    the first Japanese

    In america before the european settlers arrived there were the Native Americans such as Cherokee and Navajo. In mexico there were the olmec. Now my question is who were the first Japanese? Did they hunt with spears and arrows like the american indians? What were they like? Are there any left?

    I think they came from China and they made their own written language based on the chinese charecter system and just made their own culture. I think.

    Re: the first Japanese

    The Japanese are widely believed to be the descendants of the Jomon Era peoples who migrated from southeast asia to the present-day islands of Japan when glaciation in 40,000 BCE connected the islands to the mainland. As geography changed, nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes swept across the primieval landscapes from the Korean penninsula and also what is now China, henceforth the Japanese will often claim lineage to the early settlers of Korea and China as well. These early paleolithic tribes would become the Yayoi and the Ainu. The Ainu settled in Hokkaido, and are the tribe from which the Emishi spawned, the people to which Ashitaka belongs in Hayao Miyazaki's Mononoke Hime.


    Early Japanese People


    Studio Ghibli's interpretation of an Emishi hunter (Ashitaka).

    Like the native Americans (another theory is that the Native Americans are in fact also related somehow to the Jomon who may have crossed the land bridge and settled in America when it land bridge was not under the ocean), the early Japanese were presumably small, mobile hunter-gatherer societies. Eventually they began to make a cultural presence when they stayed in one area long enough to make the world's first known examples of pottery in the 14th millenium BC. By 1000 BC, the Japanese had already established a primitive rice-harvesting culture throughout a significant spread of Japan.

    Hope that helped,

    ~Shigure
