Feudal Japan: Peasants

By Ivan, Emily, Jamie, and Joel:-)

  • Out of the three classes (Royal, Noble, Lower) they were part of lower class
  • They were the highest ranking of the noble class (above the artisans and the merchants - yes, above the artisans- but it is debatable)
  • They were considered an honorable rank in the lower class
  • There were lots of peasants
  • They enjoyed more privileges if they worked
  • They were farmers so if they farmed the land, they would gain more protection from the samurais
