Explores the period between the 16th and 19th centuries in Japan by examining the lives of shoguns, samurais, geishas, and the very few westerners allowed into Japan . Japan was then a world unto itself, closed to outsiders, and ruled by shoguns with absolute control. During this period, Japan transitioned from chaos and violence to a land of ritual refinement and peace.

Interesting and beautifully filmed PBS (did KCTS not air this???) documentary about events leading up to the Tokugawa era to Perry's "re-opening" of Japan.

A great documentary on the history of the important 250 year Tokugawa shogunate (1603-1868.) A sterling example/study of the machinations of power. It gives some insight into Japanese culture.
