Background: In 1603 , a Tokugawa shogunate (military dictatorship) ushered in a long period of isolation from foreign influence in order to secure its power. For more than two centuries this policy enabled Japan to enjoy stability and a flowering of its indigenous culture. Following the Treaty of Kanagawa with the US in 1854 , Japan opened its ports and began to intensively modernize and industrialize. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries , Japan became a regional power that was able to defeat the forces of both China and Russia. It occupied Korea , Formosa (Taiwan) , and southern Sakhalin Island. In 1931-32 Japan occupied Manchuria , and in 1937 it launched a full-scale invasion of China. Japan attacked US forces in 1941 - triggering America's entry into World War II - and soon occupied much of East and Southeast Asia. After its defeat in World War II , Japan recovered to become an economic power and a staunch ally of the US. While the emperor retains his throne as a symbol of national unity , elected politicians - with heavy input from bureaucrats and business executives - wield actual decisionmaking power. The economy experienced a major slowdown starting in the 1990s following three decades of unprecedented growth , but Japan still remains a major economic power , both in Asia and globally.
