Chapter Three with Chapter Four explores the environment of shared cultural space that was created by systematically introducing Western music in Japan. That action situated Japan within global cosmopolitan culture, as explored in Chapter Three. Early institutional connections with German, French, and American musics are reviewed, then motivations of individual Japanese composers for seeking experience in the United States or Europe. Cultural capital thereby accrued is factored in, as seen through Seiji Ozawa, Toru Takemitsu, and others. Types of international connections made by individual composers are elucidated, as are possibilities afforded by international events such as the Takemitsu Composition Award.
