During the post classical period, 650 C.E to 1450 C.E, Japanese leaders were confronted with several issues that threatened political order in Japan.

Another problem included the division between classes in the social structure, one instance was when the lady-in-waiting in the temple showed disdain for the peasants in a lower class than her. Ultimately, one last problem was the lack of overall respect for the government. Samurais were not being properly trained and the Daimyo were fighting among themselves simply for power. The issues that presented themselves during this time period can be solved in many ways.

During the late 18th century to the early 20th century, east Asia had been imperialized by western powers. Imperialism in east Asia during the period 1750-1945 was beneficial because of the economic growth, technological advancements, and political structure that progressed positively as a result of western imperialism.
