02.07 East Asia - Medieval Japan: Assessment
Transcript of 02.07 East Asia - Medieval Japan: Assessment
It is beautiful here in Japan, and the intellect here is really blossoming. While I have been here, I have been reading beautiful works of art written by not only men, but women as well. Aristocratic Japanese women here are taught how to read and write in Japanese. However, they are not learning to read and write Chinese because only political leaders have that advantage. A book I have been very interested in Kagero nikki, translated it is The Gossamer Years. Much of Japanese writings is influenced by their religion which they have adopted from the Chinese, Buddhism.
My visit here has been quite splendid. I have enjoyed seeing the Japanese’s very different aspects, and culture. I have seen many Samurais here, who are Japanese warriors. They are highly skilled with the sword, archery, and have high technological advances with their weapons. The bravest of the samurais are rewarded by their warlord. Many of the samurais are very rich. I believe by what I have seen, they become rich because they use peasant labor, and agriculture. However, not all samurais are like this, some show the peasants the art of creating pottery, papermaking, and metalworking; these are important cottage industries in Japan.
