Japan in a Fresh Nutshell

Who are the Japanese? Where did they come from? What are the origins of this unique people?

During the eighth century a scribe named Yasumaro compiled--at the behest of the Empress--the oldest traditions that had survived. He produced two books: the Kojiki("Records of Ancient Matters") and the Nihongi("Chronicles of Japan"). These provide information about the earliest days of the nation, and about its cosmological origins.
