Edo period (1600-1868)
The Edo period opens with the great figure of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the general who completed and consolidated the work of Reunification of Japan initiated by Nobunaga and continued by Hideyoshi. Historians often have confronted the different personalities of these three great leaders, masterfully illustrated in the poem of a contemporary poet who imagines the different reactions of the three in front of a cuckoo who does not want to sing. Nobunaga orders "If the cuckoo does not sing, kill him"; Hideyoshi declares "If the Cuckoo does not sing, I will force him to sing"; Ieyasu concludes "If the cuckoo doesn't sing, I'll wait for it to sing." Impetuous the first, calculator the second and patient the third. In fact Ieyasu was able to wait: after fighting alongside both Nobunaga and Hideyoshi, he managed to survive both and complete their work, securing the supreme power to their offspring for over two hundred and fifty years.
