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

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.

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?

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.

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.

Lol . . . so many comments self-hating white people complaining about how this documentary starts when the Portuguese make contact with the Japanese! That's the uploader's fault folks, not the documentarians. The whole point of the video was to cover the history of Japan during its isolation period, hence the title: Secret Empire. It's when the country was SUPER mysterious to everyone outside of it, not just Europeans but China, and well, everyone. But the uploader is bad at titles I guess. Also seriously, one of the advantages of this period, historically, is that we're getting multile sources on these events which makes it more confirmable: if something happened that the missionaries and the Japanese themselves wrote about you can be better assured it probably actually happened. When you go further back in Japanese history, a LOT more of it gets obfuscated by legends and mythology (or mainland bias when you compare it to Chinese history).

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.
Critic Number 4
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.
sumyamchi
This glorification of the violent Samurai ruling class being judge jury and executioner is really disgusting. If the Samurai didn't have the facade of civility, they would be regarded as a criminal gang in the modern world.
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).
Caliedhe Dosiere
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.

There was still an Emperor during the Shogunate, it isn't made clear here what the actual role of that person was. I assume that the Shogun was technically subordinate to the Emperor but in practice actually ruled the country?
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.

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.

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.

The DNA tests on 92 LIVING KHASIS by the Genographic Project of National Geographic and subsequently confirmed by other DNA tests prove their ancient age - 57000 years. The DNA tests should be extended to many more Khasis to confirm their real age as Khasis believe they arrived about 120000 years ago at present day Khasi-Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya at the foothills of the Himalayas. They also spread out to modern day Vietnam, China, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar etc. Visit the Heritage of Japan website where Researcher Aileen Kawagoe names the Waar (War) of Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya India as one of the Genetic sources of Early Japanese. The name Japan comes from the Khasi phrase 'Ai Ja Pa' meaning 'Give me rice Father'. This gradually shortened to 'Ja Pa' meaning 'Rice Father'. From the Khasi-Jaintia Hills, they landed by boat at the place where stands now the most ancient Kashi ma Shrine and Kashima city so named after Khasi Ma or Khasi Mei or Mei Khasi meaning Khasi Mother. Like their Khasi-Jaintia ancestors who believed that they descended from Heaven, the earliest Japanese Fudoki believed that the Kashima/Khasi Ma Celestial God descended from Heaven. The Khasi have a Sun Goddess 'Ka Sngi.' The Japanese too have a Sun Goddess - Amaterasu Omikami. The Khasis have a rooster as their important symbol. The Rooster is an auspicious symbol for Japanese Shinto. The Khasis never had any written history just oral history. Many secrets were passed down orally among a select few. Now with DNA technology, it is time to tell these ancient stories which would have been laughed at earlier. There are many many more ancient secrets among the Khasis and Jaintias of Meghalaya State, lying at the foothills of the Himalayas. Remember, they arrived where they are at least 57000 years ago. To put that into context, the Hindu civilization is just 5000 years old. Amanda Huang in her writing 'DNA profiles of Han Taiwanese' also links the Taiwanese with the Khasi Austro-Asiatic people. From the Khasi Hills, after arriving out of Africa, about 57000 - 120000 years ago, the Khasis spread all over the world. They set up the Sumerian, Babylonian & Phoenician kingdoms. Their traces are found in so many places. Herodotus, the ancient Greek historian called Britain Cassiteriades or Kassiterides, the Khasi Tin Islands. They were all over Britain but were called different names. They mined Tin, Gold, Silver and grew wheat. Their ancient name for Britain was Ka Dew Lynnong Pyrdain or The Isle of Pyrdain meaning in Khasi ‘The Island of Wisdom’. They also called Britain 'Bilat' after the White Limestone Cliffs of Dover.Julius Caesar names a Cassi tribe which fought against the Romans under their Chief Cassi-Vellaunus. Caesar landed around the Wantsum Channel and crossed the River Thames at the Kew ford. 'Wan Sum' in Khasi means 'Come and bathe'. The Kew or Quay Hoh Gardens are named after the Cassi or Khasi harvest chant Hoh Kew or Hoi Kew. Kew means wheat in Khasi & the Cassi tribe is known to have grown wheat in Britain. The Khasi / Cassi name for the third largest city of Roman Britain was Hangne-ruh-la-mih-Um, later shortened to Uerulamium and then to Verulamium. In Khasi it meant 'Here too water has come out'. 'La Mih Um' means 'Water has come out'. Present day Colchester city was known in pre-Roman times as Ca-mulo-don-um. 'Ka mluh don um' is a Khasi phrase meaning 'There is salt in the water'. The old name of Thames in Khasi is Them Sum. The area around the Thames was then a low-lying area covered in water, much more than now. 'Them' in Khasi means low-lying. 'Them Sum' means 'low-lying area for bathing'. It gradually became Thames. Ask any Khasi. He will say that Cheddar Man looks like a typical rural Khasi villager. The Cav-Casia or today's Caucasus mountains (Pliny the Elder 's Natural History, 77-79 AD, called them by what the Greeks knew them - Kau-Khasis, the Scythians called the Caucasus - Kroy Khasis) , the Cas-pian sea, the Kassite Kingdom of Babylonia, the Kashi kingdom in Northern India, the holy city of Varanasi was the ancient Khasi city of Kashi, the city of Kashan in ancient Persia around which there was a Kassi tribe, the Catti tribe of Germany, the Casses in France, the ancient Celtic,the Ecossais, Cassi, Picts, Etruscans - all descend from this most ancient Khasi tribe. They were matrilineal & erected Monoliths wherever they lived for a long time. They also wore distinct tartan shawls. They still maintain their Sacred Forests, refuse to sell their lands which have rich uranium deposits in spite of being offered huge bribes, have monoliths all over the Khasi Hills, build awesome Living Root Tree Bridges (MUST SEE), still practise their Khasi herbal traditional medicine, pass their surnames through the mothers, give their inheritance to the youngest daughter, preserve the world's oldest living religion and have a priesthood similar to the ancient Druids. Many Khasis and Jaintias have become Christians converted by Welsh, Irish, English, Scottish, Germans, Italians, Spanish, French, American and Maltese missionaries. But a significant size of the population remain with their ancient Khasi Religion, the oldest living religion of the world.

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.

With new military gun and ship building technologies imported from the Portuguese in the 1543 (also later from the British, Italy & Germany), Japan started to make them self copies soon after their first military industrialization, Japan began to rebel and separate themselves away from their thousand of years relationship with the their most respected mother land - 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. During WW2, Japan aligned with Nazi Germany and Italy, started their invasion of Korea, Ryukyu Kingdom (Okinawa), China, Mongolia, Taiwan, Philippine, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the rest of other neighbouring countries including Russia, Australia and later the remote islands of America.

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.

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?

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!

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.

I would agree that the History of Japan's unification isn't "ancient" history, but establishes a regime that lasted 250 years until Japan was forced to open up to the West again and the beginning of Japan's Meiji Era and Modern Japanese history begins. Sakoku Isolationism helped to refine Japanese society, establish a complex system of finance, a precursor to the modern stock market at a time when Europe was still economically and politically far less sophisticated than Japanese Society. I tend to agree that while this documentary is well researched, it is rather Eurocentric. I'm interested in finding any Western or Japanese documentary that explains the structure, politics and economics Japanese society during the Nara and Heian, Kamakura and Muromach periods.

the children of israel were transplanted by conquering powers, babylon assyria and persia who continued the captivity of israel with the exception o9f Judah. the other children of abraham to the northeast. ishmael dwelt to the southeast. edom settled the southwest and the children of ephraim and benjamin to the northwest. this was the pattern of history and of the israelite nations in prophecy. ishmael is the easiest to identify. they re islamic nations. edr m settled in tyre and to the south of judah where herod came from and during the campaign of caesar as ne invaded Egypt, edo immigrated into greece and italy a the edomites were pronounced Roman citizens asa reward for helping caesar. after the carthaginian war with Rome. and during the fall of Rome edomites invaded spain. those who settled with austria learned slavic. the edomites spoke romance languages with the exception of france who sill speak a germanic conjugation of latin words. the israelite tribes who followed joseph spoke germanic. English is the germanic of german that became English while german i9s the benjamin version of german. is is said that dan became danmark, zebulon became holland. when joseph was thought dead in egypt facob counted benjamin as josephs replacement as the birthright tribe, so joseph was the birthright tribe but benjamin was another birthright nation that also colonized norway and sweden. in biblical times judah led a movement to eradicate benjamin, in our day the descendants of benjamin took revenge upon judah. leading to the holocaust. all actions in history have repercussions for the future. . nevertheless individuals on israelites spread in all directions, africa, china india and south america for scattered peoples who were scattered throughout the world. then there Are the MAKIA IF JAPAN
