The explanations and notes attached to all 16 volumes of the main volume are limited to the minimum required items and brief explanations due to space limitations. Complementing them, we provide clues for readers of modern translations to go further and touch the charm of the original text. In addition, various issues such as politics and law, society and culture in the Kamakura period, which spread from "Azuma Kagami", are explained in plain language. The final volume will deepen your understanding of "Azuma Kagami" and the Kamakura period. (The content is from the "BOOK" database. For details, see the amazon link below.)

From ancient times to the Middle Ages, from Kyoto to Togoku, from aristocracy to samurai politics. The ancient state was dismantled, and from among the powerful samurai warriors, Yoritomo, the main line of the Seiwa-Genji clan, established the shogunate in Kamakura. How did he manage to rule the world? What role did his wife play? It depicts a turning point in Japanese history, such as the shogunate's organizational structure, the characteristics of the samurai of the eastern provinces, and the achievements of the Hojo clan, who solidified their foothold for nationwide control.
