First Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895)

First Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895)

The First Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895) is rarely covered, yet it is crucial for understanding the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905) and the Second Sino-Japanese War. In this video we look at the underlying causes, like the weakness of China, the Rise of Japan, the Westernization of Japan, the importance of Korea and the Russian Trans-Siberian Railroad. Additionally, a short overview on the course of the war on the sea and on land will be covered. A short discussion on both the Chinese and Japanese shortcomings will be followed by the terms of the treaty, the following Western Invervention and finally the long-term implications of the Japanese Victory and the weakening of China.

Japan - History of a Secret Empire - The Samurai, the Shogun, & the Barbarians

Japan - History of a Secret Empire - The Samurai, the Shogun, & the Barbarians

Japan - History of a Secret Empire: The Samurai, the Shogun, and the Barbarians. The Japanese have rites and ceremonies so different from those of all other nations. The things they do are beyond imagining, and it may be truly said that Japan is a world that is the reverse of Europe. To the first westerners in Japan, it was a mysterious world. It was the fabled isle of Zipangu that Marco Polo had only heard about. The land of riches that Christopher Columbus set out to find. In the first century AD, the first known written reference to Japan was recorded in the Chinese Book of Han. Between the third century and the eighth century, Japan's many kingdoms and tribes gradually came to be unified under a centralized government, nominally controlled by the Emperor. The imperial dynasty established at this time continues to reign over Japan to this day. In 794, a new imperial capital was established at Heian-kyō (modern Kyoto), marking the beginning of the Heian period, which lasted until 1185. The Heian period is considered a golden age of classical Japanese culture. Japanese religious life from this time and onwards was a mix of Buddhism, and native religious practices known as Shinto. Over the following centuries the power of the Emperor and the imperial court gradually declined and passed to the military clans and their armies of samurai warriors. The Minamoto clan under Minamoto no Yoritomo emerged victorious from the Genpei War of 1180–85. After seizing power, Yoritomo set up his capital in Kamakura and took the title of shogun. In 1274 and 1281, the Kamakura shogunate withstood two Mongol invasions, but in 1333 it was toppled by a rival claimant to the shogunate, ushering in the Muromachi period. During the Muromachi period regional warlords known as daimyō grew in power at the expense of the shogun. Eventually, Japan descended into a period of civil war. Over the course of the late sixteenth century, Japan was reunified under the leadership of the daimyō Oda Nobunaga and his successor Toyotomi Hideyoshi. After Hideyoshi's death in 1598, Tokugawa Ieyasu came to power and was appointed shogun by the Emperor. The Tokugawa shogunate, which governed from Edo (modern Tokyo), presided over a prosperous and peaceful era known as the Edo period (1600–1868). The Tokugawa shogunate imposed a strict class system on Japanese society and cut off almost all contact with the outside world. The American Perry Expedition in 1853–54 ended Japan's seclusion; this in turn contributed to the fall of the shogunate and the return of power to the Emperor in 1868. The new national leadership of the following Meiji period transformed their isolated, underdeveloped island country into an empire that closely followed Western models and became a world power.

It is a national holiday in Japan (天皇誕生日). 1) WORLD'S OLDEST MONARCHY The Japanese monarchy, The Imperial House of Japan, is the oldest, continuous hereditary monarchy in the world. Compared to other monarchies, you have the British Monarchy starting at 1066 and the the Danish Monarchy at 935. For the Japanese Monarchy, we’re going back to 660BC, which started with the legendary Japanese Emperor Jimmu. 2) DESCENDENT OF GODS Shinto is the largest religion in Japan, and the line of Japanese Emperors are said to be the direct descendants of several Shinto gods, the most notable being the Sun goddess, Amaterasu. The Emperor is the ceremonial head of state in Japan, but it makes sense that with his divine ancestry, he is also officially the head of the Shinto religion itself. 3) TERRITORY-INDEPENDENT PHENOMENON As odd as it may seem, the title of Emperor (or Tennō) has never really been about territorial designations. Contrast this with European monarchs who often wanted to conquer and control additional territory. In fact, the position of Emperor is a territory-independent phenomenon. In other words, the Emperor is the Emperor regardless if he has followers in the whole of Japan or in only one province. 4) EMPEROR'S CAPACITY From 1192 to 1867, the shoguns held the real power (Shoguns being the military commanders of the time). The Emperor still officially nominated the Shoguns to their positions, but this was largely ceremonial. Today, the Japanese Constitution vests executive power in the Prime Minister and his Cabinet. 5) POLYGAMY The Japanese imperial dynasty consistently practiced official polygamy. Besides his empress, the Emperor could take several secondary consorts or concubines; which helped produce more offspring for the imperial clan 6) FIRST COMMONER WIFE In the history of the Japanese Imperial Family, there was never an Emperor who had a commoner as wife or even concubine. That is, until now. The current Emperor of Japan married Empress Michiko, a commoner! She was not from the former court nobility nor from one of the former branches of the Imperial Family. Michiko was the daughter of an industrialist 7) FISH SCIENCE (Ichthyology = Fish Science) The Emperor is a published ichthyological researcher, having written papers for several scholarly journals, and has specialised studies within the taxonomy of the family Gobiidae. Random 8) STOP GAP EMPRESSES Generally, it has been males who have ascended Japan’s Chrysanthemum Throne. However, if a suitable male was not available, there have been times where women have ascended the throne; almost as a stop gap measure. Of the 125 monarchs, there have been 8 women who have reigned on 10 different occasions. 2 of them reigned twice. Once a suitable male descendant was considered old enough to rule, many Empresses, and even Emperors, abdicated or relinquished the throne 9) CHILD EMPERORS Over a thousand years ago, a tradition started that an Emperor should ascend young. If he had passed his toddler years, he was said to be old enough. Being a child was apparently a fine property 10) ABDICATING TREND Abdication was very common. Actually it was more frequent than death on the throne. The Emperors tasks involved so many repetitive rituals that after about ten years of service, it was deemed a reasonable compensation to live the rest of their lives in pampered retirement! ---------------------- ABOUT We do videos on interesting 'Asiany' topics - Asian stereotypes, Asian pop culture, Asian issues, Asian history, AMWF, and things you just didn't know about Asia!

Shipbuilding in Japan Japanology

Shipbuilding in Japan Japanology Japan's modern shipbuilding industry began shortly after the Meiji Restoration, when the government bought existing facilities, invested in new equipment, and later sold the shipyards to private companies. By the end of World War I, Japan was the third-ranked shipbuilding nation in the world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Shipbuilding_companies_of_Japan Please Subscribe to my Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFbMJbRJAGhwiFEd39vt4hg My Twitter: https://twitter.com/MellowinJapan My Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mellowinjapan/ My Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Mellow-In-Japan-892768857551373 Buy Bitcoin in Japan on the #1 Exchange https://coincheck.com/?c=yuAswlE6Y2I TheBest Exchanges from anywhere: Join Binance Here: https://www.binance.com/?ref=23602100 Join HitBTC: https://hitbtc.com/?ref_id=5a5e9906b36e6 Buy Anything With Bitcoin Here!
