Korean Impact on Japanese Culture: Japan's Hidden History
Hollym International Corporation, 1984 - History - 115 pages
"This book takes a different look at Japanese history, questioning many of the conventional assumptions about how Japanese culture arose. Fascinating and well-researched, it compares the sculpture, architecture, painting, ceramics and courtly dress of Japan with Korea in an effort to show how much of what we think of as fundamentally Japanese may have in fact come from Korea. Many of the most treasured cultural heirlooms of Japan, according to this book, actually had their origin in Korea by way of the Korean Paekche Kingdom. Covering what is still an extremely controversial topic in Japan, this book is valuable simply for the questions it raises and the previously overlooked research it unearths."
