Abstract: China’s Confucian culture has a long history, which has not only influenced the development process of the entire Chinese history, but also spread to East Asian countries, forming an East Asian Confucian cultural circle. In Japan, Confucianism has been widely studied and applied, and has been integrated into the native Japanese culture, and also became part of the Japanese national culture. Studying the spread of Confucianism in ancient Japan is helpful to understand the role of Confucianism in the formation of Japanese national character. At the same time, it can also learn from Japan's choice and transformation of Confucianism and think about how to adapt the traditional Confucianism to the development of modern Chinese society. This topic starts with the spread and development of Confucianism in Japan from the Yamato period to the Heian period, the Kamakura and Muromachi period, and the Edo period. Through multiple perspectives, it also studies the development and changes of Confucianism in the Japanese society.
