There are various theories about the relationship between the shogunate and the imperial court.[21].Kanpaku-MinisterIeyasu Tokugawa was appointed as Shogun, as was Hideyoshi Toyotomi.Consort kinThe authority of the imperial court was used by connecting.Since the Warring States period, it has controlled the territory in a circle.Public authorityTheOfficial riteEspeciallyEmperorRefers to the Tokugawa Shogunate, which achieved national rule by uniting with the authority of.The shogunateForbidden Nakanami officialsEstablishment ofPurple clothing incidentThrough such means, the imperial court rule was strengthened.Arai ShiroishiIsTokushi YoronThe establishment of the Edo ShogunateZhu ZixueBased on this, he regarded it as a revolution and insisted on the legitimacy of the shogunate.Noricho Motoi,Matsudaira Sadanobu TheLarge government delegation theoryWas chanted, but it was in a position to affirm the power of the Shogunate (Matsudaira SadanobuOne caseConflict with the imperial court).Holy calendar case OfTakeuchi ShikibuAndMeiwa case OfYama prefecture,Emperor ReigenSome tried to regain the power of the imperial court.

The shogunate separates political power from economic power.Most of the Fudai Daimyo, who could be the Shogunate, were devoted to low stone heights of about 5 to 10 stones, while many of the Tozama Daimyo who never allowed them to be involved in the Shogunate government. With a large seal of hundreds of thousands of stonesNational DaimyoWas given the form.Moreover, even the curtainThe elderCapacity 4-5 people, except for special casesOld ageHowever, important matters are consensus, and daily matters are settled on a monthly basis, which is a relatively early diversification of power.This is in the Muromachi ShogunateThree KanreiA family of multiple powersGuardianDoubled asMr. HosokawaHowever, it is a reflection of the fact that it eventually became a hereditary power that monopolized the Kanrei position and overwhelmed the Ashikaga clan.

Local politics

Daimyo who obtained permission from the Edo Shogunate were allowed to govern the land for only one generation in principle.Feudal systemIs.The control system of the territory varies considerably depending on the scale of each daimyo, but it is almost the same as the control system of the shogunate.The same applies to the status system.However, the daimyo was not able to freely control the controlled land, and from the shogunateLarge scaleThe administration was monitored and regulated by the inspector messenger issued by.For this reasonSamurai lawsA considerable number of daimyo were in violationReform-UnpackingAlthough he was punished, this punishment was carried out regardless of whether he was a Shinpan, Fudai, or Tozama.

The daimyo was stipulated by the shogunateChange of attendanceI was obliged to help.This was a major cause of poverty in Daimyo.To overcome thisClan administration reformIs carried out in each clan from the 18th to 19th centuries (at the earliest, the Tosa clan17st centuryI went in the middle).Initially frugalClanIt was mainly promulgated, but in the middle of the 18th century, local products such as salt and potteryMonopoly systemIs carried out in a considerable clan.In a strange placeKishu clanThere is a "", and even the daimyo himself becomes a financial company and takes interest.Also,Sendai DomainIs in Osaka's MasuyaThe beginningIsYamagata BantōSome clan has left the finances to the merchants, just as the clan's finances were reviewed.

Part ofNational DaimyoExcept for the clan, the territory of the clan is a little far from the central castle and the castle town area, and the others.EnclaveI had(Remuneration).This tendency is especially common in Fudai Daimyo around 10 stones.Near KyotoYodo DomainHad territory not only in Kinki such as Yamashiro but also in Kazusa far away.

As a method of controlling the daimyo, wartime military service is a change of attendanceWorld buildingIn addition to being left in the form of an obligation to participate in the event, influential daimyo were given measures similar to taking over the house by sending the shogun's child as an adopted child or a bride.

In addition, with some exceptions, each clan is a clan officer.ChiyukiBy the beginning of the 18th centuryLocal knowledge system(Allows the feudal lord to give a part of the territory to the feudal lord, and the annual tribute income raised from it belongs to the feudal lord) to the salary system The brewed rice is paid to the clan as an annual salary).

In the early Edo period, each clan fought for boundaries with neighboring clan.In a famous placeKubota DomainMorioka DomainThe Kazuno territory has developed to the point where it crosses the tide, but in addition to thisSendai DomainSoma Nakamura Domain,ClanTokuyama Domainand so on.These were mostly resolved by the mid-term, and the boundaries decided at that time are still being carried on.


A town centered around the castle where the shogunate and daimyo are based (castle townOther than), it was basically considered to be a rural area.For this reason, income from port profits and minerals from mines was also converted into rice.The daimyo thought that the prosperity of the castle town, which contributes to the payment, was synonymous with their own development, and implemented a protection policy.

However, in the middle of the Edo period, the development of port towns and post towns, and the cultivation of highly cashable cotton began in rural areas.資本主義The decline of the castle town became conspicuous, as the donations to the daimyo became too heavy and some of the merchants collapsed.The shogunate tried to cool the farmer's business feverEi Tabata Trading BanPromulgation of ya etc. had no effect.

In rural areasLord,ShoyaExists as a bridge between the shogunate / daimyo and the village, and in principle the samurai were not in the village (Local knowledge systemThere are exceptions such as the Sendai Domain, which preserved the.thisLord,ShoyaIs often the descendant of a leading peasant who owns the land for a long time or an indigenous samurai.Family name swordAlternatively, there were many who had the privilege of exemption from various roles and were listed as locals.Also, in a large village, there are multiple masters, Shoya.YoriOpened and ruled the village.Not only did they keep their annual tributes in check, but they also served to lower the orders of the administration.Although there are differences depending on the clan, if the peasant is in trouble, he will tell the administration on behalf of them, and in the case of a riot, he will stand on the rural side and take the lead. In some cases, the lower-ranking officials, who are at the end of the control mechanism, were strongly targeted at the time of a riot.In the latter half of the early modern period, when the landowner's aspect became stronger, such as accumulating the land of poor microfarmers, many of them had the latter aspect.

Focusing on reading and writingTerakoya,private school, In rural areasHometown(Hometown school) was set up, and Japanese peopleLiteracy rateWas expensive.Also of the Okayama domainSecluded schoolWith this as a starting point, the clan and Hatamoto here and there created a school where even locals could enter.Something like thisMogami Tokunai,Mamiya RinzoIt can be said that it plays a role in the success of people from rural areas.

The Edo period, when the shogunate drastically relocated daimyo, was also an era of active cultural exchange throughout Japan.For example, in MikawaMizunoWas established in Bingo Fukuyama, so the language of Mikawa flowed into the Bingo area, and the dialect of the Fukuyama region was mixed with the Mikawa dialect.He also ruled ShinanoMr. SengokuWhen transferred to Tajima Izushi, Shinano'sJapanese buckwheat noodlesBecause I brought it to IzushiIzushi sobaWas born.Exchanges of such things are occurring in various places, but in many areas this is a current specialty.

The identification system can be broadly divided.samuraiThe ruling class and the controlled classTradesman-Common people・ Although there were drinkers and renters, there was some liquidity in the status, such as influential tradesmen and peasants sometimes buying stocks of samurai.In addition to theseOfficial house,School inspection, Actor, priest,Chief officer,Tadashi,outcastThere were various classes such as, but the classes called by the same name in different areas have virtually different actual conditions, and the classes that are regarded as different classes in one area are equated in other areas.

Economy / Trade / External Relations


During the Edo period, economic development was rapid, and the accumulation of capital wasMeiji RestorationIt will be the driving force for subsequent economic development.

Since the daimyo of each region sold rice and fish agricultural products produced by their own clan in Osaka in order to cover the cost of the Edo clan's residence and the change of attendance, Osaka is the name of the daimyo.KurashikiWas placed, and special products from all over the country were lined up, and it was booming.In addition, many daimyo stayed at the inns and hatago on the highway due to the change of attendance and the help contract, so the economic distribution became active.The Edo ShogunateStock companyWas formed to allow the monopoly of a specific merchant to control the commerce.However, in reality, in the latter half of the Edo period, the rise of emerging merchants began in both cities and regions, and they began to show active development.The Shogunate was unable to adequately respond to these movements in economic development, which contributed to the upset of the Shogunate without being able to calm the social turmoil caused by price fluctuations.

According to Angus Madison (see pp.195-196 below), the GDP as of 1820 (Kyoho year) is 1 times that of Japan, 1.75 times that of the Netherlands, and 0.3 times that of the United Kingdom, assuming that the United States is 2.8. In 1850, the United States nearly doubled that of Japan (Michifumi Isoda, "The Inner Curtain of Japanese History," Chuko Shinsho, 2th Edition, 10, pp.2018-195).The per capita production in the Edo period was 196% (Masanori Takashima, "Japanese History of Economic Growth, 1").

As an external policy, the shogunateSea ban(So-calledIsolation) The policy was in place.However, he came to the prefecture when he replaced the shogun.Korean communication ambassadorI often visited the Qing dynasty again.Director of the Dutch Trading HouseIt is said that he had grasped the trends in Europe to some extent (Dutch book).For example, the old man who reformed TenpoMizuno TadakuniImmediately withdrew the Edict to Repel Foreign Ships when the Opium War broke out in the Qing dynasty, but this was also due to the fact that the Western powers, including Britain, were aware of their diplomatic stance toward the Qing dynasty.In addition, a Western medical school in Narutaki, Nagasaki (Narutaki Cram School) OpenedSieboldMany Japanese were studying under the school, and there was a limited range of exchanges between Westerners and Japanese.

Monetary policy

The Edo Shogunate reformed the monetary system using a large amount of accumulated gold and silver as a source of funds.Before the founding of the Shogunate1601 To (6th year of Keicho)Kinza(Oval) andGinzaFounded,KeichokinSilverOrdered the casting of.From KeichoKaneiUntil around the timeJinshanandSilver mineIs one of the largest in the world, and the 5th ShogunTokugawa TsunayoshiUntil that time, the gold and silver reserves of the Edo Castle Ruins were plentiful.And it was an imported productYongle TongbaInstead of1636 (Kanei 13 years),ZenzaProvideKanei TreasureDomestic currency such as was coined and distributed.

Also, after the Kanei period, the production of gold and silver began to fade, whereaspopulationGradually increased, the economy developed, and the shogunate's spending increased, leading to financial difficulties, and the stockpile of gold and silver began to bottom out.1695 (8th year of Genroku)GenrokukinSilverStarting with the issuance of, recasting will be carried out to reduce the quality in order to obtain a roll and expand the currency.

The Shogunate will change the ratio of gold and silver coins after the Genroku periodMoney recastFrequently[22]..This is a policy whose main purpose is to improve the finances of the Shogunate, and to increase the money issuance profit by adjusting the rice price, reducing the money contained in the money, and increasing the amount of money issued. The policy was to improve the public finances, but on the other hand, this policy also had the purpose of increasing the amount of money in the market and adjusting the gold and silver prices inside and outside the market.[23].Tokugawa TsunayoshiOf the eraGenroku recast TheReflationIt had an effect and improved the economy[24],Hoei's recastThen, the rice price rose by 83%, causing rapid inflation.[25].Arai ShiroishiLed byShotoku recastCaused deflation due to a decrease in currency circulation[26]..after thisTokugawa YoshimuneMade byGenbun recastWas carried out for the purpose of deflation measures, and it was decided to stabilize the rice price for 80 years.[27].Tokugawa IemitsuDue to the financial difficulties of the Shogunate, large-scale recasting was carried out, and the circulation of money increased by 40%.[28]..In addition, this Bunsei recast andMizuno TadakuniLed byTenpo recastExchanged gold and silver coins at face value, and the shogunate earned a large amount of money.As a result, the shogunate's monetary spending increased, and although it was slower than in the Genbun period, it was evaluated as having brought about inflation that stimulated the economy.Hiroshi Shinbo) Also[29]..After the opening of the country, Ansei will adjust the price difference between domestic and foreign gold and silver.Man'en recastHowever, this led to a further nominal increase in the circulation of money, and the economy suffered dramatic inflation.[30].


Ieyasu Tokugawa uses the income of the samurai as the basis of the samurai's rule structure.RiceWas dependent on.Therefore, the main economic policy of the Shogunate was to stabilize the US market.However, if we increase the production of rice in order to increase our income, it will be difficult to think that the price of rice will decrease, and the samurai class will be in distress.Frugality,Tokusei OrdinanceWill be issued.These factors have given merchants control of the economy.

In the 18th century, famine began to occur frequently in Japan, andTempo's Great FamineWhen it becomes, the harvest is zero depending on the clan (Tsugaru DomainEtc.) will also appear.Look at thisTanuma TheMercantilismAttempts to adopt the policy have failed due to opposition.The main purpose is to improve finances,Money recastFrequently[22].

In Shinto, Shinto and Confucianism are united with the encouragement of Confucianism by the Shogunate and various feudal lords.Suika ShintoConfucian Shinto such as appeared.Then, with the rise of Kokugaku, the restoration Shinto that abolished the Buddha was advocated, and in some cases the separation of Shinto and Buddha began.Reconstruction Shinto excluded the teachings of Confucianism and Buddhism, while Suika Shinto and Reconstruction Shinto also influenced the ideas of the late Tokugawa shogunate and the policies of the Meiji era.Due to the restoration of imperial court power in the Meiji Restoration, shrines of the Emperor were erected in various places (Minatogawa Shrine was also around this time), and the tombs of the Emperor were established in various places.

Yasokyo (Christianity)

Following the flow of the expulsion of Batteren by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Christianity called Yasokyo was thoroughly cracked down throughout most of the Edo period.

Since Christianity was introduced from trading countries such as England and Portugal in the early Edo period, the ban was not enforced.However, the crackdown on Christianity strengthened as the seclusion policy was strengthened.

Academic / Thought

During the Edo period, the war was calmed down and society became stable and peaceful.EconomyAs the activity became more active, people's speech activities became more active and diverse.LearningHas blossomed.Also due to economic developmentCommon peopleThe rise of the scholarship gave birth to academic leaders.The characteristics of academics in the Edo period are centered on the intuitive and associative thinking of individual researchers.中 世It can be mentioned that the attitude of conducting empirical research based on literature, etc., has emerged, rather than proceeding with research based on a specific idea.Also in someidentityThe idea of ​​denying the system has emerged.Thus, leaving the Middle AgesModernThe Edo period is historically close toThe early modern periodIs defined as.

The Edo period was also a time of many catastrophes.The shogunate's request for disaster recovery was mostly limited to the Tenryo, and most of the relief for each daimyo was in the form of loans.[34].
