Product Description
This is a bundle of 2, highly animated, power point presentations on Civilizations of East Asia - Japanese Class System & Influence of Neighbors. Both presentations together number 38 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Between the 12th and 19th centuries, feudal Japan had an elaborate four tier class system. Unlike European feudal society, in which the peasants were at the bottom, the Japanese feudal class structure placed merchants on the lowest rung.

In 1868, the time of the "Floating World" came to an end, as a number of radical shocks completely remade Japanese society. The emperor retook power in his own right, in the Meiji Restoration, and abolished the office of the shogun. The samurai class was dissolved, and a modern military force created in its stead.

When Commodore Matthew Perry's U.S. Naval fleet steamed into Tokyo Bay in 1853 and demanded that Japan open its borders to foreign trade, it sounded the death-knell of the shogunate and of the 4 tier system.

Japan's culture is quite old and can be traced back 10,000 years, however a unified civilization did not appear until around 500 CE. In 593, Prince Shotoku Tashi, encouraged contact with the mainland where Japan's citizens were exposed to Chinese literature, art, philosophy, and government. For the next 300 years, Japan experienced cultural diffusion while absorbing the cultural elements of its neighbors.

During the 7th century, Japan was partially ruled by the Empress Suiko, but the real power was held by the regent, Prince Shotoku Taishi. Taishi admired the efficiency of the Chinese system and was determined to emulate the better qualities of the Chinese culture. At Tashi’s initiative, during the next 300 years Japan, sent diplomats, students, officials, and monks to study Chinese politics and philosophy for the purpose of adopting much of the Chinese culture.
