    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class can give a person a sense of culture, different from their own. If for any reason a person plans to visit Japan, this course examines historical me cultural aspects, giving the traveler a sense of belonging and understanding after arriving.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting subject, was the Tokugawa era, also known as Edo Period. Today Edo is known as Tokyo. I began to understand how society was categorized, based on what commodity was mostly needed. After constant war, this era gained 200 years of peace and prosperity. Samurai warriors, who used to be the highest class of individuals, were no longer needed for battle. Merchants, who were once lower in level of class, become top priority, as new road systems were built, allowing them to travel long distances for sales of produce to several parts of Japan.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must do the assigned readings thoroughly. Compare lecture notes with the readings and write everything down. Complete assignments with excellent grammar. Complete all the discussions. Every little point counts toward your grade.
