Pictures from the Edo-Tokyo Museum

This is a scale model of the compound of the daimyo (lesser lord over a bunch of samurai warriors) showing the Shogun gate. The Shogun was the head of all of Japan and had more power than the Emporer, who was more of a figurehead during the Edo period (1660 to 1867).
