Agricultural land expansion policy and decree nation

The Ritsuryo nation is highly systematicOfficialsIt required stable tax revenues to maintain the organization.On the other hand, the law on the collection of paddy fields stipulated in the Japanese Ritsuryo did not have a clear provision regarding the treatment of cultivated rice fields.[2]. for that reason,Nagaya KingThe imperial court centered on722 (6 years old)Ryoda Million Town Ayumu Clearing PlanAnd to carry out the plan723 Promote paddy field reclamation in (7th year of Yoro)Third-generation one-body method(Sanze Isshin) was enforced.This law is newIrrigation facilityThose who made and cultivated the pond were allowed to own the pond during the three generations, and those who used the original pond groove were allowed to own the pond only for the first generation.

According to the "Apocalypse of the Heijo Relocation", the new city is "Immediately, Heijonochi, Four Birds Kanozu ..."Suitable for the four godsLand of the land "was chosen.Kyo FujiwaraIs located on a terrain that slopes from south to north,Fujiwara shrineIt was sometimes considered that the point where there was a place was lower than the place where the group vassals lived and was overlooked by the vassals, and as a matter of fact, the drainage was poor.However, not only that, Fujiwara-kyo was built at a time when the exchange with Tang was cut off, so it was an old book (""Zhou LiIt is thought that the design was based on ()), which was unprecedented compared to the Chinese capital castle at that time.Actually, I returned to Japan for the first time in more than 30 yearsEnvoy OfMasato AwataHowever, these problems became clear in addition to the morning affairs, and the culture, national power, and capital of the Tang dynasty.Chang'anIt is thought that reporting the greatness and prosperity of Fujiwara-kyo became aware that the difference between Fujiwara-kyo and Chang'an was far apart, and was a factor in deciding the transfer of capital.[3]..At the root of this, building a magnificent city is nothing more than showing the emperor's virtues to foreign envoys, remote people such as Ezo and Hayato, as well as local gentry and people. It was nothing but the one that aimed at the small "Chinese Empire" of Dongyi while establishing the rule.[4].. In September, Empress Genmei himself inspected the land of Heijo and appointed 9 secretaries, and in October.Ise ShrineToMessengerDispatched to announce the construction of a new city, and in November, to a private house to be relocated for the planned site of Heijo Palace穀物, Cloth provided, in DecemberGround breaking ceremonyAnd started construction work.

The construction work of Heijokyo was carried out in a very short period of time.In March of the 1rd year of Wado (4), one year and four months after the start of construction, the capital was relocated to Heijo, but it was possible to relocate at such a rapid pace, including temples. This is because many of the buildings were relocated from Fujiwarakyo.According to recent knowledge, the scale of the new capital Heijokyo is almost the same as that of the old capital Fujiwarakyo, but rather Fujiwarakyo is wider.[5]It was only about a quarter of that of Chang'an Castle.The characteristic of Heijokyo is "Foreign capitalIt is not a perfect rectangle because of the overhanging part from Sakyo.

Dongyi's small empire

Among them, in Japan's Ritsuryo national system, the emperor is on a par with the Chinese emperor, and like Tang, JapanChineseIt had an empire structure.It distinguishes the range covered by the sovereignty of the nation from "inside" and the outside beyond it from "outside", further dividing the outside into "neighboring countries" and Korean countries (in this era, Silla). Balhae) should have been called "Various Buddhas", and Ezo, Hayato, and South Islanders should have been called "Small Empire of Dongyi", which defines them as "Tang Dynasty".[7][8]..It is another matter whether or not the pride or aim of it after the stipulation in the decree was accompanied by the actual situation, especially in relations with Tang and Korean countries.

Battle of Shiramura RiverLaterKorean PeninsulaUnifiedSillaMany envoys came and went with.However, Japan in the late 7th and 8th centuries raised awareness of China in the process of establishing a decree system (Tang is the "neighboring country" and Silla / Bohai is the "client state"), and Silla was designated as the "client state". Conflicts occurred frequently because they tried to position it and treat it as a subordinate country (Encho Tamura).As a result, the route of the envoy to Tang has been changed several times.Silla is at war with Tang over the unification of the peninsula, in order to restrain Tang so that Japan behind it does not reach the Tang side.[10]I kept sending envoys.Because it was in a situation of engaging with Tang8st centuryUntil the beginning, the Japanese side accepted the tribute form.[11]However, Silla, whose relationship with Tang improved after the establishment of Balhae, began to insist on equal diplomacy because it was no longer necessary to maintain relations with Japan until he made a tribute.Japan did not admit this.When the worsening relations between the two countries materialized, Silla built a castle in preparation for the invasion of Japan.723 , Hair-cutting county castle).To temporarily strengthen the armament in JapanModeratorWas placed[12].737 The conquest of Shinra was discussed.In Japan at this timesmallpoxWas a pandemic and was a central figure in politicsFujiwara Takechi MaroIncludingFujiwara four brothers, High-ranking aristocrats died one after another, the number of human resources who can do politics decreased sharply, and the country became confused, so it did not become a reality. 755 ,Anshi no RanWhen the turmoil occurs in Tang, the relationship with Bohai, which poses a threat to Silla, is strengthened.[13]Against this background, Fujiwara no Nakamaro is preparing a war to conquer Silla (although it was premised on a joint operation with Balhae, the war was postponed because it was rejected by the Balhae side, and eventually Nakamaro It was not realized due to the fall of Maro).Although the conflict did not occur in this way, Silla, who no longer needed to maintain diplomatic relations at the request of the Japanese side, stopped dispatching envoys and was finally cut off in 779.

The above theory has been disputed.In response to the request from the Japanese side to send the national book in the above table format, Silla never sent the national book of King Silla until the end of diplomatic relations.While Silla was under Tang pressure, the "Silla Envoy" tolerated the form of tribute to Japan, but after the middle of the XNUMXth century it began to reject Japan's request for tribute.It is doubtful that King Silla had never sent a national book to Japan, and that Silla had approved Japan's tribute system in the first place, and Silla's envoy may have cheated on the spot (Toshikazu Hori).Also,Yoshiaki KawamotoSilla says that the above theory has certain problems, considering its Chinese consciousness, such as the fact that Silla built a building that is only allowed by the Chinese emperor more than 100 years earlier than Japan.On the other hand, Silla is focusing on private trade, and the exchange with Japan is larger than that of Tang, and the current situation isShosoinIt is said that many of the treasures in the Tang and Southern regions of the Touya are mediated by Silla merchants.[14].. At the end of the 8th centuryEnvoyAlthough the official dispatch of Silla has ceased, the activities of Silla merchants are rather active.


713 ,MorayOld with the tribe as the main bodyGoguryeoFounded in northeastern China with people (Koma)BohaiThere was a close exchange of envoys with.Bohai is against Tang and Silla727 In Japan (4th year of Kamikame)Bohai ambassadorDispatched and asked for diplomatic relations.Due to the crisis situation inside and outside the country, such as the rebellion of Heishui Mohe under the control of Tang and Silla, he compromised with Japan seeking a tribute form as a successor to Goguryeo, and allowed him to become a tribute envoy. ..In the national books from Balhae, the number of words that correspond to Japan's Chinese consciousness increased and decreased in proportion to and inversely proportional to the crisis situation in Balhae.The Japanese side welcomed the tribute to Balhae as the return of Goguryeo, the "country of paradise".[15], From the rivalry with Silla, attach great importance to communication with Bohai,Sea ambassadorWas dispatched.Like Silla, Japan requested Bohai to send a national book in the form of a vassal and the above table (in the form of a vassal and a document dedicated to the monarch).Unlike Silla, Bohai sent the national book to Japan, but the format was "Kei."[16]Balhae is the first in Asia to use "Kei", which is used for communication between individuals, in official documents between nations.Kei is not a form used for national books, but a letter that asks about the residence of individuals, so it fits the general purpose of national books, and since it is originally an ascending document, it should be polite toward the other country. Will be shown.It is believed that it was the wisdom of Balhae that diverted such personal correspondence into national books.The Japanese side, which demands the "ministerial title / upper table" format, often criticized this, but Bohai consistently refused to send the national book in the "minor title / upper table" format.In the end, the Japanese side also acknowledged Kei as a "custom".Exceptionally, there is an article in the Shoku Nihongi that Bohai sent a national book in the above table format, but the articles are concentrated only in the Houki year, and it is thought that the enlightenment from Bohai was regarded as the above table. There is.

As relations with the Tang dynasty improved, the military role of Balhae missions to Japan declined, the weight of trade became heavier, and the frequency of visits to Japan increased.It was completely altered in the early Heian period. Minister of the Right in 824Fujiwara no OtsuguSaid, "Because the Bohai mission is a merchant, do not treat it as a diplomatic mission in the future."[17]..On the other hand, the national book sent from Japan to Bohai is in the form of a memorial service from the emperor, but the writing is consistently "King of the Emperor Balhae" or "King of the Emperor Balhae" as for Silla.
