Transcript of Japan: Isolated
When you're a country that is an island you're basically already isolated. Japan on the other hand went above and beyond to isolate themselves from any western countries.
They wanted to maintain cultural "purity" by keeping their society closed to the influence of the Western world.
Key People In Creating isolation
shogun Lemitsu forbade traveling out of japan and limited contact with the outside world except for trade with China and The Netherlands. The Shogun also chose isolation as a method to maintain power and control .
What Impact Did Isolation Have On Society?
Did not have access to many technologies from other societies.
Could not travel long distances easily.
Their worldview was small since they couldn't travel. So they only focused on their society. This made them not accepting of different cultures.
Since they isolated themselves they couldn't learn anything or take in knowledge from other countries and cultures about technology. This set them back.
How did isolation affect on science and technology advancements?
