  • 21.4 Social Position in the Heian Court
  • Heian-kyo is the golden age of Japan. This was the greatest time for the Japanese. The capital was Kyoto. This is where it was very similar to Nara which was influenced by Chang'an. It too had a wall protecting it.
  • 21.5 Beauty and Fashion During the Heian Period
  • During much of the Heian period, aristocrats were the political and cultural leaders of Japan. By the mid-9th century, the real power in the imperial court shifted from the emperor to aristocratic families. The most important of these noble families were the Fujiwara, who controlled Japan for nearly 300 years.
  • 21.6 Entertainment in the Heian Court
  • As known, Japan has different rankings for different social parts. However, how do we tell them apart? Well, the Japanese used the amount of folds on a fan and the color of one's clothing to determine the rank.
  • 21. 7 Sculpture and Painting in the Heian Period
  • During the Heian Period, one must become atrractive to become more higher in their appearance. However, both men and women had different expectations. Men would have pointed beard while women had white faces. However, both would have black teeth.
  • Heian-kyo's aristocrats had plenty of leisure time for sporting events, games, and contests. Men enjoyed watching horse races, archery contests, and sumo wrestling. In sumo wrestling, young men of great weight try to throw each other to the ground or out of the ring. When the weather was warm, men and women alike enjoyed watching boat races along the river that ran through the city.
  • During the Heian Period, many Japanese craftpeople made sculptures and paintings. Some of the paintings were different and many types. This was also the same for the sculptures.
