      But what does enforced isolation have to do with peace? The samurai under
      the Tokugawa Shogunate were fratricidal maniacs, albiet rules-obsessed
      ones...and the Heian period is marked by constant civil strife.

      Incidentally, it was the Tokugawa shoguns who developed the first
      Japanese-made gunpowder weapons, to help supress restive daimyos.

      Eadric the Potter,

      who studied Japanese history and language for years, and still has barely
      scratched the surface.
