Tokugawa Ieyasu (1543-1616), the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate that ruled Japan from 1603 to 1868, is well known for his victories in epic battles and his establishment of the basic institutions of the early modern state. But these political accomplishments were made possible in part through Ieyasu’s participation in cultural practices such as collecting, gift exchange, the tea ceremony, and falconry.
