Japanese Feudalism

  Japan developed a feudal system which had similarities to the European system. 
  • The shogun (like the king) ruled the country through the daimyo (like the nobles), who were the heads of the samurai (like the knights). 
  • Peasants farmed the land in exchange for protection by the samurai, who operated under a code of conduct known as bushido (like chivalry). 

Again, society was organized under a rigid class system with no social mobility.  Click the button for a chart.

The Tokugawa Shoguns maintained an ethnocentric policy toward the outside world.  However, cultural influences from China did migrate to Japan down the Korean Peninsula.
