When a local daimyo of Otomo clan chose Christianity by influence of Francis Xavier,all neighbouring clans shunned transactions and Trade with them immediately

Actually the Japanese thought Christianity as a Indian religion bcz Francis went to Japan from goa,he used some tactics
-like inculturation and won their trust

But later they recognised that it was a unnatural religion unlike Indian one's and it's incompatible with their honour and Social structure built upon discipline and started to get suspicious about it-
The then ruler 'Oda nobunanga' ignored it because he was busy in the war for Shogunate

The later Supremo 'Hideyoshi toyotomi' and the victor in Shogun war(sengoku jidai) 'Tokugawa ieyasu' inquired about it and came to a conclusion that this Xtianity is a pest and ordered -
Severe repercussions against anyone practicing Christianity they also burnt many preachers alive to set an example and succeeded in completely eliminating the pest before it got contagious and destroyed their civilization.
The Japanese followed extremely rigid Social Hierarchy and has everything codified right from birth to death

Honor was given the highest place above life itself and failure in compliance of orders was punished with Ritual suicide called 'seppuku' in public.
The Social Change you see today is because during Meiji restoration the emperor seized power from 'Shogunate' and radically implemented European style education and military tradition replacing old one's

There was resistance from Traditionalists but they lost the war with -
Emperor because emperor allied with europeans and he deployed canons/artillery and Guns and Japanese Trads had Katanas and arrows

Please Google Satsuma rebellion in this regard.

Even though after Meiji restoration Japan never set aside their discipline and respect towards Honor
