Japanese Feudal System
The Japanese feudal system is similar to the European Feudal System in that they both gave grants of land for military service, and the social ladders were similar. Besides that they are very different. In the English feudal system, to get grants of land they must swear an oath of fealty to their lord. In the Japanese system that was not required. The military classes for both feudal systems lived by a code of honor but with Different goals. They had different monetary gains, and the armor they wore was different. Japanese peasants had a little more freedom than the English peasants because they could own land. Both warrior classes were inspired to fight by religion but the knights for God’s glory and the Samurai for their own.
