The field of Japanese studies delves into the history and culture of both pre-modern and contemporary Japan. It covers a multitude of topics, including social, cultural, and philosophical issues, and matters related to the economy, foreign relations, minorities, fringe groups, literature, cinema, and art in Japan. Understanding the uniqueness and complexity of contemporary Japan requires comprehensive knowledge of Japan's ancient and traditional history and the processes that transformed it from a traditional country into a modern success. It is also crucial to study the moves and shifts that the Japanese regime and society underwent until the end of World War II, and from then onwards.
