Japan 200 BCE
The Bronze Age, rice-farming Yayoi culture is spreading throughout Japan.
What is happening in Japan in 200BCE
In Japan, wet-rice cultivation arrived in the island of Kyushu in the middle of the 1st millennium BCE, and since then has spread gradually north and east throughout the island. The new crop had been brought by immigrants from Korea along with a fully-fledged Bronze Age culture, which in Japan is called the Yayoi.
Shortly after the arrival of bronze technology, iron technology also arrived in Japan, only a couple of centuries after its first appearance in Korea. This shows the strong links that now connected the two lands.
