked by political and military conflict, natural disasters, and social malaise attributed to the perceived arrival of the Latter Day of the Law.

Kenmu Restoration - The Kenmu Restoration is the name given to both the three-year period of Japanese history between the Kamakura period and the Muromachi period, and the political events that took place in it. [8] Kamakura period, in Japanese history, the period from 1192 to 1333 during which the basis of feudalism was firmly established. [9]

The Kamakura period began in 1185 when Minamoto no Yoritomo seized power from the emperors, Nara was abandoned after only 70 years in part due to the ascendancy of Dōkyō and the encroaching secular power of the Buddhist institutions there. [8] Yoshimitsu allowed the constables, who had had limited powers during the Kamakura period, to become strong regional rulers, in time, a balance of power evolved between the shogun and the daimyō, the three most prominent daimyō families rotated as deputies to the shogun at Kyoto. [8] These years are known as the Kamakura period, the period takes its name from the city where the Minamoto shoguns lived. [8]

The Kamakura Period, 1185 to 1333, is a period that marks the governance of this Kamakura shogunate while the transition to the Japanese "medieval" era, a nearly 700-year period when the emperor, the court, while the traditional central government were kept intact but had been largely relegated to ceremonial functions. [10] Kamakura Period (鎌倉時代): A period of Japanese history running from 1185 to 1336 AD. During this period Japan was ruled by the Hōjō family from the city of Kamakura (south of modern Tokyo). [11] The "Japanese center Ages", which also range from the Muromachi period and lasted before the Meiji Restoration, began with all the Kamakura period. [10] The Kenmu (or Kemmu) renovation could be the three 12 months amount of Japanese history between the Kamakura period plus the Muromachi period plus the governmental events that took place in it. [10] The Kamakura period finished in 1333 with all the destruction of the shogunate while the short reestablishment of imperial rule (the Kenmu renovation) under the Emperor Go-Daigo by Ashikaga Takauji, Nitta Yoshisada, and Kusunoki Masashige. [10] An unusual situation occurred in the Kamakura period (1199-1333) upon the death of the first shōgun, whereby the Hōjō clan's hereditary titles of shikken (1199-1256) and tokusō (1256-1333) monopolized the shogunate as dictatorial positions, collectively known as the Regent Rule ( 執権政治 ). [12] In the early Kamakura period, however, a circle of waka poets emerged around the retired emperor Go-Toba, and produced a new imperial anthology, the Shin kokin wakashu. [13]

The mastery over these weapons and techniques during this time began to be classified as the samurais of the Kamakura period came to power. [14] Kamakura period (1192 1336) Medieval era, it's named after the seaside town Kamakura where the first line of shoguns ruled. [14]
