Abstract

After reopening its doors to the outside world in 1868, at the end of the Edo period, Japan sought to catch up with Europe and the United States. It wanted to be recognized as a “great power.” Then, following the Second World War, Japan focused on becoming an economic power. More recently, aided by international recognition of its popular culture, it has focused on the role of culture in weaving its international relations, exploring ways of becoming an attractive power.
