The Floating World in Japanese Fiction is the product of many years of study. The book features extensive historical context and commentary on the Genroku Era of Japanese history, the time when the ukiyo lifestyle was born and thrived. Also, the book contains Hibbett 's translations of the works, and their original illustrations, he claims epitomize the spirit of the ukiyo movement. The preface introduces the most important Japanese words, which will all be repeated throughout Hibbett 's criticism. A reader without any significant knowledge of the Japanese language may easily fail to initially comprehend the difference between these three main terms: ukiyo, ukiyo-e, and ukiyo-zōshi.
3.2 Internationalization of Education in Japan: Great Education Reforms Japan has long been influenced by foreign education systems such as Chinese Confucianism and Buddhism since the 6th century and Dutch studies in the Edo period (1603–1868). In that context, it can be said that the internationalization of Japanese education proceeded with influences from the outside world. This was especially true in the Meiji era (1868–1912), when Japan’s internationalization was identical with the modernization of the country. The modernization of Japanese education started with the Meiji Restoration in the 1860s, when more than 250 years of feudal military government (the Edo period) came to an end and imperial rule was restored. Rappleye and Kariya (2011, p.53) point out that since the Meiji Restoration, Japan experienced three ‘Great Education Reforms’, namely the reform in the early Meiji era (1868–1890), during World War II and its aftermath (1937–1955), and the reform initiated under Prime Minister Nakasone’s Ad Hoc Council for Education (1983–1987).
The Impact of Rice on Japanese Identity The aim of this essay is to explore how Rice is connected to the production of Japanese culture and society. I will argue, following Bourdieu, that Japanese culture and religious beliefs have been shaped and defined by their staple food; Rice. The essay will also discuss the impact of rice on Japanese morals and Japanese society as a whole. The demographics that this essay will concentrate on are; the influence rice plays in the Japanese religion; Shinto, and how the very nature of Japan’s spiritualism is in direct correlation with the use of rice in their society. “It’s impossible to overstate the importance of rice to the Japanese: the countries origins are rooted in the stuff” (McCurry, 2011) Historians have debated where rice originated from and tend to suggest that rice was first produced in China.
2. Biographical Background The British novelist, Pico Iyer, notes in 1994 that, “To this day, one notices, he [Ishigu-ro] refers to both the Japanese and the British as ‘they’ and seems to look on both with an outsider’s amused detachment” (Iyer, “Connoisseur of Memory” 42). As shown in this minute observation, Ishiguro apparently has a distinct background among a number of contemporary writers in Britain, in that he immersed himself both into Japan and into Britain; and this biculturalism should be relevant to his writing. Thus, before proceeding directly to examine Ishiguro’s Japaneseness in his style, it is essential to overview his personal history. As a prominent British writer, Ishiguro has talked about himself in plenty of interviews, and they are considerably useful to understand what he is.
Diverse aspects of Korea have been argued among scholars for decades. The intimate traditions of the Korean law system have been agreed by many that it was influenced by the Japanese from the colonial period. Marie Seong-Hak Kim describes Korea as a country being ‘Japanized’ by Japan’s customary law; Korea has adopted Japan’s legal system by Japan’s continuous efforts to unify Korea with Japan’s culture and characteristics. Apart from the accusations of Japan’s relationship with Korea, the comparison of Korea with France also takes place due to the fact that France was the first to develop the idea of customary law. Kim mentions the concepts of customs and the importance of its meaning not only in Korea, but also in other East Asian countries.
