Ancient China was greatly famed for her illustrious civilization, and she was the model of the Oriental civilization during thousands of years. Korea and Japan, the two neighbors of China, were deeply influenced by ancient Chinese civilization, from the clothing to the soul. Japanese learned mainly from the Han and Tang Dynasties of China, while Korean learned mainly from the Song and Ming Dynasties of China. So the two nations have many differences. Japanese digested the warrior spirit of the Han and Tang Dynasties, but Korean were immersed in the gentle principles of Confucianism.
