In Japan, merchants were not as well regarded, peasant farmers were more highly regarded and women were exacted to be stronger.
A feudal system
what is feudalism
Land was exchanged for military service and obligations.
At the top: Emperor (highest position, but no political power) Second in line: Shogun (actual ruler, had political power) Third in line: Daimyo (large landowners) Fourth in… line: Samurai/Ninja (warriors loyal to Daimyo) The rest: Peasants (3/4 of population), Merchants (lowest status but gradually gained influence), Artisans (made swords and armor for the Samurai class) Compare it to medieval feudalism, very similar.
well politacaly it was the higher nobles gave land to leeser nobles for loyalty and protection. social charateristics are the pyramid with freeman or pesants at the bottom nex…t up is knights then lord then kings (note: lords sometimes have more power than kings!)
the early Japanese had organized themselves into clans
The both had a decentralized government.
The clan leaders (daimyos) were the highest class other than the Imperial family.
Local lords were called daimyo. They retained soldiers called samurai. The top ruling lord in Japan was called the Shogun. The feudal leaders received tribute from the t…erritories they were responsible for.
FEUDALISM; POWERFUL NOBLES GRANTED LAND TO LESSER NOBLES IN EXCHANGE FOR LOYALTY AND MILITARY SERVICE. MANORIALISM; A LORD AND SEVERAL FAMILIES SHARED THE LAND OF THE M…ANOR, PEASANTS FARMED 2/3 OF THE LAND, PROVIDED SERVICES AND PAID TAXES
kings/monarch nobles/lord vassals/knights/peasants/serfs
Both were almost exactly the same. You must understand that Feudalism is really just a lord giving land to his nobles for military aid and loyalty. Both nations used the same …system. Also both had small petty kingdoms that experienced constant warfare, as each noble ran his fief, or land, as a small nation. Also, Feudalism was also present in several other countries, including China. Today, some countries still use feudalism.
