This is a chronology in summary form of twenty-two of the key events in the cultural history of Japan. There follows a four page chronology of Japanese history with dates and key events from the last 5000 years. I think this resource is of use for a teacher's own research or to use as a student activity. At the end of the document there is a suggested activity where students can use the information to create a timeline of Japanese cultural history. I have my students follow the directions as listed at the end of the chronology.
