    Power was constantly shifting and authority was often ambiguous. Kencho-ji, one of the few temples to have a leaflet printed in English, once encompassed seven main buildings and 49 lesser temples. However the dress and the decorum of these women shines through. In mid-April a weeklong festival includes historical parades, the best of which is on the second Sunday of the month. They were ranked by size, which was measured as the number of koku of rice that the domain produced each year. I was looking for places I hadn't seen, and Mr.

    Each shogunate was dynamic, not static. The trip is among my favorites, for I have never tired of seeing that brooding, mysterious mountain even after living in Japan for more than 10 years. This collection features an excellent introduction to Akutagawa and his times by a star author of a later era: Haruki Murakami. Their roles included mayor, chief of the police and, later, also of the fire departmentand judge in criminal and civil matters not involving samurai. They oversaw the administration of Buddhist temples ji and Shinto shrines shamany of which held fiefs.

    Masterless samurai were called ronin and caused minor troubles during the s. Kamakura was once a soldier's town, first as the headquarters of Minamoto Yoritomo inthen the seat of his feudal government from after he defeated the rival Taira clan in an epic and bloody civil war. The autumn festival, in mid-September, features ''yabusame,'' in which bowmen riding galloping horses let fly with arrows at targets set at right angles to their paths. They oversaw the administration of Buddhist temples ji and Shinto shrines shamany of which held fiefs.

The Shoguns City book

This collection features an excellent introduction to Akutagawa and his times by a star author of a later era: Haruki Murakami. The Western visitor might be put off at first by the architecture of Kencho-ji because most of it is constructed of wood that has been allowed to weather naturally, never painted or decorated.

During the chaotic era of warring states in the 15th and 16th centuries, Japan splintered into dozens of independent states constantly at war with one another.

They also took on additional responsibilities such as supervising religious affairs and controlling firearms. I wanted to explore, too, the fascinating range of alternative stories that people in modern Japan have told about their country: visions of what they hoped it might become, playing out across politics and music, art and philosophy, family and work, dance and religion, literature, folklore and film.
