Every dollar helps! Show me you appreciate the site!
In this section, you'll hopefully learn about Japanese history. I like to think that I'm a decent writer, so hopefully the information in these pages will be accessible.
This will be a great place to start learning Japanese history for anyone just starting out.
The information contained in these pages is not as in depth as it could be. Of course it isn't. If you really wanted an in depth history lesson, you'd go out and buy a history book or seven and then supplement that with the millions of websites already in existence dealing with Japanese history.
This website is essentially me doing that - I'm reading five history books and double checking what they write using the good ol' fashioned internet. Then I'm writing only the fun and interesting stuff that I deem fit to write.
Bibliography of resources used for the basic history (not the "Fun Stuff" or the "Maps")! Hopefully this will prove I'm not making things up!
