Imagine all we had to understand ancient Japan was a map with no manmade features labeled. Explain how the geography (the physical features of the land and water) of East Asia helped shape the emergence and development of civilization in ancient and classical Japan.
Answers must explore social, political, economic, or cultural features (pick one or two aspects on which to focus). The answer must be discussed concretely, using specific evidence to support your argument. Evidence can be from primary sources we used your textbook, or lecture materials and reference at least two of the readings you were assigned.
