The Tokugawa Bakufu is the feudal military government that ruled Japan from 1603 to 1867 under the leadership of various shōguns of the Tokugawa lineage. Though the samurai who lived throughout this era were considered the ruling class, with the coming of Commodore Perry and his "black ships" the days of the Bakufu drew to an end, prompting the days of the Bakumatsu.
