see the paper details



Tokugawa political system can be describe as the most complex feudal political system that has been developed not only in Japan but also in the world. It had similar settings as the European feudal system featuring emperor, shogun, daimyo, and samurai retainers. However, it was quite bureaucratic, something that was not featured in European feudalism.  One of the most important features of the Takugawa political system was the daimyo. Every daimyo was considered a retainer of shogun.  This means that Takugawa political system was a system in which two levels of government existed each having a high degree of independence.
