The first human habitation in the Japanese archipelago has been traced to prehistoric times. But this documentary does not go that far.

According to legends, Japan was founded in 660BC. However, archeologists agree that settlement in the Japanese archipelago dates back as far as 100,000 years, which was during the Jomon Period. The period is named after the “jomon” or cord-marked pattern style of pottery of the period.

The name Japan is often translated as “the Land of the Rising Sun”. This documentary takes a look at the history of the Japan Empire.

The island of the coast of the Pacific Ocean filled with volcanoes is beautiful, and definitely demands a visit. But until you visit and see its rich history firsthand, enjoy the documentary going through the timeline of the Japanese Empire.
