User: why did japan isolate?

Weegy: Japan went into isolation due to an increasingly dangerous European threat. Many Europeans in Japan, specifically Spanish and Portuguese Catholics, attempted to convert the populace in an effort to "save" them. [ Many Japanese Christians became zealous in their beliefs, threatening the careful order established by the feudal system and led by the shogunate. The Dutch and English were also there bringing their guns and weaponry with them and though Ieyasu would also use them to fight rival lords, he was afraid of rivals gaining exclusive access to advanced European weaponry. Japan also saw the example of China, which had basically become a servant to European desires; isolation was seen as a way of ridding Japan of what could become a serious problem Japan didn't want spheres of influence to destroy their country like China.
