Storyboard Text

  • Tokugawa Ieyasu came to power after he led the army that defeated the Western Army that was against him. The army was formed by Ishisa Mitsunari. Tokugawa was then given the title of shogun by the Emperor of the time.
  • Tokugawa Ieyasu made laws for society to strengthen the feudal system. These laws included restrictions for drinking parties, reports for any castle repairs, restrictions on the number of horseman riding through the capital and what sort of people should travel in palanquins. Here listed are some of those rules.
  • Tokugawa's Policies 1) One must wholly devote oneself to the Civil and Military arts, and to the Way of the Bow and the Horse 2) Restrictions should be put on drinking parties and on idle, wanton amusements. 6) Any repairs of the castles ... must certainly be reported ... let alone new construction which is strictly forbidden! 8) One must not contract marriages privately ... Marriages intended to effect an alliance with enemies [of the state] will turn out badly.
  • 9) If one is not engaged in official duties, one should not at will assemble one's clansmen. One cannot move through the capital with a retinue of more than twenty horsemen. 10) Restrictions on the type and quality of clothing should not be transgressed. One should be able to distinguish lord and retainer, high and low ... it is against all ancient law that nowadays vassals and soldiers are wearing gaudy clothes damask, gauze or embroidered silk. 11) Ordinary people should not indiscriminately ride in palanquins. This is really the extreme of presumption. Henceforth, a lord of a province and the senior members of his house may ride [in palanquins] without first needing to ask for permission.
  • Tokugawa Ieyasu introduced these policies to maintain a stable social order. He granted the Daimyo independent domains across the country so that in return, they would support him. The Daimyo would provide the Samurai with food and land and in return, they would provide military support.
