Japan is a series of islands in the Pacific Ocean off of the northeast coast of Asia. It makes up 4 large islands--Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu. Natural disasters are common in Japan: Located on the "ring of fire," earthquakes occur frequently, there are many active volcanoes on the island, and Japan lies in the path of typhoons.

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.

The presentation covers the following:
