Bridging Worlds: The Iwakura Mission and Recasting Japan’s Position on the Global Stage Speaker: Christina Yamanaka, MSJC History Professor

After centuries of self-imposed isolation, leaders of the Japanese govern-

ment embarked on a mission to the Western world in 1871 in search of new po- litical and cultural models that would help galvanize the industrial and modern transformation of their country. These government travelers, inspired by their


years abroad, will enact policies to further distance Japan from its feudal heritage, provoking a samurai rebellion, a restructuring of social institutions, and a ques- tioning of Japanese identity in the wake of Western influence. This comprehensive and often painful transformation that Iwakura Mission travelers helped orchestrate, will ultimately lead to Japan ascending the world’s stage and becoming a global powerhouse by the beginning of the twentieth century.
