Continues the story of Japan from the establishment of the first shogunate at the end of the 12th century through to the Meiji Restoration in the second half of the 19th century. During this time, Japanese culture developed many of the rituals and practices still recognisable today, and witnessed the flourishing of artistic and religious traditions, such as Zen Buddhism and the "Way of Tea", against the backdrop of almost constant political struggles and the honing of the art of Bushido: the Way of the Warrior. Encounters with the West and the conflicts with Korea are also included.
