Transcript of 02.07 Medieval Europe and Japan: East Asia.

Japanese Postcards Eliseo Maldonado After some more time surveying the country I began to notice many things such as the different kinds of art that people have placed out. There was a large variety of it out here and the Emperor Kammu was a huge support of it. There is a place that is used for meditation called the Zen Gardens which looks absolutely amazing. There is also this 5 line poetry called Tanka where the 1st and 3rd lines has 5 syllables, and the 2nd, 4th and 5th lines has 7 syllables. These poems can turn out to be really nice. Then there are the Japanese stories and there is one in particular that I really enjoy called The Tale of Genji which explains how Japan is far advance for its time period. This is a really amazing country with a beautiful scenery, you should visit me one day!
-Eliseo Wish you were here! I have lived in Japan for some time now, and I have made a few observations about everything here. Japan gets most of their influence from the Chinese, from their ideographic writing style to their own religion of Buddhism. However, there are still Japanese people that continue to follow their native religion of Shinto. As a part of this religion you meditate to clear your mind which I found interesting. This practice is mainly used by Japanese warriors called samurais and various of their clans have fought each other for power and land. This is a little upsetting, but there is nothing I can do about it. Hope to talk again soon!
