This exhibition is mainly composed of articles used by the daimyo (such as swords, armor, household effects, and tea ceremony utensils), which have been handed down from generation to generation for more than tree hundred years within the Tokugawa family--the family that played a significant role in the pre-modern history of Japan.

Approximately three hundred items have been carefully selected from the collection of the Tokugawa Art Museum in Nagoya for exhibition. Most of these valuable items have never been allowed out of Japan before, and the fact that they will be on exhibition in several cities in the United States and Europe for two and a half years is also unprecedented.

The family of the Tokugawa shoguns exerted its authority in every aspect of Japans pre-modern period as the supreme power in the land. In particular, the culture developed by the shogunal family was revered by the common people as the ideal culture of that time, and has been regarded as the source of traditional Japanese art.

This catalog introduces all three hundred exhibit items in magnificent color photos, and with text that explains in readily understandable terms the significance fo the age of the shoguns, the authority wielded by the shogun, and the aesthetic sensiblilities fo the members of the samurai class.
