In 1603, Japan's government passed into the hands of Tokugawa Ieyasu, who established a military shogunate which was to last for an unprecedented 264 years.

As the warrior class broke away from the imperial court, the center of government was moved from Kyoto to Tokyo.

During this period, Japan was closed to the rest of the world, but internally its culture a nd economy flourished.

Ninja : Shadow People, Secret Maneouvers

The ninja were mysterious figures, whose basic function was to carry out covert operations for their feudal lords. They served as spies and as fighters capable of great stealth.

Although skillful at combat, they emphasized escape rather than fighting, which led them to develop many secret evasion techniques.

While the ninja remained underground, schools of ninja technique sprang up all over the country. Some of the most famous were the Iga School, The Koga School and the Togakushi School.

Oiran : Flowers Of The Night

The Oiran were courtesans who excelled at various arts including poetry, calligraphy, tea ceremony and music. They were of such high class, that only the samurai and the rich could afford their charms.

For the common folk, the only chance to even see Oiran was when they walked the town surrounded by a large number of attendants.
