Storyboard Text

  • From 1600 to 1868 Japan had the "Tokugawa Shogunate," which expelled missionaries and virtually closed the nation's borders to foreigners.
  • Eventually, the Tokugawa Shogunate fell into increasing debt, and as well as being overthrown, Japan made no attempt to finance the defeat, thus causing it to fall.
  • The same rebel samurai who overthrew the Tokugawa Shogunate restored the sixteen-year-old Meiji Emperor as the source of political legitimacy and continuity.
  • Over time, the West began to affect Japan by modernizing their government and community.
  • Eventually, Japan's military grew, and it became restless and strong, beginning Japanese Militarism.
  • The United States occupied Japan after WWII.
