The Life of Tokugawa Ieyasu In a small, insignificant samurai clan, was Tokugawa Ieyasu. When we picture a samurai general, we don’t usually see a patient one, but Tokugawa Ieyasu was one. “He was born as the only son of a small and struggling warlord in the province of Mikawa, somewhat to the north of present day Nagoya” (colombia.edu). Out of the many generals that fought in the sengoku jidai, he was one that became very famous. In the battle of Mikatagahara, he was allying with Oda Nobunaga which helped him during that battle.
Matsuo Basho started studying haikai, modern day haiku (meaning beginning verse), which has 3 different phases.

Tokugawa Ieyasu was the founder and the first shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan, and has been one of the most significant figures in Japanese history. Besides being such a successful and powerful ruler, Ieyasu had immensely changed the way Japanese society was structured and organised. From 1603-1608, Tokugawa began the modernisation of Japan. He became the first shogun who had more power over the emperor, and started changing the ways of Japan’s trade, economy, agriculture and social hierarchy. Ieyasu’s ‘main political goal was to cut off the roots of potential dissent and rebellion’ (University of Colorado, 2015); he did so when his army was victorious at the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600.

In his time, Yamagata was known as one of the fiercest of the Takeda warriors for his ability to fight and for capturing a
Yayoi Kusama’s work has transcended two of the most important art movements of the second half of the 20th century: minimalism and pop art. Plagued by mental illness as a child, and thoroughly abused by a callous mother, the young artist persevered by using her hallucinations and personal obsessions as fodder for prolific artistic output in various disciplines. This has informed a lifelong commitment to creativity at all costs despite the artist’s birth into a traditional female-effacing Japanese culture, and her career’s coming of age in the male dominated New York scene. Her extraordinary career spans paintings, performances, room-size presentation, literary works, outdoor installations, sculpture, fashion, films, design and intervention within existing architectural structures, which allude at once to microscopic to macroscopic universe. Yayoi Kusama was born on March, 22, 1929 in Matsumoto, Japan as the youngest of four children in a wealthy family.

The Man'yōshū and the Kokinshū are maybe among the most worshipped and soonest accumulations of Japanese poetry. The Man'yōshū, signifying "Collection of Ten Thousand Leaves (or Generations)," is accepted to be arranged by the poet Ōtomo no Yakamochi at some point after AD 759 amid the Nara Period. It contains more than 4,000 poems, generally tanka, that date before the finish of the eighth century, and the compositions are to some degree partitioned chronologically into four periods (The Ancient Period, p-60). Very nearly two centuries later, the Kokin waka shū or Kokinshū, signifying "Collection of Poems Ancient and Modern," was assembled under the imperial command of Emperor Daigo in AD 905 amid the Heian Period by a few surely understood
