Mathematics and astronomical system of ancient Japan had been influenced by those of ancient Korea since the early 5th century, Ōjin period of Japan. It was also clear that the fundamental languages, especially the numeral and arithmetic terms of both Korea and Japan were based on the common linguistic ancestors. These strongly indicate that both nations possessed the very close way of thinking and the value in mathematics. However, after the 17th century, there was a major difference in their way of thinking of mathematics.
