It is considered that the name “land of the Rising Sun” was given to Japan by the Chinese, because for them the Sun rises exactly from Japan. And before that, the Chinese called Japan the whale. 倭 or “VA”. Apparently, a grudge against such a nickname, the Japanese took revenge on the Chinese during the Second World War, cutting a few cities, swarm swarming with Chinese. Generally all fans of kawaii nasechek would not hurt to know that traditionally, Japan was a predatory militaristic government, for many years, worn with the idea of world domination and the gut vypushena peoples who do not agree with this plan. Actually, it was the rapacity and militarism and in the end led to nuclear Fox, burnt down hundreds of thousands of Japs by the grace of Pindos in the glorious fortieth. That is, quite rightly so.
The medieval period the country consisted of the samurai. ninja. shoguns and other harakiri, as well as European — knight. the Inquisition and other things, except that for obvious reasons, the Japanese did not ever feel on their skin the dark ages.
