Feudal Lord White Samurai Swords

The Tokugawa shogunate was a feudal like military dictatorship of Japan established in the 17th century lasting until 1868. It marks a period often referred to loosely as feudal Japan, otherwise known by scholars as the Edo period. While modern historians have become very reluctant to classify other societies into European models, in Japan, the system of land tenure and a vassal receiving tenure in exchange for an oath of fealty is very close to what happened in parts of medieval Europe, and thus the term is sometimes used in connection with Japan.
