why do so many people that make history documentaries think that we do not need any maps? You can't understand anything of history without maps. The Portuguese came...where did they landed? What was in the neighbourhood? The child was brought away from his father...where did the father lived? where was it brought?

All those comments about Japanese stealing China and Korean culture is sad. If that is the case it would seem like they should possess unequal superiority but that is not the case. Like everything else Japan takes in whatever is good and seem to make it better. Getting tired of all the butt hurt comments that you see in all videos that has anything to do with Japan. Internet is full of know it all adolescent.

Story starts at 2:30. Why do these documentaries always have to spend so much time up front telling us what they're about to tell us? We don't need to be sold on this; we're already watching it. Just tell the story.

I enjoyed the video, but to use the term ancient, when advertising it, gave a misleading impression of what it was to be about.t Please state what you will be covering, truthfully?

not history of japan, but that of the foreigners. what i would like is that a japanese guy start the story about themselves, not to the eyes of the foreigners.

Like others that commented before me, I expected for this film to start with the ancient history of Japan. Even more important, this documentary completely ignores an event of great importance for the times described in it. It is about Toyotomi Hideyoshi's ambition to conquer all of Asia that became known through the Portuguese newcomers. He really believed that he can conquer Korea, China and later India. After his first invasion of Korea started in 1592 and ended in defeat, he staged a second invasion in 1596, this time more realistic: focused on and hoping for Korea only. The Koreans defeated the Japanese again, this time with some help from the Chinese of the Ming dynasty. Those 2 wars affected deeply both countries. It was the most devastating event for Korea in the last millennium, worse than what happened in 1950-1953. For Japan it also mattered. Most contingents of Samurai sent to Korea were given by the Daimyo that ruled on the shores facing Korea. Only years later these provinces that got depleted of many soldiers will face Tokugawa Ieyasu at the Battle of Sekigahara. With the additional help of the soldiers previously lost in Korea, the battle may had ended in a different way.

This started quite late in the history of Japan. What about the tribes well before the 7th century. They had huts and artwork. They just began when the Euros arrived. Helpful but surely not complete.
Matt
I'm surprised the Japanese hadn't seen guns before the Europeans arrived. Especially since China created gun powder and they're so close to each other. Also, the history of Japan began when the Europeans arrived? I guess nothing happened before that.... Also the Samurai killing people who were rude to them...called Kirisute Gomen.

Thumbs down this is junk. Japanese history doesn't start with the Portuguese discovering them. I was expecting to see how the country of Japan came to be, not a history starting with other countries making contact with them. Waste of time

Something interesting for Christians. Many Christians were killed in japan in approximately the 17 century. Nagasaki was the place where each year each Japanese hade to trample on a little wood board containing a cross or a picture of Jesus pbuh. Now remember where the atomic bomb landed in japan? In Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Nagasaki was the Christians stronghold, and many died there under extreme torture. And like the Japanese inflicted humiliation on the Christians, God swt humiliated the Nagasaki’s.

This documentary is from a bais european religious view that does not mention that the first japanese were black or rather dark skin people. The first emperor also was black. But japanese people hide that fact.... The Ainu are the indigenous peoples of Japan and far east Russia. Although the true number of Ainu descendants living in Japan is unknown, it is believed that only 200 pure blood Ainu remain, most of these upon Japan’s northernmost island of Hokkaido. Though the Ainu have their own language, they do not have a written alphabet. The language and the culture of the Ainus is under constant assault from the realities of their present life. Even the spoken language is becoming much rarer. Sooner or later the Ainu way of life may die out and only records of their culture, their wisdom and their stories may lie buried. Genetically they more similar to dark-skinned groups found in Southeast Asia than the Japanese or Koreans. In Japanese history the period between 10,000 and 400 B.C. is known as the Jomon Period. The people of the Jomon culture who lived at this time are regarded as Japan’s first major culture. Many scholars believe that the Jomon people were Ainu or at least that the Ainus are the descendants of the Jomon People. There are similarities between the two early peoples of Japan. The skull and facial structures of the Jomon people and the Ainu are similar to each other. DNA samples taken from ancient burials also indicates that the Jomon people were similar genetically to the Ainu but very different from modern Japanese. Ainus and Jomons differ from the modern Japanese. Sampling analysis shows that modern Japanese are similar genetically to modern Chinese and Koreans. It is not denied that modern Japanese are settlers from the Chinese mainland and Korea. They are linked to Chinese and Korean peoples not Jomon and the Ainus people, the original people of Japan. Archaeologists have found Japanese-style Jomon pottery fragments on Vanuatu (a Pacific island east of Papua New Guinea and 6,000 miles south of Japan) dated to 3000 B.C. This suggests a cultural connection between the two cultures living so far away from each other. The Ainus suffered and still suffer a lot of discrimination. They face discrimination in getting jobs and social benefits. Their children face discrimination and bullying at school. They are called “inus” the Japanese words for dogs. At the start of 20th century, the Ainu language was suppressed by the majority Japanese. Their settlements were uprooted, they were forced to assimilate as lower class Japanese, and they were given land and neighbourhoods rejected by the majority Japanese. One can assess the level of racism against the Ainus when it is realized that the modern Chinese/Korean descended Japanese pretend that they are indigenous, rather than settlers; and they down-play the fact that there were original black muurish Japanese. Perhaps it is because they stole the land from the indigenes. Perhaps they do not want to recall the true owners of the beautiful land which they stole, the land belonging to another Asiatic black people, the Ainus, the last Muurs of Japan.

Japan is number one IN BOW JOBS IN THE WORLD Fugu is an aid to giving really good bow jobs: Fugu is the Japanese blow-fish which is a poisonous fish but is served in some of the finest Japanese restaurants at a considerable price. What one is paying for is the removal of the toxin (tetrodotoxin) so the eater won't die... but not all of it. In fact patrons must sign waivers and chefs must be licensed and even then every year people die in Japan from eating Fugu. Why do people assume such risks? Fugu is a drug experience. It leaves the body tingling and slightly numb... just what the Japanese Yakuza or CEO needs for a five hour bow job. Knowing this underside of FUGU eating, tabloid papers are always printing pictures of various celebrities eating FUGU. Some even have contests where only the mouth parts of the guest will be shown and people try to guess the Fugu guest just by the mouth. The interest is that Japanese are always attempting to 'save face' i.e. not be embarrassed and so the point of the contest is to embarrass the guest. The picture of the male Fugu patron is shown as it is no big deal that a male wants a five hour bow job after a Fugu meal. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/jul/12/tokyo-eases-restrictions-blowfish They dismiss as a myth the idea that trace amounts of poison are occasionally left intact to produce a tingling sensation on the diner's lips. Wrong Organ!

What confuses me is, during World War II, the Japanese chose to fight on despite how their army was deteriorating. Their people were starving and they were facing constant bombardment from the air. It took two atomic bombs for them to surrender but they chose to negotiate with Matthew C Perry and open up their country for trade. Why didn't they call for a cease fire and negotiate in 1945?

With new military gun and ship building technology from the Portuguese in the 1543 (also later from the British, Italy & Germany), Japan started to make them self copies soon after their military industrialization, Japan began to rebel and separate themselves away from the thousand of years relationship with the their most respected mother country - Ming Dynasty (The Imperial Chinese Empire) as a humble Chinese distance sovereignty/Tributary state (番屬國 - 倭國). After the years of winning numerical civil wars, Japan became overwhelmingly ambitious, they began to educate their people with the mind of absolute obedience by embracing their patriotic military supremacy, which later became their greed and grave for oversea expansion. In WW2 Japan aligned with Nazi Germany, started their invasion of Korea, Ryukyu Kingdom, China, Mongolia, Taiwan, Philippine, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the rest of other neighbouring countries including Russia, Australia and later the islands of America.

For everyone complaining about the "wrong" title... The title is actually very accurate, because it tells you that is about Japan, and "Japan" concept started with the arrival of foreign, more powerful, peoples like the portuguese who were the top of the world in that time. My explanation should have had been given by the documentary, which is mentioned actually, but for a short moment and most of you won't see it.

Why freaking foreigners telling the history of someone else's country? White people wanting to conquer Japan using their christianity stuff but got exposed. Then they want to portray themselves as victims and martyrs when their intentions were to numb Japan, then come in with troops to kill and conquer. Japan did the right thing killing all European foreigners trying to sneak in and closing all relations except for a chosen few Euros......they would've been extinct. Japs are a great people.....Respect!
MrRaretunes
Japan was just a head cutting off culture before WHITE POWER!!!
Michael Wargon
there are a lot of flaws with this documentary. First of all, Japanese at that time were not inclined to adapt new things especially from a foreign country except China. It was Oda Nobunaga that allowed the Portuguese to set up churches. Tokugawa Ieasu did leave his mark by establishing Edo but through Oda Nobunaga revolutionary ideas. Another fault was everyone could have swords including farmers until Toyotomi Hideyoshi declared that only the bushi were allowed to carry swords. By the way, this isn't ancient Japan. There was Soga Umako, Taira Kiyomori , Benke , Minamoto Yoshitsune or Yoritomo (cousins).
Gravity Priest
Great documentary. Let us all be real here though and acknowledge that the Christians were not even CLOSE to the only people persecuted for their beliefs. It could be argued that most of the people subdued by the Shoguns could be said to have been subdued because of their beliefs, religious or otherwise.
DZilian
what about when japan closed all trade with the outside world and america storms an armada into thier port and forces them at cannon point to reopen the trade routes i didnt hear anyhting about that only ending civil wars and feudal lords. American propaganda. might be true but some facts have been scrubbed over or left out entirely.
Michael Wargon
It is true that the emperor had no power but they respected the emperor. Hideyori was Hideyoshi's son but not through his wife Nene.

Japan, the only nation in the world to have nuclear weapons used against it(by white people). Yet Japanese, and Asians in general still worship whites and hate blacks. Gotta love it.

samourais were cowards to escape life with suicide, there is no honor in it. They forever died as cowards. If you look at noble animals all will try to live on no matter how badly wounded they may be and will only die when nature allows them to. That is much harder than suicide, humble, strong and praiseworthy. Suicide is for cowards, lost teenagers commit suicide, weak people commit suicide not strong ones. Japanese culture only hides cowardice it can not reverse values. I see samurais as the epitomy of weakness, too weak to face their situation. For strength is not displayed when one wins but when one looses and is capable to live on. A thief or even a murderer is more worthy than someone healthy who commits suicide. There is nothing more dishonorable and weak, even ridiculous than for a healthy person to commit suicide. I would feel shame if someone in my ancestors commited suicide, ancient japanese culture was weak spiritually and morally.

To everyone getting triggered over this documentary, its actual title is "Japan: Memoirs of a Secret Empire", and its supporting text explains that it is a history of the isolationist Tokugawa Shogunate that ruled in Japan from the 16th to the 19th century. It does not claim to be a comprehensive history of Japan, and it makes clear that it was a "secret empire" in that it deliberately isolated itself from the west and the rest of the world.

Thanks for uploading. However it's disappointing on many levels. Still better than nothing as Japan is still very unknown to many people.

I'm trying to find out about Japan's earlier history. The Heian period, the Kamakura shogunate, and so on. Why is it that the 1500s is the farthest back I can find anything on? If anything, the local libraries are even worse because they have nothing on Japan except for World War II.

I thought I would see something about Jomon or Yayoi Period first not the Sengoku Jidai, this is pratically Feudal Japan which is basically their middle age and I know alot about it already. Come on if I want to see this I will look for it I want more about the real Ancient Japans History or about Himiko or Amaterasu.

Interesting but this is not the history of ancient Japan. It is made as if the history of this island started at the time Europeans arrived. Where is the “ancient” part mentioned in the title? It is not as if there is no written record.

Well since Japanese history doesn't exist apparently before 1443. I will make it up and pretend its the truth. 3ooo years ago a tribe moved to japan from Korea/northern china area after a long migration from north of Tibet. They encountered a neolithic population that had been seperated from other people for hundreds if not thousands of years. due to tribe A's technology they had advantage. Slowly destroying tribe Bs dominance. a thousand years later after generations of interbreeding they become one population that is united by king who becomes emporer. Tribe B still exsist in small pockets but no longer pose a danger to tribe A and are therefore forgotten for the most part.

When history starts in the 16. century it becomes a bit shallow.
