Thank you! There are so many topics of interest related to industrialization during the Meiji period. There is, indeed, a lack of knowledge regarding the dynamic nature of intellectual currents and nuances of official policies in Tokugawa Japan. I make sure to mention important developments in Tokugawa Japan instead of simply portraying the Meiji Restoration as some radical break with the past. Scholars such as Terence Jackson, Federico Marcon, and Timon Screech cover various aspects of the impact of western scientific information coming into Japan during the Tokugawa period.
