Chapter 8 JapanSection 8.3 Growth of a Military SocietyOrder Breaks Down Hannah Leib Sarah Doyle & Dakota Murray
Introduction In the last section you learned about how the Samurai lead honorable lives. They did this by following a set of rules called Bushido. In this section, Order Breaks Down, we learn about the foreign invasions and internal rebellion. Which weakened Japan.
Foreign Invasions • Chinas emperor (Kublai Khan)= ordered army to attack islands in 1274 • Warriors= hit by storm. • Storm= sank many ships, Mongols left • 1281= Mongols invaded again • Again, another storm hit Japan • Storm= kamikaze “divine wind” • Nobles=unhappy, shoguns did not give them credit
Internal Rebellion • Emperor = tired of no control • Nobles/Diamyo = wanted to break from shogun • Small wars • 1400s • Shoguns lost power • Diamyo controlled their territory • No central powerful authority
Conclusion In this section you learned about how foreign invasion and internal rebellion weakened Japan. However in the end of the section you learned that the nobles and emperor had gained much power. In the next section you will learn about how leaders compete to unify Japan and isolate it from the rest of the world.
