This study aims at the cultural relationship in 18th century among East Asian countries, namely Japan, Korea and China. These countries kept trade and exchange of diplomatic missions. Korea sent twice a year diplomatic delegates from Seoul to Peking, and, a mission to Japan to celebrate the inauguration of new Tokugawa, shogun. Some members of these missions kept diaries, which will be regarded as the most detailed reports on the cultural intercouses of this century.
Japan did not have diplomatic relation with China, however Chinese merchants were allowed to reside in Nagasaki and their number amounted to about five thousands in late 16th century. Japan imported silk and books of Chinese classics from Chinese merchants in Nagasaki, and also via Tsushima from Korea. These trade gave a great influence on Japanese culture and there were a boom of Chinese culture among Japanese intellectuals of late 17th and 18th century. The devotion of Japanese people started by the study of Neo-Confucian
ism which, gave the framework of the ideology of Tokugawa shogunate.
The Japanese intellectuals of the 18th century did not abandon the Neo-Confucianistic doctrines, but they are more interested and engaged in the Chinese popular culture and arts. Some Japanese learned colloquial Chinese from Obaku Zen monks who came from south China and lived in Obaku temples in Nagasaki, Kyoto and Edo. Obaku monks taught Japanese new style of calligraphy and ink painting of Ming dynasty. Asai Ryoui translated the popular ghost novel of Early Ming dynasty into Japanese, which acquired great popularity among Japanese readers.
Many travel journals were written by Korean missions to Peking and Edo. Our study kept focus on the three most remarkable travel journals. Two of them deals with the travel to Peking ; 'The travel journal to Peking' by Hong Daeyong, and 'The travel journal to Yolha by Pak Chiwon'. 'Haeyurok' or 'Documents on the sea journey' was written by Sin Yuhan in 1711, when he visited Japan as a secretary of Korean delegade.
These documents tells us how friendly was the intercourse among the intellectuals of the East Asian countries in 18th century. They shared the language in common, namely the classical Chinese. And they spoke in the words based on the same ideology, namely the philosophy of Neo-Confucianism.
The 18th century was very peaceful era for East Asian three countries. The peole had enough time to cultivate friendship with friends abroad and sophisticate the style of there own cultures.
Travel diaries written by Korean intellectuals and the counterpart documents in Japan and China are the best materials to study the cultural relationship among East Asian countries in 18th century. Less
