Japan felt humiliated when the U.S. cut-off all of its resources in the states. The U.S. was one of Japan’s biggest providers of oil. Almost 80% of their oil came from the U.S.(Doc D) Due to the Japanese advances in China and the U.S.’s want to stay out of the war, the United States thought it would be best to do an embargo of Japan.(Doc C). Japan does not produce
Thesis: Japan has reasons why they chose to attack the United States; the attack on Pearl Harbor impacts Japanese Americans in the United States and the United States economy.
The relationship between Japan and the United States prior to World War II is outlined in the beginning of the chapter. Iokibe states that their relationship went through three stages, the first being fifty years of “friendship,” the second was twenty-five years of going back and forth between conflict and cooperation, and finally ten years of aggression resulting in the attack on Pearl Harbor (91). The next portion of the chapter discusses the two sides of the U.S. Occupation, being both lenient and severe. The United States occupied Japan for several years after its defeat and subjected the country to reforms that had an impact on every part of their society. However, cooperation on both sides gave way for a more lenient United States. The simply wanted to ensure that Japan would not become a threat to the security of the U.S. again, and to do so they implemented demilitarization and democratization. The Japanese, with little resistance, accepted and welcomed
Yet the situations of Japanese Americans in 1941 and Arab Americans in 2001 are different in hopeful ways. The oppression of Japanese Americans came from more than just military fears and racial hatred. Its main engine was economic. The historical record is clear that the most effective advocates for evicting the West Coast's Japanese Americans were their white business competitors, especially in agriculture. The attack on Pearl Harbor presented white farmers with a chance to cap off a program of economic nativism that had been in place for years.
This research project is a detailing of Japan’s history and its relations with the U.S. The document is intended to explain the rising conflict between them during The Second Sino-Japanese War, U.S retaliation due to the attempted conquest of Asia and the Attack on Pearl Harbor, and subsequent economical and environmental complications. In terms of value, the majority of the document is relevant to my research and
American troops invaded many countries and remain with them for a very long time, but nothing quite like the history between America and Japan. America’s presence in Japan has shown to have had grave effects on the country from past to present. The intent of this paper is to discuss how America has altered the Japanese way of life through the incorporation of its military, politics, and culture.

My topic for my NHD project is the opening of Japan’s borders in 1858 and how it affected Japanese culture. The West influenced Japanese art, government, fashion, food, architecture, and culture.
I really enjoyed reading your introduction on Japan and the many reasons you have chosen to Japan as you country to conduct your research on. Japan has been an ally of the United States for several decades now. Japan also, holds absolute advantage in internet research imported from the United States. The major elements and dimensions of culture in this region from your post is fairly on point. According to Satterlee (2014) the dimensions of culture are categorized as communication, religion, ethics, values, and attitudes, manners, customs, social structure, and organizations and education (p.43). Addressing Japan’s agricultural and fishery exports fared well with question one. Also, how are these elements and dimensions integrated by locals conducting business in the nation? According to Satterlee (2014) the concept of time and dealing with change sue to cultural attitudes differing in the approach to change (p.55). Is a great source to start your inquiry on the integration of locals conducting business. The third question we were assigned mentioned how do both of the above items compare with U.S. culture and business? Your answer was very good, mentioning Japan’s economy has a 1% growth increase in the past three months is interesting to say the least. A great reference here business implications and Here are key questions Japanese corporations need to address to gain and sustain the competitive
This paper will explain the two most significant impacts that the aggressive Empire of Japan history affects its connections with its neighbours. History has caused the reconciliation process between the countries to be delayed and continues frictions between them to occur.
Culture is a significant theme in this film. One important factor to point out is throughout Stevenson’s trip in Japan, he is hit with culture shock and the same can be said for the Japanese executives. Stevenson mocks how the Japanese exchange business cards during the presentation, how they eat with chopsticks and how rigid and structured Japanese culture is. This culture clash not only affected the characters’ personal lives, but also impacted the business. “Research has clearly established that culture affects the application of management theories and practices. Work values, in particular, are an important part of cross-cultural understanding in that they are themselves measures of cultural dimensions, and also have strong implications for many areas of management, from employee motivation to organizational communication” (Matić, 2008). Almost immediately after opening up the doors to the plant, there were problems. The Japanese people had a very strict and rigid way of running their businesses and doing their work as compared to the lackadaisical American work ethic. The plant workers are expected to perform calisthenics in the morning, are denied basic privileges like sick leave, paid overtime and a union. The town and these workers are in such a desperate situation that they decide to withstand the abuse and impossible demands set by the Japanese plant owners. It is difficult enough to manage a business with workers and executives that have a common culture and

For example, if your shift is at 9 A.M. you are expected to be dressed, clocked in, and at your desk before that time (Nozu). Also, in every situation you find yourself in, you should be aware of how people are perceiving you, as this is extremely important to the Japanese. It is very common for the Japanese to go out after work to bars, karaoke 's, or restaurants. If you are invited you should make an effort to go, as good relationships with those whom you work with are important. The well being of the group is always placed above the individual in their culture. If a Japanese business is not doing well the CEO would cut his own pay so that it could be fairly distributed to his employees. Things like this, that we may not see in Western business practices, are all part of the unified country of Japan.
