The Confucianism may be considered as an ideology which retains its ideals in the past. This ideology looks for the return of the Golden Age promising the improvement of the present conditions. Political transformations which had caused the blossom of the Meiji Imperial regime to a certain extent denoted a return to the ancient time, whilst the Confucianism even during the Edo period (1603 – 1868) played a part of the state philosophy a kind. Certain scholars accentuate that primarily the Confucianism of the Edo period is in charge of the Japanese modernization, which emphasized the role of the harmony among the employees. Due to the harmony each worker’s productivity has been achieved which ultimately led to the Japanese economy’s growth.
