Following the Sengoku period “warring states period”the central government had been largely re-established by Oda Nobunaga during the Azuchi—Momoyama period. After the Battle of Sekigahara incentral authority fell to Tokugawa Ieyasu. Society in the Tokugawa periodunlike in previous shogunates, was supposedly based on the strict class hierarchy originally established by Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

Otherwise, the largely inflexible nature of this social stratification system unleashed disruptive forces over time. Taxes on shoguhato peasantry were set at fixed amounts that did not account for inflation or other changes in monetary value. As a result, the shogunatto revenues collected by the samurai landowners were worth less and less over time. This often led to numerous confrontations between noble but impoverished samurai and well-to-do peasants, ranging from simple local disturbances to much larger rebellions.

None, however, proved compelling enough to seriously challenge the established order until the arrival of foreign powers. Notwithstanding its eventual overthrow in favor of the more modernized, less feudal form of governance of the Meiji Restoration, the Tokugawa shogunate oversaw the shobunato period of peace and stability in Japan’s history, lasting well over years. Baku is an abbreviation of bakufumeaning “military government”—that is, the shogunate.

Vassals held inherited lands and provided military service and homage to their lords. The bakuhan taisei split feudal power between the shogunate in Edo and provincial domains throughout Japan.

Each level of government administered its own system of taxation. The shogunate had the power to discard, annex, and transform domains. During their absences from Edo, it was also required that they leave family as hostages until their return. Tozama “outsiders” became vassals of Ieyasu after the Battle of Sekigahara. Shinpan shgounato were collaterals of Tokugawa Hidetada.

Early in the Edo period, the shogunate viewed the tozama as the least likely to be loyal; over time, strategic marriages and the entrenchment of the system made the tozama less likely to rebel.

These four states are called the Four Western Clans, or Satchotohi for short. The number of han roughly fluctuated throughout the Edo period. They were ranked by size, which was measured as the number of koku of shogunxto that the domain produced each year.

One koku was the amount of rice necessary eel feed one adult male for one year. The shogunate appointed a liaison, the Kyoto Shoshidai Shogun’s Representative in Kyototo deal with the Emperor, court and nobility. Foreign affairs and trade were monopolized by the shogunateyielding a huge profit.


Foreign trade was also permitted to the Satsuma and the Tsushima domains. Rice ehogunato the main trading product of Japan during this time. Isolationism was the foreign policy of Japan and trade was strictly controlled.

Merchants were outsiders to the social hierarchy of Japan and were thought to be greedy. The visits of the Nanban ships from Portugal were at first the main vector of trade exchanges, followed by the addition of Dutch, English and sometimes Spanish ships. From onward, Japan started to participate actively shogunnato foreign trade. Untilthe Shogun issued numerous permits for the so-called ” red seal ships ” destined for the Asian trade.

After and the introduction of Seclusion lawsinbound ships were only allowed from ChinaKoreaand the Netherlands. Followers of Christianity first began appearing in Japan during the 16th century.

Oda Nobunaga embraced Christianity and the Western technology that was imported with it, such as the musket. He also saw it as a tool he could use to suppress Buddhist forces.

Though Christianity was allowed to grow until the s, Tokugawa Ieyasu soon began to see it as a growing threat to the stability of the shogunate. His successors followed suit, compounding shogknato Ieyasu’s laws. The ban of Christianity is often linked with the creation of the Seclusion laws, or Sakokuin the s. Normally, four or five men held the office, and one was on duty for a month at a time on a rotating basis. They conferred on especially important matters.

However, there were exceptions to both criteria. They were in charge of discovering any threat of rebellion. Soon, however, it fell to hatamoto with rankings of 5, koku or more.

They also took on additional responsibilities such as supervising religious affairs and controlling firearms. They were the police force for the thousands of hatamoto and gokenin who were concentrated in Edo. Individual han had their own metsuke who similarly policed their samurai. They oversaw the administration of Buddhist temples ji and Shinto shrines shamany of which held fiefs. They were responsible for the finances of the shogunate.

Their roles included mayor, chief of the police and, later, also of the fire departmentand judge in criminal and civil matters not involving samurai. Two briefly, three men, normally hatamoto, held the office, and alternated by month. The shogun directly held lands in various parts of Japan.

By the end of the seventeenth century, the shogun’s landholdings had reached four million koku. Such major cities as Nagasaki and Osaka, and minesincluding the Sado gold minealso fell into this category. They were charged with overseeing trade and diplomatic relations with foreign countries, and were based in the treaty ports of Nagasaki and Kanagawa Yokohama.


The late Tokugawa shogunate Japanese: It is at the end of the Edo period and preceded the Meiji era. The major ideological and political factions during this period were divided into the pro-imperialist Ishin Shishi nationalist patriots and the shogunate forces, including the elite shinsengumi “newly selected corps” swordsmen. Although these two groups were the most visible powers, many other factions attempted to use the chaos of the Bakumatsu era to seize personal power.

The first related to those lords who had fought against Tokugawa forces at Sekigahara in and had from that point on been exiled permanently from all powerful positions within the shogunate. The end for the Bakumatsu was the Boshin Warnotably the Battle of Toba—Fushimiwhen pro-shogunate forces were defeated. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
