By the 700s A.D., Japanese culture and civilization had reached a new height. Their beautiful capital city of Nara rivaled that of China’s capital city. The people of Japan enjoyed one of the highest standards of living anywhere in the world.
In 794 A.D., the leaders in Japan set up a new capital city. They named their new capital Heian Kyo, which would later be shortened to Kyoto. This capital city would remain as the capital of the Japanese Empire for over 1,000 years.
Use what talents you possess. The woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
