During the Heian Period (9th - 11th century) Japan matured into its own literature, music and art forms. Shiki-e is a Japanese style of painting that depicts the four seasons. This style arose during the Morimachi Period and is still popular today. Traditional Japanese art tends to share so many similarities that it is typically effortless to discern a traditional piece. Painting with naturally derived minerals and inks is heavily favored. Silks and fine, luxurious fabrics are popular canvases. Japanese art can often be characterized by its elegant simplicity. Most forms of distinctly Japanese painting are part of the everlasting "Yamao-e" style which portrays Japanese culture as one of breathtaking landscapes, elegance, and pleasure. http://www.facts-about-japan.com/brief-history.html There is a significantly large expanse of water between the island of Japan and the mainland. Naturally, this has had a massive impact on their cultural development as a country. Today, despite Japan's lack of physical connection, and its trouble during WWII, it has become a cultural oasis. http://www.scholten-japanese-art.com/nihonga_02.htm During the Meiji Period (early 20th century)Japan realized that it's Xenophobia had alienated most of the world, consequently lagging behind in development. As a counteraction, the Nihonga style emerged. It attempted to combine modern, western artistic styles with those of traditional Japan. by Bryna Butt http://www.talktalk.co.uk/reference/encyclopaedia/hutchinson/m0008878.html http://www.buzzle.com/articles/japanese-traditional-art.html http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&sa=N&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1159&bih=576&tbm=isch&tbnid=7NnJmPHL0NwFVM:&imgrefurl=http://www.freethought-forum.com/forum/showthread.php%3Ft%3D25778%26page%3D2&docid=A9l7tkDI4uHbRM&imgurl=http://calligraphy-expo.com/EditorFiles/image/JapanesePainting/3053bae1-c318-4015-b763-383490bda8db.jpg&w=499&h=576&ei=mbhfUJP4A-2J0QGIzIHADA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=610&vpy=177&dur=71&hovh=241&hovw=209&tx=107&ty=170&sig=101078706460521511131&page=1&tbnh=165&tbnw=139&start=0&ndsp=11&ved=1t:429,r:3,s:0,i:148 http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&sa=N&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1159&bih=600&tbm=isch&tbnid=VQzNwXQcJMDJEM:&imgrefurl=http://www.countryliving.com/antiques/appraisals/japanese-satsuma-vase-0105&docid=5gpZh3IH-Ns0UM&imgurl=http://www.countryliving.com/cm/countryliving/images/CLX0105Wit003-de.jpg&w=360&h=460&ei=Q75hUOLkKeSs0AHvs4HIAQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=746&vpy=129&dur=834&hovh=254&hovw=199&tx=118&ty=136&sig=101078706460521511131&page=1&tbnh=117&tbnw=83&start=0&ndsp=22&ved=1t:429,r:5,s:0,i:128 http://www.google.com/imgres?hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=8QX&sa=X&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&biw=1159&bih=600&tbm=isch&prmd=imvnsb&tbnid=VdOyNZ9SFGZt0M:&imgrefurl=http://www.photographyblog.com/forums/lofiversion/index.php/t1029.html&docid=tOuQGQn06ODE5M&imgurl=http://www.photographyblog.com/images/photo_of_the_week/05111205/Japanese%252520Architecture.jpg&w=600&h=423&ei=JsBhUMbhCejk0QHLyoDIBQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&dur=1880&sig=101078706460521511131&page=3&tbnh=124&tbnw=176&start=43&ndsp=24&ved=1t:429,r:14,s:43,i:326&tx=127&ty=112&vpx=421&vpy=253&hovh=188&hovw=267 http://history-porcelain-japan.com/ http://academic.csuohio.edu/makelaa/lectures/architecture/index.html Japan, just like other developed nations, is now immensely modernized. It's cities have sky scrapers and traffic lights, just like we do. It takes a little more work to find distinguishably Japanese buildings. For the most part, traditional architecture can only be found in older temples, shrines, houses, and places build specifically to look Japanese. Just like the rest of Japanese art, architecture took a western turn when Japan tried to realign itself with western culture. during this transition, western architectural influences took their tole of Japanese traditional architecture. . Most Japanese ceramics were made by monks and priests. They tended to keep them simple and useful. Most of these ceramics were crafted for these monks' Tea ceremonies. In the early 17th century monks had discovered how to fire "soft paste porcelain." The Japanese monks perfected this technique within a matter of years. Pottery:
mino
raku
bizen
seto Porcelain:
imari-arita
kutani
kyo During the Tokugawa Era or Edo Period, Taoism wormed its way into Japanese art and culture, represented in depictions of nature spirits. http://www.onmarkproductions.com/html/japanese-taoism.html
