We went to a field trip and went to Ueno Zoo and then we went to tokyo national museum and looked at different objects. We were so posed to go to two different buildings the asian and the japanese but the asian building was closed so we could only go to the japanese building. I thought I would see different types of objects and I was correct. Also I was just plainly tired and my leg hurt so I didn’t bother to think about anything so much.
One of the things that I researched is a katana sword. The person that created the katana sword is Masatsune (I think). Masatsune has created the sword in the kama kura period and was obviously created in Japan. Masatsune created the sword because probably for fighting uses and I do not know how Masatsune created the katana.
There are a few interesting facts about the katana like it is one of the sharpest swords in history and I choose to study it because it is a interesting sword. This is very connected to humanities because the sword is from japan and we can compare the katana to a different sword from a different country. I think the katana is a very amazing sword because it is sharp and it is an interesting.
I think the katana has no connections to any non-japanese culture because of what I know there is no katana in any other country and is only in japan. I think that maybe the other people in other countries were not interested in japanese culture in the old days so they did not get some of the japanese culture. Also some other people might not be so interested in japanese culture until a few years before today.
