Sample text

Already fluent in Dutch, English, French, and German, Verbeck was keenly interested in acquiring Japanese as quickly as possible to aid in his evangelizing work. He also developed a keen interest in Nanga-style painting and often visited Kinoshita’s school, met with his students, and asked numerous questions. In April 1864 he moved temporarily with his family to Shanghai to escape the tense atmosphere surrounding all foreigners in Japan as a result of the many antiforeign incidents and assassinations associated with late Tokugawa times.

For the Five Dynasties era (907–60) following the collapse of the Tang, we have records of Chinese ships reaching Japanese ports ten times, and we have the names of a handful of Japanese monks who boarded those vessels to hitch a ride to China. 38 By all accounts, genuine trade seems to have transpired in the immediate post-Tang years, something we have not as yet seen in any substantive sense. Inasmuch as we know that the subsequent Northern Song dynasty (960–1127) engaged in a considerable volume of trade with Japan, might we conjecture that the Tang-Song divide marked in Sino-Japanese interactions the transition from a largely cultural to a more economic basis, or at least might we conjecture that economic motives joined cultural ones, as well as Sino-Japanese Relations 21 vestiges of political ones from even earlier, as the fundament for continuing Sino-Japanese ties?

The transition from late Heian to Kamakura also marks a shift away from regimes with a literary-based cultural priority toward the first of a series of military-based regimes. Contacts continued throughout, but the nature of the bond was changing considerably. After some three centuries of Chinese cultural sharing and Japanese masticating on it, the attitude of China toward things Japanese appears much reduced in paternalism. In the Song dynastic history, all earlier references to “foreign barbarians” are gone and replaced by waiguo (foreign lands), although this change may have more to do with the simple fact that this history was written or sponsored by the Mongols.
