As their ubiquitous presence in Tokugawa artwork and literature suggests, images of bourgeois wives and courtesans took on iconic status as representations of two opposing sets of female values. Their differences, both real and idealized, indicate the full range of female roles and sexual values affirmed by Tokugawa society, with Buddhist celibacy on the one end and the relatively free sexual associations of the urban and rural lower classes on the other.

From one of the most important forces in Japanese filmmaking, Ito Daisuke, comes the biography of the greatest Warlord in Japan’s history. Tokugawa Ieyasu was a brilliant general who rose through a combination of good luck and better strategies than his mentors and enemies. Having served under the powerful leaders who preceded him, Oda Nobunaga and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, his ambition knew no bounds. How he was able to defeat the forces of the Western Army and seize control of Japan is a story which must be told properly. While Ieyasu’s rise was the basis for James Clavell’s “Shogun” which fictionalized his story using the false name Toranaga, before this film, little was known of Ieyasu before now.

Tsunayoshi (1646-1709), the fifth Tokugawa shogun, is one of the most notorious figures in Japanese history. Viewed by many as a tyrant, his policies were deemed eccentric, extreme, and unorthodox. His Laws of Compassion, which made the maltreatment of dogs an offense punishable by death, earned him the nickname Dog Shogun, by which he is still popularly known today.

Perhaps more than anywhere else in the world, the nineteenth century encounter between East Asia and the Western world has been narrated as a legal encounter. Commercial treaties–negotiated by diplomats and focused on trade–framed the relationships among Tokugawa-Meiji Japan, Qing China, Choson Korea, and Western countries including Britain, France, and the United States.
