Ancient Japan
Ancient Japan to 1185 It is not known when humans first settled on the Japanese archipelago. It was long believed that there was no Paleolithic occupation in Japan, but since World War II thousands of sites have been unearthed throughout the country, yielding a wide variety of Paleolithic tools. These include both core tools, made by chipping away the surface of a stone, and flake tools, made by working with a stone flake broken off from a larger piece of stone. There is little doubt that the people who used these implements moved to Japan from the Asian continent. At one stage, land connections via what are now the Korea and Tsushima straits made immigration from the Korean peninsula possible, while another connection, via what are now the Soya and Tsugaru straits, allowed people to come in from northeastern Asia. The Paleolithic Period in Japan is variously dated from 30,000 to 10,000 years ago, although the argument has been made for a Lower Paleolithic culture prior to 35,000 BC. Nothing certain is known of the culture of the period, though it seems likely that people lived by hunting and gathering, used fire, and made their homes either in pit-type dwellings or in caves. No bone or horn artifacts of the kind associated with this period in other areas of the world have yet been found in Japan. Since there was no knowledge whatsoever of pottery, the period is referred to as the Pre-Ceramic era. Climatic changes help to account for the existence of a Mesolithic stage in early Japanese culture, a time when much of the abundant fauna of earlier times became depleted by the expanding human population of the archipelago. The introduction of the bow and arrow is regarded as a local response to a decrease in game available for food.

BUSHIDO ( SAMURAI SPIRIT = Chivalry ) is a flower no less indigenous to soil of Japan than its emblem, the cherry blossom. The conditions of society which brought it forth and nourished it have long disappeared; but as those far-off stars which once were and are not, still continue to shed their rays upon us, so the light of BUSHIDO which was a child of feudalism,still illuminates our moral path, surviving its mother institution.
Kabuki originated in the early Edo period, when a woman called Okuni of Izumo performed a Buddhist dance in an unusual costume in Kyoto. the dance was later deemed morally unacceptable,and woman were prohibited from performing it. Instead, only adult men were allowed to perform.This custom has been maintained in present-day kabuki.
No originated in the art of dengaku(ritual field music and dance) and sarugaku (mimic plays) in the kamakura era; which developed as music-plays incorporating beautiful music and dance in the Muromachi era. Kyougen, on the other hand, is comedic drama. UKIYO-E
A genre painting popular among the common people during the Edo period (1600-1868). Ukiyu means "pleasure-seeking," or "sensual" in Japanese, and this world was actually the subject of paintings called Ukiyo-e.Most Ukiyo-e were prints that could be mass-produced. Drawings were rare.

As its name implies, the Institute for Japanese Culture and Classics was commissioned as a research center attached to Kokugakuin University for the purpose of conducting studies about Japanese culture. Our research is not merely about traditional Japanese culture; we also conduct comparative studies from a global perspective and analyses of modern culture. While our research is mainly in Religious Studies, Shinto Studies, and Folklore, it also covers a wide spectrum of areas pertaining to Japanese culture, including among others the history of jurisprudence, literature, and archeology. In addition to our regular staff , there are adjunct and associate researchers who cooperate in the planning and conduct of our various research projects. At the Institute for Japanese Culture and Classics we are making every effort to disseminate the fruits of our research in Japan and abroad. Besides our various publications , we are also posting our results on the Internet and are attempting to make information readily available to the public.

1. Brain death and Japanese society The word "bioethics" appeared in the United States in the early 1970s, and spread to other advanced countries in the 1980s. Japan was no exception. Through powerful patients' rights movements and fierce debates on brain death in the 1980s, Japanese society has realized the importance of bioethical ideas and bioethical ways of thinking. Today, "informed consent" is a key concept among human rights activists in the field of medical care. At the same time, however, Japanese society seems to have showed reluctance to, for example, organ transplants from brain-dead donors.
In this paper, I will illustrate how the Japanese have responded to newly imported bioethical ideas by examining their discourse on brain death and patients' rights. Through the analysis the reader will encounter a typical Asian response to modern "Western" medicine and culture.

135. Cultural Background
culture. The culture of a country such as japan is a topic spanning much depth, breadth, and literally thousands of years of history.
Matsuyama's Haiku and its Place in Japanese Culture
The culture of a country such as Japan is a topic spanning much depth, breadth, and literally thousands of years of history. Nevertheless, it is clear to see how Haiku was born of such a culture and also how the flow of Japan's cultural development would eventually arrive at an art form like Haiku. Also, it is no mystery why, of all places in Japan, Haiku would come of age in Matsuyama. A constant metaphor used in the study of Japanese history and culture is a giant pendulum of Japanese consciousness in the archipelago. It swings between ages of fascination and emulation of foreign societies and isolationism where that which had been studied incubates and is Japanified or where there is a return to an original Japanese essence of some kind, always readily reverted to after government led experimentation with foreign institutions. Insofaras a country's culture tends to originate in the country's ancient nobility, much of Japan's literary cultural finds its roots in the imperial court, whose system was originally brought over from China in the 7th century. Graceful courtesans and erudite nobles would pass away the evenings in boats floating through Imperial gardens extemporizing in poetic verse under the full moon. Then such forrets would be recorded, later to become some of the world's oldest novels (The Tale of Genji, Lady Nijo, The Gossamer Years...). The poetic forms used at the time were Waka and Tanka, the forms that were later reformed to Haiku in the 19th century.

137. Heian Japan
The great flowering of classical culture.
The Heian period (794-1192) was one of those amazing periods in Japanese history, equaled only by the later Tokugawa period in pre-modern Japan, in which an unprecedented peace and security passed over the land under the powerful rule of the Heian dynasty. Japanese culture during the Heian flourished as it never had before; such a cultural efflorescence would only occur again during the long Tokugawa peace. For this reason, Heian Japan along with Nara Japan (710-794) is called "Classical" Japan.
Japan Atlas Nara and Heian Japan
Japan Glossary Aware
, "courtliness," makoto , or "simplicity," and aware , or "sensitivity, sorrow." This culture was forged largely among the women's communities at court and reached their pinnacle in the book considered to be the greatest classic of Japanese literature, the Genji monogatari (Tales of the Genji) by Lady Murasaki Shikibu.
Japan Glossary Tenno
Uji bonds were still felt, and outlying areas still exercised a degree of autonomy. The result for court government was very simple: most of court government concerned the court alone. There were six thousand employees of the imperial government; four thousand administered the imperial house. So the Heian court was not overly involved in the day to day governing of outlying provinces, which numbered sixty-six.
In both the Nara period and the Heian period, regional chiefs were replaced by court-appointed governors of the provinces. This was a demotion for the traditional aristocracy; it did not mean, however, that Heian government exercised a great deal of control over these regional governors who ran their provinces more or less autonomously.

138. Edo Japan, A Virtual Tour
Take a tour through Tokyo during the period of the Tokugawa shoguns, and learn about the history of japan's greatest city. Illustrated by ukiyoe images, the text discusses the traditions that underlie japanese culture.
Welcome to Edo Edo is the ancient name for Tokyo. During the reign of the Tokugawa Shoguns, Japan's emperor reigned in secluded majesty at the imperial capital in Kyoto; however, the true center of power, government, the economy and social life was Edo , where the Shogun lived and ruled the country. For most people in Japan, Edo is more than just a historical city. It also has a symbolic image and meaning. It represents nearly everything that they consider a part of their "traditional" culture. For the Japanese, Edo has a romantic image that one could compare to the Italian's image of Renaissance Venice, the British image of Victorian London and the American image of the Wild West, all rolled into one. This website is designed to take you exploring in Edo . Hopefully it will offer not only some enjoyment, but also some insights into the source of "traditional Japan". Although modern Tokyo may look very "Western" on the surface, in its heart the spirit of Edo still lives on! This site is continuously growing and expanding, with the addition of new pages on various parts of the city. Bookmark this page and visit often. New towns, new sounds and graphics, and new information on historical Edo will be added on a regular basis. Special thanks to The Japan-America Society for co-hosting this website.
