What did common people do in their normal lives in 18th century Japan? What kind of work did they do? What did they eat? What tools did they use? What was normal and natural for them? Use this engaging reference resource to find the answers to these and many other questions concerning the details of living in this culture during this time period. Visit Japan during a period many consider to have been the height of its uniqueness, when it was relatively free from foreign influence and was not yet as westernized as it is today, to find out what everyday living was like for its people. Readers will learn what the Japanese population was like during this time period, how these people dressed, what their homes were like, how they spent their leisure time, what their work was like and much more. Over forty illustrations help bring this culture to life and a time line helps to connect political history with social history. Modern readers will be surprised to find fundamental similarities between our lives today and the lives of these people, as well as to discover major differences and to learn how the Japanese culture has evolved over a relatively short period of time.
