  • “ Harmony should be valued and quarrels (argument) should be avoided. Everyone has his bias (prejudice) and few men are far-sighted. Therefore some disobey their lords and fathers and keep up feuds (arguments) with their neighbors. But when superiors are in harmony with each other an inferiors are friendly, then affairs are discussed quietly and the right view of matters prevails (do well).” ~Prince Shotoku What philosophy does Prince Shotoku seem to be influenced by? Why?
    • The Japanese kept some Chinese ideas, and rejected others.
    • This is known as selective borrowing.
    • For example, there are Chinese symbols in written Japanese.
    • Japanese Feudalism
    • European Feudalism
    Emperor - Highest position but no political power Shogun - Actual ruler Daimyo - Powerful landowners Samurai - gave protection for land Code of Bushido - behavior code Seppuku - ritual suicide, rather than live without honor Peasants and artisans - provided food and weapons Merchants - gained status slowly King Lords and nobles Knights Code of Chivalry Pope Serfs Merchants - High Middle Ages Later
  • Feudalism Emerges
    • While Japan had an emperor, rival clans battled for control of rural countryside.
    • Local warlords formed groups loyal to them, not the emperor.
    • Real power lay in the shogun , or supreme military commander.
    • The shogun gave land to vassal lords called daimyos .
    • Daimyos gave land to lesser warriors called samurai , or “those who serve.”
  • Like knights, samurai were heavily armed and trained in fighting. They also had a code of values, known as bushido , or “way of the warrior.” Bushido emphasized honor, bravery, and loyalty to the daimyo.
    • A samurai who betrayed the code of bushido was expected to commit seppuku , or ritual suicide, rather than live without honor.
    • The samurai would impale himself on his sword.
  • Everybody Else
    • Far below the samurai were the peasants, artisans, and merchants.
    • Peasants, who made up 75% of Japan, formed the backbone of feudal society.
    • Peasant families cultivated rice and other crops on estates of samurai.
    • Some peasants served as soldiers; rarely, some even became samurai.
  • Noblewomen
    • Some noblewomen trained in the military and became warriors.
    • There was no chivalry; warriors’ wives endured hardships and also owed loyalty to the lords.
  • Failure to Conquer Japan
    • In 1274 and again in 1281, Kublai sent huge fleets against Japan.
    • Both times, the Japanese turned them back.
    • A typhoon ( kamikaze) even destroyed one Mongol fleet.
  • C A S T L E S
    • Unlike the solid steel plates used by European knights, Japanese armor consisted of thin strips of steel held together by brightly colored silk cords.
  •  
    • The true samurai was supposed to have no fear of death.
    • “ If you think of saving your life,” it was said, “you had better not go to war at all.”
    • Samurai prepared for hardship by going hungry or walking barefoot in the snow.
    • It was said, “When a samurai’s stomach is empty, it is a disgrace to feel hungry.”
    • Similarities between a samurai and a knight are…
    • Differences between them are…
