Tokugawa Shogunate and Edo culture
What is the Edo period?
The first Tokugawa Ieyasu established the shogunate in Edo in 1603, and Edo was the center of politics for 265 years until the 15th general Tokugawa yoshinobu.
For about 260 years, peace was maintained for a long time. This is an unusual phenomenon in the history of the world. You can imagine the vibrant Edo townscape of the people of those days.
