      Britain has had massive amounts of extensive contacts with continental Europe in a way that Japan apparently hasn't had with the nearby parts of continental Asia.
      Britain has never had centuries where it has had very limited influence from it's neighbours in the way that Japan seems to have done that would have created something as unique as Japan's culture.
      I don't know much about Japanese history compared to British history though so I could be way off.

      You're pretty correct, Japan is isolated and has never had to seriously engage with Asian politics and was never militarily threatened by them. If the Jap emperor wanted to send mail to the emperors of China and Korea telling them they're homosexuals and he fricked their moms then nothing would happen

          The truth is the Japs don't have to give a frick what China says or thinks because no one has the naval capabilities to invade Japan. They traded and that's it.

          They adopted every single aspect of Chinese culture and society wholesale. This thread isn't about who they were ruled by, it's about unique civilization, which (if Japan ever had) was thoroughly destroyed by the Meiji government who turned what little remained of their folk beliefs into an imperial cult around the government.

            No they didn't. Japanese culture has very little resemblance to Chinese culture in any way. Two big iconic parts of Chinese historical culture, legalism and meritocracy, are completely absent from Japan. Japan resembles India or even Europe more than it does China, by far.

            Option 3, I am correct and elites displaying Sinoboo tendencies at any given point in time is not necessarily a civilisation-redefining event. It is very easily observable, and obviously apparent, that Japanese culture historically differs drastically from that of China, and their politics have essentially no similarities what so ever. You are entirely mistaken in interpreting this as some kind of "defense" of Japan as China is plainly the more civilised nation.

            >collectivist rice farming civilization with huge emphasis on honor and ancestor worship
            Would you not say that the emphasis on honor greatly exceeds that of other Asian nations, and ancestor worship is rather weaker? Japanese ancestor worship does not seem nearly as strong as that of China. There seems to be a greater focus on common deities.

            East Asian honor is based on more duty and saving face. For example, when one fails, it reflects badly on their family or possibly more so they try their hardest to succeed no matter what or try to hide that shame. In the west, more emphasis is placed on the individual, they do what is best for themselves and no one else and they aren't expected to represent their family or group.

            For example this is why Japanese tourists behave extremely well compared to most since any shameful acts would reflect badly on the country as a whole. Westerners don't really care as much when it comes to that so they'll freely make an ass of themselves in other countries like Logan Paul. Ironically though, Chinese tourists are awful so I guess they lost their honor culture.

            These two things are entirely linked.
            Most Japanese folk beliefs revolve around fertility, even moreso than generic pagans, this is because Japan then was an extremely unsafe place to live, the climate is bad, it has more natural disasters than anywhere else in the world, the wildlife is bad (bears, murder hornets, etc), as a result the base of Shinto is pretty much "frick because most of your off-spring will die.", shinto STILL has penis festivals and other weird stuff and this is the post-Meiji sanitized version of Shinto. They used to have a ritual where they would make all teenagers sleep together in the hopes it would become a massive orgy and thus increase birth rates.

        The british isles are in a much better spot to have constant contact with their neighbors.

Japan on the other hand is just kind of sticking out there.

            Seems like some people want to consider Japan to be part of the West because they like Japanese culture, and/or they feel more affinity with it, or at least imagine that they do. I think some people in the West overestimate how similar Japan is to the West.

            Ancient Japan clearly was an offshoot of China but from 1850 on, Japan rapidly Westernized and post-WWII, went straight-up Western.

        I would say they do. Geographically the Norselands were in Europe, which ends at the Urals in Russia. Also the Kattergat (the little sea between Denmark, Norway, and Sweden) is very narrow and traders had already been crossing it for millennia before the vikings started viking. Furthermore there was Norse-led trading leagues which acted as the precursor to the Hanseatic League and they traded as far as Morocco.
        Culturally, the Norse were initially very different from the HRE dominated western Europe, however they quickly adopted western values, technologies, and techniques when it suited them. Vikings worked as merchants and mercenaries for western European powers and took treasures and concepts home as well as loot. It depends on the era as well: the Norse of the Great Heathen Army in 865 were very different from the Norse of Harald Hardrada's Christian army that invaded England in 1066 only 2 centuries later.

    Japan isn't that different from China when you compare it to the rest of the world. Both are very conformist, collectivist, conservative societies. Japan is just more so all those things than China. In the same way that Western societies are generally individualistic yet Britain is more so than France or Germany. That being said it's true Japan didn't have as much contact with mainland Asia and Britain did with the rest of Europe. But most Asian countries have been pretty isolationist throughout their history. China had little interest in invading Japan just as Japan had little interest in colonizing China until the 20th century.

    Really? I consider Japan to just be part of Sinic Civilization 100%. Meanwhile, UK can be considered Western European or Northern European or Western.

        It's true, though. Your little meme countries like Korea and Japan are just Chinese offshoots.

    Little China is a term referring to a politico-cultural ideology and phenomenon in which various Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese monarchs identified themselves as the "Central Kingdom" or "Central State," and regarded themselves to be legitimate successors to the Chinese civilization. Informed by the traditional Chinese concepts of Sinocentrism and Hua–Yi distinction, this belief became more apparent after the Manchu-led Qing dynasty had superseded the Han-led Ming dynasty in China proper, as Tokugawa Japan, Joseon Korea and Nguyễn Vietnam, among others, perceived that "barbarians" had ruined the center of world civilization

    Having been heavily influenced by Chinese culture and political thoughts, numerous Korean, Vietnamese and Japanese monarchs identified themselves with descriptive names that are traditionally associated with and used by China. At the same time, these monarchs considered themselves as legitimate successors to Chinese culture and civilization.

    The Jomon, through the Emishi, were far more influential upon the formation of Japan as a distinct entity from the Late Amur River people relative to the Western Hunter Gatherers and Neolithic Farmers of Britain who were more or less entirely wiped out by the proto-British, leading to the proto-British retaining a much purer strain of continental culture compared to Japan.

    >Why didn't they develop their own unique civilization while Japan did?
    Lol, what the frick are you even talking about. They both did. The fact that you even consider Japan a model of distinctness shows just how historically illiterate you are. There is more in common between China and Japan than Britain and France/Italy for example.
    Japanese Games, Language, Writing, architecture and even food all show a close evolutionary relationship with China.

    No idea where this idea that Japanese culture is somehow “unique” compared to Korea and China, their two closest neighbors they had massive contact with.

    What’s the unique part of Japanese culture that’s so different from Korea and China exactly?

    The biggest changes literally happened after 1850 during the Meiji reformation, and that was Japan trying to copy countries like Britain to modernise

      My answer if I had to answer from my pop culture exposure is that similar to Europeans they had a military-based caste system with nobles having more children than serfs and largely replacing them in a form of downward social mobility (oldest son retaining the estate/realm, extra sons become knights in someone's service, similarly the excess children of knights become skilled tradesmen and marry peasant wives with many peasant men being made into incels unless they were hard working or quality in some way and found a way to support a family).

      I assume Japanese population selection during the middle ages was largely on that basis. That's different from the Chinese who had a largely Darwinian population selection with social advancement being performed through exams with extreme failure rates and entrepreneurial rent seeking in a zero-sum economic system. China has almost always been overpopulated with constant famine and a chronic caloric deficit built into peasant life. A Chinese peasant was only able to reproduce each generation if he was able to through some ingenuity make some surplus money in addition to their harvest, and they often did this through landlording or peddling goods.

      Chinese as a result have a more mercantile character and Japanese have a more noble character. This also explains why Europeans randomly and subconsciously admire Japan and Japanese people.

        Dunno who said it but I remember reading a comment that introducing Communism to China was the worst possible system, as the ancient Chinese had essentially invented Capitalism and today, they've got full-fascist.

        So do native Hawaiians. Having your own voodoo rituals isn't an accomplishment, it's a default setting for tribes.

    we did develop our own unique civilisation, and exported it so far and thoroughly across the world that it was enforced or adopted by other civilisations until it was indistinguishable from many other countries
    at the same time we're a very stubborn nation with a high opinion of ourselves (at least until recently), so we haven't adopted a great deal of foreign ideas
    Japan was also isolationist for almost 400 years, and they became an insular culture with very little interaction with their neighbours. this created a distinct identity for their civilisation.
    the borders of British civilisation are far more blurred, and our historical success was so great that many British innovations were adopted based on their utility rather than international politics, such as the railway (that's cultural appropriation pls give us reparations).

    How did the japs get away with the biggest theft of ip in history, and then also get away with tricking people into thinking it was all 100% original and organic. Even the katana has like 50% of its dna from old chinese and korean swords. This also shows that japanese culture is quite dishonest despite the reputation that they’ve made for themselves through the manufacture of cartoon porn.
