The Tokugawa Shogunate had its center in Edo castle.

The Tokugawa shogunate, also known as the Tokugawa bakufu (徳川幕府?), and the Edo bakufu (江戸幕府?), was a feudal Japanese military government.[1] The heads of government were the shoguns.[2] Each was a member of the Tokugawa clan.[3]

These years are known as the Edo period. The period takes its name from the city where the Tokugawa shoguns lived.[4] This time is also called the Tokugawa period[1] or pre-modern (Kinsei).[5]
