Japan drew the US into WW 2 when they launched an unprovoked attack upon our Pacific Fleet while at peace, Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941. Japan launched the attack because of many reasons, one of which was an oil embargo placed upon her by the US & Gr. Britain. The oil embargo was placed by the US & Gr. Britain because of Japan's aggression in the Far East, esp. in Manchuria & China. Japan wished to create the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere," an excuse to exploit Asians & reap all of Asia's natural resources for Japan's our desires. No, the US dd not do a thing to provoke an attack by the Empire of Japan, so say the 1,103 sailors that died Dec. 7 aboard the USS Arizona.

Trade with Europe began in 1543 after the Portuguese arrived in the country. Several events led to the closing off of trade by 1650 during the Edo period. First of all, th…e slave trade led to large numbers of Japanese people being sold into slavery and traded throughout Europe. Second, Catholic missionaries began widespread conversions to Christianity, and the Jesuits moved some Christian activity underground, resulting in the 'Hidden Christians.'
WWII began between the US and Japan with the surprise attack on the US Fleet at Pearl Harbor.

August 14, 1945 five days after the Nagasaki atomic bombing.
On December 7, 1941 east of the International Date Line (Hawaii, North America, Europe & Africa) or on December 8, 1941 west of the Dateline (Australia, New Zealand, Singapore…, Burma, Dutch East Indies, Philippines, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Guam, Wake Island, etc.). Japan attacked the United States at Hawaii on December 7, 1941 starting at 0748 hours (local time) at Kaneohe Air Station. The attack at Pearl Harbor, Ford Island, Hickam Field & Wheeler Field began at about 0755 hours (local time). Back on this day, when it was 7:55am at Pearl Harbor; it was 1:25pm in Washington, DC; 6:25pm in London; and it was 3:25am on December 8, 1941 in Tokyo, Japan. The Japanese declared war about 7 1/2 hours after the attack on Hawaii began. The United States declared war on Japan on December 8, 1941 (US time). US President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivers the famous "…a date which will live in Infamy…" speech to a Joint Session of Congress at 12:30 pm (slightly less than 24 hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor began). Within an hour of the speech, the US Congress passed a formal declaration of war against Japan. The US Senate votes 82-0; the US House of Representatives votes 388-1. Montana Congresswoman Jeannette Rankin was the 'no' vote. The Joint Resolution was approved by Congress at 4:10 pm on December 8th.
