Kamakura Shogunate

  SHOGUN MACBETH is staged during The Kamakura Shogunate, a period of Japanese history marked by the country's first era of military government which was established by Minamoto Yoritomo, and ruled from 1185 (or 1192, when it was formally recognized) to 1333. The creation of the Kamakura Shogunate marks the start of Japan's feudal period, characterized by a warrior ethic of duty, loyalty, and stoicism. Many elements of Japanese culture that Westerners now associate with the country—including Zen samurai (warriors), sepuku (ritual disembowelment), and the tea ceremony—date from this period.
