They were classified into 4 social classes-
-Samurai: this class consisted of 6% of the population. This was the only class who was allowed to bear weapons, and they each had two swords.
-Peasants: this class was mostly focused on their village. They were allowed to own land.
-Merchants: they traded local and regional goods.
-Artisans: they moved to be around the castles to provide goods for the samurais, since they didn’t produce their own goods.
During this time, in Japan, the entertainment was narrowed down to two things, mostly. Number one, Kabuki plays, which came early in the century, and there was also painting, which came later in the century, since most of it was based on Kabuki performances.
What Did People Eat?
In the 1600s in Japan, there was a period of isolationism, and the Japanese culture became clearer during this time period. Buddhism and Shinto, Japan’s main religions, emphasized the seasons, which resulted in decision on which foods were served. Since then, the meals feature five flavors and five colors; sweet, spicy, salty, bitter, and sour; and yellow, black, white, green, and red.
Because the Japanese culture is just so amazing.
