You may keep some of the sources from your original paper, but only a few—this paper is meant to emphasize Japanese history and culture after 1600 (the Tokugawa period and the Meiji, Taisho, Showa, and Heisei eras. Write a new title, list your new sources, and write a paper on the same general topic of your first paper, but one that is original and fresh.
DO NOT cut and paste items from your original paper. Not only will the exercise fail, but it is much more work than just reinvisioning your subject. This is a new paper on a topic that you have been thinking about all semester. Write that new paper now.
Distinguish between primary sources and secondary sources as you write. Above all, imagine that your audience is like a New York Review of Books audience—there is at least one "expert" reading, but your job is to connect with smart readers who know very little about Japanese history and culture. Make the connections (and don't just write for an audience of one professor).
