Azuchi Momoyama Period-Azuchi Momoyama Jidai (1568-1600)
The era is dominated by three great daimyo, Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu, who manage to gain control in Japan. The period is named after the castles of these warlords, Azuchi (Nobunaga) and Momoyama (Hideyoshi). Kyoto is captured by Nobunaga and he is appointed shogun, but is assassinated and Toyotomi Hideyoshi takes over.
Hideyoshi invades Korea. He succeeds in reuniting Japan and introducing new laws. It will now only be the samurai who are allowed to carry swords.
