Tokugawa period. The period in Japan between 1600 and 1868 when power was held by the Tokugawa clan. Because of a strong emphasis on the worth of the traditions and past glories of Japan, it led to a revived interest in Shinto, and laid the foundations for Kokugaku (the School of National Learning).
