Iyeasu was extremely calculating, I mean he would not have broken his oath to Toytomi, if he did not see an advantage. A lot of his policies seem well thought out too.

The technology could exist in say the small scale. But it lacked an overall doctrine in it's application. Whereas cavalry doctrine in Japan was pretty clear. Quick, movile firing platforms basically.

I just think it dropped out of style quickly at least by the Heian period. There were sup up into the Nara period but it just faded. In comparison a majority of foot soldiers in Europe did not have sh ...

Fried mochi with adzuki bean filling. Yummmmm. John

Now I am starving. I think squid, urchin, eel and fish as a sashimi would be acceptable.

I am getting a desk copy of Premodern Japan by Mikiso Hane and Japan to 1600 by Farris. They also look good, so I may switch the main text. I definitely want to use the SA podcast to discuss Nobunaga.
