Besides enacting the physical policies that helped in transforming the country, physical resources were committed towards reconstruction and enhancing stability to bring about peace in japan. The underlying factors provided a base for the formation of a new structure that built Japan. These were some of the policies that brought about the normative conditions that led to a reunion within Japan. This re-union led to the formation of confederations and communities that led to withdrawal of Japanese armies from Korea and China bringing about peace in the region (Friday, 269).
The political complexities that were created during the Tokugawa era threatened the union among the Japan citizens. The shogunal control over Samurai and other regions organized campaigns started to re-organize the authorities to cool the prevalent tension and uncertainties. The emergence of Tokugawa politics led to good management of the national resources. This was later complemented by the Meiji restoration that enhanced national and international administrative apparatus that led to the improvement of international relations with European countries like France (Friday, 280).
Internal reconciliation in Japan took pace during the Tokugawa regime. This is because it concentrated in the reconfiguration of relationships between the daimyo and the shogun. Redistribution of lands in Japan was a key factor that was meant to bring domestic unity in Japan. The Intellectual Samurai culture brought stability in the army and new order. This led to providing solutions to international relations and assisted the Chinese and Japanese trade to dominate the Asian community (Friday, 283).
In 1603, Japan managed to solve most of the internal conflicts by forming the Tokugawa shogunate. Some of the areas that experienced dramatic changes include cultural developments, urbanization, and growth of cities. The stability that was experienced at this time led to the development of Japan’s international relations in the markets, and it dominated in most control of the international resources. After this stability, United Kingdom developed strong business ties with Japan among other European countries (Friday, 304).
