Summary
When Tokugawa Ieyasu died at age 72, his vision of a strict class system based on the rule of the samurai had become reality in Japan. But his grandson, Iemitsu, governed in a different style. This program recounts how Iemitsu tightened control over warlords and samurai, pursued policies that led to confrontations with peasants and Christians, and eventually closed Japan to the Western world. Viewers will learn about foreign influences in the country, including Portuguese and Spanish missions and William Adams' role as advisor to the shogunate, as well as the Shimabara Rebellion of 1637
