      That is up to Mikhail to decide. He hasn't provided a definition of
      what he is considering "peace" yet. However, both these periods are
      often represented as "peaceful," perhaps stereotypically and falsely.
      Again, up to him to investigate, it's his theory he wants to prove or

      Geographic isolation doesn't guarantee peace, but tends to reduce the
      risk of invasion from the outside. Which is not to say that the
      Japanese were not perfectly capable of fighting amongst themselves -
      and did.

      YMMV. I'm still learning this stuff myself.
