Japan as a Maritime Nation
Getting to Know Japan Webinar (via Zoom) -- Thursday, May 11, 2023 at 1900 (JST)
Japan is a quiet maritime power. It is an archipelagic nation that controls a large shipping fleet and maintains one of the world’s most powerful naval forces. Tokyo was recently ranked as the world’s 5th most important global maritime city, despite having a port that is dwarfed by those elsewhere in Asia. Yet, dichotomies exist in that much of Japan’s culture is relatively inward-looking and focused on terra firma elements such as mountains and agricultural elements. John Bradford will provide an overview of Japan’s weight as a maritime state focusing on a historical narrative from 1945 to the present.
