Japans perspective during the basic reign of Chinaaaaa:)
My people, we will be changing a few of our ways here. We have to be careful with such a powerful kingdom in power. We will be adopting many customs from China
But we can not bring their foot binding methods into our kingdom. We should let the women be able to walk and not suffer throughout the years as they grow up.
Is it not marvelous? They created a mix of a religion like for example, Zen Buddhism and Neo- Confucianism. What other kind of kingdom could have such a strong influence to do that!
*later that evening*
Tang China even brought us the Compass! And I have only heard stories about this magnificent boat called the junk.
This whole transition will be good for us. We can even use their wood block printing which should help us sufficiently.
We must keep on living by the Bushido code.
Brethren did you hear that new story? The Tale of Genji i think its called. I heard that theres no other book like it! It
Why are you taking about some book when the Fujiwara Clan has just taken over. Why are you not panicking?
Did you even know about what they traded? They traded porcelain, tea, and silk! You can see their wealth!

Guards to your stations!
And after the Minamoto family had taken rule, they brought the position of Shogun with them!
Well i heard that sounds like a pile of trash!
Well work calls. I will meet up with you at lunch!
Okay sure the Daimyo were a bit upset at the whole ordeal but i am sure that it will pass! We even provided some protection with the Samurai protecting citizens land in exchange for shelter and food and the rest of the necessities!
