Samurai weapons and armor, including the fearsome katana sword.
Famous Samurai including Miyamoto Musashi, Japan's greatest swordsman; Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate; and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a unifier of Japan and notorious persecutor of Christians in the 16th century.
Battles and wars, including the Battle of Sekigahara, the largest battle ever to take place in Japan and the Boshin War, which led to the fall of the shogunate and restoration of imperial power.
