Transcript of Edo Japan: Worldview

Relationship of human with nature Art work Explaination: Explanation: Utagawa Hiroshige: Edo Japan: Cherry blossom sightseeing Sakura, which is cherry blossom are an important part of Japan. They are Japan's national flower, they were also a description for samurai, cherry blossom's blooming season is so short and samurai is expected to have short lives. Pedals of cherry blossom also represents drops of blood. The Great Wave off Kanagawa: Japan have many earthquakes and sometimes a tsunami. People in Japan do many different drills to avoid loss in any type of situation. They also developed new technology because of the environment they are in for centuries. This connects to how people grow from the nature. Explanation: Japan is a place that always have good quality rice, rice are the basic food for japanese people everyday, farmers collect rice for the country. They must be hard working because in Edo period, they don't have any machines to help harvest.Nature helps to keep the country's population stable by providing food. Poems : Hyakunin isshu: Hyakunin isshu are 100 poems that are compiled by Fujiwara no Teika; hyakunin isshu can translate to one hundred people, one poem( each). Hyakunin isshu are mostly expressing people's emotions and many were expressed with nature. I chose 5 poems that are related to nature. Hyakunin isshu: Tenchi Tenno:

Aki no ta no
Kariho no io no
Toma o arami

Waga koromode wa
Tsuyu ni nure tsutsu Emperor Tenchi:

Coarse the rush-mat roof
Sheltering the harvest-hut
Of the autumn rice-field;

And my sleeves are growing wet
With the moisture dripping through. Kakinomoto no Hitomaro:

Ashibiki no
Yamadori no o no
Shidari o no

Naganagashi yo o
Hitori ka mo nen Kakinomoto no Hitomaro:

Oh, the foot-drawn trail
Of the mountain-pheasant's tail
Drooped like down-curved branch!

Through this long, long-dragging night
Must I lie in bed alone? Yamabe no Akahito:

Tago no Ura ni
Uchi idete mireba
Shirotae no

Fuji no takane ni
Yuki wa furi tsutsu Yamabe no Akahito:

When I take the path
To Tago's coast, I see
Perfect whiteness laid

On Mount Fuji's lofty peak
By the drift of falling snow. Ono no Komachi:

Hana no iro wa
Utsuri ni keri na
Itazura ni

Waga mi yo ni furu
Nagame seshi ma ni Ono no Komachi:

Color of the flower
Has already faded away,
While in idle thoughts

My life passes vainly by,
As I watch the long rains fall. Koko Tenno:

Kimi ga tame
Haru no no ni idete
Wakana tsumu

Waga koromode ni
Yuki wa furi tsutsu Emperor Koko:

It is for your sake
That I walk the fields in spring,
Gathering green herbs,

While my garment's hanging sleeves
Are speckled with falling snow. There is also a card game that is created by hykunin isshu which is called karuta. kyogi karuta which is competitive karuta is mostly on memorizing, speed, correctness and listening. the game rule to take the card which is read and the first who has zero card is the winner. I will show yu a video which is competitive karuta. Bibliography: http://www.posterrevolution.com/poster.cfm/japan-edo-period-cherry-blossom-viewing-art-poster-print-24x36
