Transcript of 02.07 East Asia - Medieval Japan: Postcards

Zen Buddhism Example of Zen Buddhism. Greetings again... Hi guys! Since we've last spoken, I've learned a whole lot more about Japanese politics and their arts and literature. The Japanese political aspects follow a code of conduct. This code of conduct is called Bushido. Bushido means "Way of the Warrior-Knight". The Samurai's followed these rules and were very strict about them. This code follows seven main virtues. These virtues are rectitude, courage, benevolence, respect, honesty, honor, and loyalty. I've also learned more about their arts and literature. To say the least, the art here is BEAUTIFUL! A part of their art is making the Zen gardens landscape be very pleasing to the eye. These landscapes include elaborately combed sand, rocks, and trimmed trees and bushes. This landscaping allows the person's mind enter into a very peaceful state. Women here are very into literature. Japanese women are taught to read and write Japanese, but not allowed Chinese because that was reserved for political leaders. The women like to write poems and books. Waka & Tanka are 2 types of poetry that the Japanese developed. I've had a great time in Japan, and I loved getting to share my experience with you guys!

This makes Japan vulnerable for attack. Having all if these islands also makes it difficult to govern the country. Each island mainly just makes its own laws and rules pertaining to it's own land and people.
