Cultures Of East Asia

Korea borrowed from both Chinese and Indian culture. Japan borrowed from Korea, which was also an indirect borrowing of Indian and Chinese cultures. This is why Korea is known as a "cultural bridge". Korea and Japan didn't just steal ideas, they adapted them and expanded upon them so they could accomadate their own cultures. This lead to the civilizations flowering.

How did these Indian and Chinese cultures spread and diffuse, you ask? Through trade, conquest, migration, and religious missionaries. The ideas that were spread inculde Hinduism, Islam, and Buddhism, the style in which temples were built, ideas about government, political ideas, science, and art, and Sanskrit writing.

China's golden age started in the AD 500s as a result of a chain of dynasties successfully reuniting the kingdom. China's advanced civilization had a HUGE impact on east Asian and southeast Asian cultures.
