Some of the best stories we’ll ever hear come from history. Without understanding history, we fail to understand our society today, and we might find ourselves repeating patterns that we shouldn’t be repeating. While all that’s important, another reason why we should be more informed about history is because some historical periods are just epically awesome. One such period in world history that’s pretty darn epic is the Sengoku Jidai. This was a time in Japan’s history (from the 15th to 17th centuries) where the whole country was basically broken into much smaller pieces, and those pieces were ruled by powerful samurais.

This is a time in history where an entire country was at war, and Japan’s central government was largely made of puppets who held no real power. In actuality, the power was held by warriors, and whoever managed to control the most land. This time in history gave us some of the most interesting characters in Japanese and world history, and honestly, I’m surprised that there hasn’t been a blockbuster movie made about the Sengoku Jidai, especially about the reunification of Japan, which we’re going to be spending the most time on here. Here’s what you need to know about the Sengoku Jidai and the eventual reunification of Japan.
