Medieval Japan achievements
Transcript of Medieval Japan achievements
In Japan at first there was a Japanese language, but they did t Know how to write it. When Prince Shotoku sent people over to China people came up with the idea that Japanese could still speak their own but would have to write it in Chinese. Later on this became Japan's official language. During those times this was really useful. Now people could sent messages in paper and now they could communicate with the Chinese.
The Japanese learned how to write literature from the Chinese. The Japanese have written poems since the 8th and 7th centenary their earliest type of poets was called TANKA. This was one of their poetry types brought from China. With this new form of literature the Japanese could now express what they think and see in a poem.
Starting from prince Shotoku, rulers adopted new ideas of government from China .China's government was both the same and not the same as Japan's. Emperors in China and Japan had very different powers.In China the emperors were the sole ruler, as in Japan the emperors were rulers of specific clans. This way emperors had more power and control over more than just small clans.
With Japan's major central government, they needed to have a capital city. In 710, the government built a Chinese capital on the site of modern day Nara. The city was a smaller version Chang' -an, China's capital. Many Buddhist temples were made and the country grew biger of population.
Japan's religion came from Korea and China which was Buddhism. Buddhism first began in India in the 500s. Then a 1,000 yeas later it came to China and Japan b the way of Korea. Originally Japan's religion was Shinto a polytheistic religion in which you believed in Kami or nature spirits such as lightning, thunder, and wind.
Japanese were influenced in sculpting by the Chinese and the Korean. Like Buddhism these ideas also all came and started in India. Over the years The Japanese the Japanese changed their style and modified it to their own.
