End of the Samurai - Black Ships - Extra History - Part 1

The end of the samurai came as Japan was forced to open its borders to foreign trade and policy, ending a long period of isolation. And that period flipped everything over. Suddenly merchants who had the least amount of social standing found themselves with a huge monetary advantage. New districts with theater and arts rose that paid no heed to the old caste system. And this did not sit well with a faction of the samurai. It's called the Bloodless Revolution by history, but this series will show... it was anything but. Missed an Episode?
