Course Description: This course surveys the international relations of Japan with China, Korea, and Europe up to the 17th century. The course begins with an investigation into the relative free official relations with China during the Heian Period (794-1185). It then looks at the development of diplomacy and trade in East Asia, focusing on the “sea-closing policy” of China from the 14th to the 16th centuries and the activity of Japanese diplomatic and trade missions to China and Korea. The course also considers the activity of pirates, the travels of Buddhist pilgrims and official embassies to China and their diaries, and Chinese and Korean records on Japan for a better understanding of the mutual images of these countries in pre-modern times. Other topics include relations with Europe during the 16th century, the new quality of foreign relations during the Edo Period, the development and role of the port cities Hirado and Nagasaki, and trade with Europeans and Chinese.
