    This week on the Revised Introduction to Japanese History: during the 1920s, Japan's political system became more democratic and representative--an "imperial democracy" that evolved out of the Meiji system.

    Episode 532 - Cash Rules Everything Around Me

    This week on the Revised Introduction to Japanese History: the economics of Meiji Japan, and a brief foray into social attitudes towards Westernization. How did Japan transform itself from being largely cut off from the world economy to central to it within half a century, and what impact did all this change have on the national self-image and culture?

    Also: there will be no episode next week, as I will be on a school trip touring Japan with students.

Perfect Podcast to Spark Your Interest

This is a great series that perfectly condensed important topics in all aspects of Japanese history. It really is a great gateway to start researching further on certain subjects. It even cover topics that average Japanese tend to ignore, or fails to teach in school!
Thank you very much!
