Storyboard Text

  • Decades later, after Japan had tired of being  controlled, Japan began to rebel and claim territory for itself, such as China and Taiwan.
  • A few years after the treaties were signed,  US and European armies opened fire on two Japanese cities to show military dominance.
  • Japan before it was opened up
  • Emperors had no jobs other than having the emperor title.
  • The US Government sent Commodore Perry to  try to imperialize them like the European countries did with Africans, but they said it was to protect trade.
  • Military guards had more authority than the emperor did, they practically ran the country
  • After Commodore Perry arrived    in Japan with a bigger army 8 months later,  he forced the Japanese government into opening  2 ports for small amounts of trade.
  • Soon after, Japan became a world power, becoming the first Asian country to have full equality with the US and  European nations.
