Is Japan Part of Asia

However, the divergent opinion on exactly the location of Japan arose in the 19th century as asserted by Ferdinand (2007, p. 655). A Japanese scholar suggested for Japan to break away from the rest of Asia in order to join their more developed imperial powers during that time. This concept historically ‘betrayed’ Japan and hence the origin of different opinions whether Japan is part of Asia. This paper presents a discussion on Japan’s locality, politics, business, education, spiritual life, families, and working aspects of Japan.The political organization of Japan was by a succession of Monarchs just like in many countries of Asia. The common citizen did not own properties or had no human rights but in the name of the ruling family. The status quo of one family would continue unless another powerful family overthrew it (Steiner, Krauss Flanagan, 2014, p. 479). This system of government was common in other Asian countries like China, which had an empiric system of government.Development in the political structure of many nations has been in place over the years. For example, Japan developed a new form of government as a result of its growth in the economy. The new form of government of Japan instead of a monarchy system provided a better way of managing their influx of capital. Their economy continued to grow almost the same rate as most Asian countries an indication that Japan is part of the Asia continent. After the Second World War, most countries surrendered to build a new political system. Japan and other allied countries of Asia adopted a democratic government where the nation is ruled by two houses of the parliament. The system of government, the diet was common in many Asian countries including Japan in the 1940s. The new political system required countries to build their electoral process through which they could select their leaders of choice (Steiner, Krauss Flanagan, 2014). The Japanese Diet system of governance declared that the emperorwas the symbol of the state.
