History of Japan

History of Japan

by

This podcast, assembled by a former PhD student in History at the University of Washington, covers the entire span of Japanese history. Each week we’ll tackle a new topic, ranging from prehistoric Japan to the modern day.

For our final episode in the series, we’re taking a look at the demise of public rail in Japan and the privatization of JNR. What led one of Japan’s biggest companies down the track (ha!) of being broken up, and where does that leave Japan’s rail network today?
