Japans extraordinary culture is like no other in the world, and it remains mysterious to many of us. And thats unfortunate, because to truly understand Japans influence on the world stage, one needs to understand Japans culture - on its own terms.

In an exciting partnership with the Smithsonian, The Great Courses presents these 24 lectures that offer an unforgettable tour of Japanese life and culture. Professor Ravina, with the expert collaboration of the Smithsonians historians, brings you a grand portrait of Japan.

From the dawn of Confucianism and the Meiji Restoration to World War II and the economic miracle years of 1955 to 1975, youll explore landmark periods of Japanese history and learn how broad events and movements introduced, innovated, and revised everything from spirituality to popular entertainment. Along the way youll get revealing insights into Shinto (Japans indigenous religion), the art of Katsushika Hokusai, literary works like The Tale of Genji and the haiku of Basho, the everyday lives of samurai, the universal appeal of filmmakers like Akira Kurosawa, foods like yakitori and tempura, and so much more.

Youll come away from Professor Ravinas final lecture with a stronger sense of the very soul of this one-of-a-kind nation.
