During the time of this shogunate, a social structure developed in Japan (similar to the feudal system in Europe).
These social classes were known as 'shi-no-ko-sho' meaning warrior, peasant, craftsmen, merchant’.
Tokugawa Shogunate was the final period of traditional Japan. A time of internal peace, political stability, and economic growth thanks to Tokugawa Ieyasu.
