Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast


 

Jun 16, 2012

In this episode we discuss the structure of the Tokugawa government during the Edo period. We examine if Japan was a unified nation-state, a confederacy, or a feudal system, and how much control Daimyo actually had over their own lands. We also look at how individuals may have identified with their region and Japan as a "country".
