SAMURAI

Originally, Japan was ruled by the Emperor and the nobility. The era of the samurai began at the end of the Heian era following a conflict between the powerful Minamoto and Taira families (Also referred to as the Genji and Heishi clans, respectfully.) After this, a number of samurai-led governments ruled over Japan for approximately 700 years (Kamakura to Edo periods). During that time, Japan faced a number of conflicts from outside its borders. There were two invasions by Mongolian forces that needed to be repelled. The Age of Discovery brought the Spanish Armada as well as the Portuguese, who both put the sovereignty of many East-Asian countries in peril, to Japanese shores. Commodore Perry brought warships from the United States, demanding that Japan reopen its borders. We want to introduce those brave samurai warriors who faced many difficulties to not only only Japanese people but also to people visiting from all over the world.
