[edit]

The text on this page was lifted from http://www.karakuri.info/, but nobody seems to care. wikipedia is more about deleting entries for webcomics than avoiding copyright infringement lately!

Yes, but he didn't invent Karakuri, did he? Haven't you see the references down on the page? What about his little "No copyright infringement is intended or contained on this site. Every effort has been made to identify and credit the original source of all content, but mistakes are inevitable"? So if he can, why wouldn't Wikipedia?

[edit]

This page should be a little more focused on actually describing what karakuri are/were, and what their uses were. Also, it is questionable whether karakuri actually played much role in Japan's defeat of Russia and subsequent imperial hegemony in East Asia.

[edit]

I think this page should be edited, from "Thus, centuries before" to "20th century" it's off topic and biased.

[edit]

It is true that karakuri was influenced by Western arts,but not Western automatons. Japanese applied clockwork to Karakuri, though automatons   developed from clockwork in Western separately. And also it seem not to be correct to write that Japan was closed to the rest of the world. Volclex (talk) 10:32, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
