Relation with Japan in the era of Koryŏ was the most stagnant making the least progress in all the areas including politics, economics, diplomacy and military envoy as opposed to before and after the period. The reason for such depressed international relations between the two countries back then was closely related to the circumstances in the Eastern Asia of the time. The international situation of the Eastern Asia in the year 918, in which Koryŏ was established, fell into utter confusion where China experienced internal disorder of five dynasty changes. Moreover, Japan abolished Kyŏndangsa (遣唐使) to Tang dynasty under the reign of Genki (延喜) so that diplomatic relations between Japan and China had already been broken off.
