If you were there… “You live in a small farming village on one of the islands of Japan. You’re very happy with your life. The sea is nearby and food is plentiful. You have a large, extended family to protect and take care of you. Your grandmother says that life in your village has not changed for hundreds of years, and that is good. But now you have heard that some people from across the sea are coming to your village. They are bringing new ideas and ways of doing things. Explain how you would feel about these possible changes."
