Began with the appointment of Tokugawa Ieyasu as shogun in 1603. Completed by the resignation of shogun Tokugawa Yoshinobu in 1868. It is characterized as the time of establishment of the Tokugawa dictatorship, at the same time as a transition from medieval civil strife among daimyos to a fully controlled country. During the Edo period, the formation of the Japanese spirit, the emergence of the national Japanese idea, the development of the economy and the bureaucracy took place. The Edo period is the golden age of literature and Japanese poetry, Matsuo Basho is the most prominent representative of the poetry of both the Edo period and Japanese poetry in general.
