4º British: Japan


Here you have a link of a very complete and interesting video (University of South Australia) for a small review of the Meiji era (8 minutes). 

Besides, as we have mentioned in class, one of the greatest film directors of all times was the japanese Akira Kurosawa. You can watch the trailer of one of his most famous movies: “Sichinin no samurai” (“The seven samurai”). Believed or not, this film was adapted later by Hollywood as Western and even animation movie... Look!


If you want to know more about Kurosawa, have this 20-minute documentary on youtube.

Finally, and if you are curious about the language, you can learn the basics of Japanese (alphabet, numbers, colors, ...) on the web digital dialects. J
