Starting around 710, Japan has founded a rich history, throughout which several periods, including the Nara, Heian, and Kamakura, established how business and government was done. However, the modern period started with Emperor Meiji. Meiji moved the center of Japanese government from Kyoto to Tokyo in the late 1800's. This sent Japan on a course of modernization, transforming it from a feudal society to an industrialized nation in the course of only a few decades. Influence of Western culture flooded into Japan at a rapid tempo, including Western dress, food, architecture, industry, and more. After WWII, a democratic constitution was adopted that, among other things, demanded that power resided with the people, denounced war, and guaranteed human rights as inviolable. In 1964, Tokyo hosted the Summer Olympic Games, broadcasting to the world that Japan was indeed a modern, industrialized nation.
