The yayoi period was 300 BC-300 AD. With the introduction of agriculture, social classes started to evolve. Parts of the country began to unite under powerful land owners. Then china travelers reported that the queen called himiko (or pimiku) rained over Japan.
The yayoi period helped many modern ideas evolve. The kofun period was 300-538. A center of power had developed in the fertile kinai plan. About 400 AD the country had united as yamato Japan. The country did not include kanto, tohoku, and Hokkaido. Soon the soga clan had political power. In the 11th century the military class took place.
There once was a man who lied in the palace of the shogun. He had a very relaxing and peaceful life. One day Kato sayemon passed his wifes room and saw her playing with one of his concubines. Then he saw their hair twist into forms of snakes from bitter jealousy. Kato did not want that to happen to him, so he went to become a Buddhist priest, for the goal of Buddha is to overcome attachment to things in this world. So Kato Sayemon ran away and became a Buddhist priest at a temple. The wife became very worried. For two years messengers looked and looked and there was never any sign of her husband. So the wife took her son and went to look for her husband.They looked for many long years and never found a trace of him. One day they came to a temple. A priest opened the door. "Sir, I am looking for my father, who I have not seen for many years. Have you seen him? His name is Kato Sayemon and he has a birth mark under his eye like mine.""No.I have not seen him. Go now." The man lowered his eyes quickly,but the son had seen it. A birth mark exactly like his own under his eye. "You are my father!" he exclaimed. "No. I am not your father. You must go now." "I know you are my father. You can not deny it. But I will not tell mother for I know you wish to stay here and that is what will make you happy. I will go now." "You are a good boy. But I am not your father." The boy smiled. He knew and his father could not change that. And Kato Sayemon watched his son walk away smiling and just for an instant he wanted to go and join him and go back and live in the house of the shogun. But he didn't. He stayed at the temple and the rest of his life was devoted to the practice of Buddha. The wife and son never saw him again, but the son knew where he was.
