Legendary warrior and ruler. He became a suborindate general of Nobunaga Oda. After Oda's death he succeeded in completing the plan of uniting Japan, which had been split by many warring feudal clans, under his control. In addition to his military accomplishments, Toyotomi also accomplished a major land survey, revised the land tax system, developed a code of maritime law, and encouraged foreign trade. He initially accepted Christian missionaries warmly, but later, perceiving them as a political threat, began supressing their activities. He erected monuments, reconstructed Kyoto and Osaka, and encouraged the development of the arts. Late in his life, he attempted to conquer Korea, but after a partial occupation withdrew his forces, just prior to his death. His spirit is enshrined at the Toyokuni Jinja(Shrine). His physical remains are interred within the Hokoku-byo Mausoleum at the Hokoku Shrine.
