As servants of the daimyos, or great lords, the samurai backed up the authority of the shogun and gave him power over the mikado (emperor). The samurai would dominate Japanese government and society until the Meiji Restoration of 1868 led to the abolition of the feudal system. Despite being deprived of their traditional privileges, many of the samurai would enter the elite ranks of politics and industry in modern Japan. More importantly, the traditional samurai code of honor, discipline and morality known as bushido–or “the way of the warrior”–was revived and made the basic code of conduct for much of Japanese society. For more information about samurai please click here http:\/\/www.history.com\/topics\/samurai-and-bushido\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ff0000;\"\u003eNinja\u003c\/span\u003e were mercenaries in feudal Japan.

Ninja were mercenaries in feudal Japan. Their ways were considered dishonorable and beneath the Samurai class who had strict rules about honor and combat. Once Japan unified in the 17th century the ninja faded away. But during the Meiji Restoration (1868) ninja became a topic of popular imagination and were featured in legends and folklore. They were given legendary abilities like being able to walk on water and invisibility.

Kabuki is a traditional Japanese drama with singing and dancing performed in a highly stylized manner. It combines music, dance, mime, and spectacular staging and costuming. It has been a popular form of entertainment in Japan for almost four centuries. The word Kabuki is written with three characters: ka 歌, signifying “song”; bu 舞, “dance”; and ki 伎, “skill.”

What is interesting is while today kabuki actors are men, kabuki was in fact, first performed by women. In 1603 a woman named Izumo No Okuni, began performing a new style of dance drama. The female actors played both men and women and this new drama style was immediately popular.
