  1. 1. Ilan, Mark, Alex
  2. 2. <ul><li>In the Feudal time period, there were types of jobs that helped out the people in many ways with their daily life, and made getting special products to them easier </li></ul><ul><li>These people were artisans and merchants </li></ul><ul><li>Basically, artisans were thought to be much more valuable and important, but the merchants had a rise of importance in this time period, along with the artisans, which made this time period so important </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Artisans were people who simply made artifacts for money, and were very needed because they were the only reliability for some peoples special needs </li></ul><ul><li>Samurai even relied less on the food the farmers made than the artifacts the artisans made </li></ul><ul><li>In the Feudal era, the artisans had a rise of importance, ending up living in Daimyo castles </li></ul><ul><li>The number of artisans increased, since the people who had the talent to be one knew that they would become very rich, since not many people had the talents to be an artisan </li></ul><ul><li>In just the town of Tsuyama, there were 3 blacksmiths, 8 sword sharpeners, 4 silver smiths, 3 scabbard-workers, 222 carpenters, and much more </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Handled most of the trades in and out of Japan </li></ul><ul><li>Were not respected because all they did was sell what people made and get rich </li></ul><ul><li>Couldn’t even go to the same theater as rest of classes </li></ul><ul><li>Some merchants however were so rich they did not care, but instead lived near the palace, sent their kids to school, and had other luxuries </li></ul><ul><li>Had a code for making money, Saikakus </li></ul><ul><li>this code helped the merchants divide their money with the percentage of each day that a merchant should spend on any part of buisness, early rising 10%, devotion to family buisness 40%, working after hours 16%, thrift 20%, and good health 14%., </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Artisans and Merchants were very different, merchants were rich and not respected, and artisans were not as rich but respected </li></ul><ul><li>Even though these differences seem like they would separate the two classes from each other, artisans and merchants actually worked together </li></ul><ul><li>When artisans produced artifacts, they either directly sold it, or took it to a bigger trade city like Edo, where more people would buy it for more money </li></ul><ul><li>If the artifact was taken to Edo, it was usually sold in a merchants shop, so artisans basically worked together with merchants to sell the artifact for the best possible amount of money </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Artisans and Merchants actually had many connections to Shinto and Zen </li></ul><ul><li>For example, a carpenter meditated while sharpening his tools to be with nature and most importantly the Kami living in the wood </li></ul><ul><li>The tools the carpenter used were so sacred to him that sometimes he was the only one who saw the kami </li></ul><ul><li>Carpenters are just an example, everyone else also had a connection to Shinto and Zen somehow </li></ul><ul><li>Everybody in Japan took part by taking one night to celebrate and remember their ancestors, and to show them how they have been doing in the family buisness </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Some Artisans, the ones that worked with swords worked in the Shogun or Daimyo’s yashikis (their mansions), were greatly honored </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes were given surnames </li></ul><ul><li>A few of these artisans were allowed to bear a sword </li></ul><ul><li>Merchants could not reach this level of social status, as they produced nothing </li></ul><ul><li>Some artisans who became samurais could make their own swords, meaning they were their own sword smith </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Artisans were much more important than merchants to the people, but they both helped out a lot in everyday life in Japan </li></ul><ul><li>Artisans made a lot of products that various people needed in particular, and that no one else could give them </li></ul><ul><li>Merchants traded a lot of products that many family buisnesses needed, that they could not get them selves </li></ul>
