Product Description
This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Civilizations of East Asia - The Four Tiered Class System of Feudal Japan. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Between the 12th and 19th centuries, feudal Japan had an elaborate four tier class system. Unlike European feudal society, in which the peasants were at the bottom, the Japanese feudal class structure placed merchants on the lowest rung. Confucian ideals emphasized the importance of productive members of society, so farmers and fishermen had higher status than shop-keepers in Japan.

In 1868, the time of the "Floating World" came to an end, as a number of radical shocks completely remade Japanese society. The emperor retook power in his own right, in the Meiji Restoration, and abolished the office of the shogun. The samurai class was dissolved, and a modern military force created in its stead.

Prior to the 1850s, the Tokugawa shoguns had maintained an isolationist policy toward the nations of the western world. Any other foreigners, even those ship-wrecked on Japanese territory, were likely to be executed. Any Japanese citizen who went overseas could never return.

When Commodore Matthew Perry's U.S. Naval fleet steamed into Tokyo Bay in 1853 and demanded that Japan open its borders to foreign trade, it sounded the death-knell of the shogunate and of the 4 tier system.
