History Edit

"The Shogunate was built in the fifteenth century as the central architectural representation of the might and grace of the Japanese shogun, or bakufu. Its magnificent grounds encompass the seat of power, as well as the surrounding village, the entire community safely tucked within the outermost moat. Behind the Shogunate’s sturdy ramparts and walls, the most influential lords of Japan met to plot their nation’s future."
