Description

Fighting has broken out between two sides of the Hatakeyama family on who should be the heir after Hatakeyama Yoshikuni. Yoshikuni had originally adopted his nephew Hatakeyama Masanaga as his heir, when his biological son Yoshinari was born shifted Yoshikuni changed his mind. This widened a split in the Hatakeyama family that was caused by the division of land of Akamatsu Mitsusuke's land.The resulting conflict was made worse by the fact that the Hatakeyama are one of three noble families that have the right to be the Kanrei of Yamashiro, the Hosokawa and the Shiba being the other two, and therefore wield considerable power as the highest officials in the Bakufu. The fighting has been been made worse by the involvement of the two other major families in Nippon, the Yamana and the Hosokawa. Both the Yamana and the Hosokawa have asked for permission to chastise the other clan for the involvement. Committing the Bakufu to one side is likely to tip the balance of power in the country and force a reaction from the other side.

Description

In 1587, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who had already consolidated his hold over central Japan in the wake of Oda Nobunaga's murder, seized control of Kyushu, the main stronghold of Japanese Christianity. Alarmed at the possible undermining of authority that Christianity could cause, he proceeded to issue an edict that technically expelled the Jesuit missionaries from Japan, although in reality they were permitted to continue operating so long as they maintained a low profile. He also forced many important Daimyo to renounce their new faith. However, despite this, the number of Christian converts continued rising to a peak of about 300,000.

Action B of 3877 - Hideyoshi's Anti-Christian Edict for Japan

Description

By 1614, Tokugawa Ieyasu had effectively gained control of Japan even though rule had been meant to pass to Toyotomi Hideyoshi's son, Hideyori, when Hideyori reached adulthood. A series of mounting conflicts with the Portuguese, the possibility of trading with the Dutch, and alarm at the spread of Christianity in 'the Land of the Gods' resulted in an Edict of Expulsion for the Jesuit missionaries. The Tokugawa regime then began persecuting the estimated 300,000 Japanese Christians using torture and execution as their primary instruments. This eventually helped to prompt the Shimabara peasant rebellion in Kyushu in 1638 in which about 30,000 overtaxed peasants rebelled, but were eventually massacred. If the Tokugawa regime had instead extended toleration to Christianity, then in Kyushu Catholicism may have eventually emerged as the dominant religion.

Action B of 3878 - Tokugawa's Edict of Expulsion for Japan
Action B, C of 3879 - Tokugawa's Edict of Expulsion for Japan

Description

Because of the political consolidation of Japan, antagonism of the ruling elite towards Christianity, and general disdain for the 'southern Barbarians' as Europeans were termed, the Tokugawa regime in the 1630s began to implement the policy of Sakoku, or the Closed Country. The Merchant Marine was disbanded, no large ocean-going ships were allowed, and foreign travel was prohibited. This culminated in the final Sakoku edict of 1639 that banned all trade with Europeans except for a small Dutch factory at Nagasaki. Japan then turned inward for the next two centuries. However, if Japan had maintained closer contacts with the West by tolerating Christianity, then this policy of isolation would never had occurred.

Actions

A. Close Japan to Foreigners

  • Revolt risk value in Kyushu -20
  • Innovativeness -6
  • Mercantilism +7
  • Land +8
  • Aristocracy +3
