A historical masterpiece of Masaru Murakami's pioneer of the North and North Korean novel novel.

According to the historical imperialism of the Imperial Country due to the influence of the Mito studies of Mitsudo Tokugawa (compilation of the history of Dai Nippon is a performance that should never be praised and praised), before the war it was considered to be a rebels who bowed the bow to the Emperor, a legitimate historical evaluation was made It clearly depicts a human figure that combines the strength and weakness of Mr. Ashikaga Takashi who did not exist. Heikimori, using Yoritomo as a model as an example, do not throw in the ideal to put a new samurai politics and the endless battle with the guardian lord who has given blood to the younger brother Jiyoshi who divided the blood in the North-South morning turbulence, I was especially impressed with the appearance of the late student who was suffering from the reality space that it is not supposed to be. Activities of fictional figures such as Yaita, Red Kyoto, and Kogi are also important factors. Especially it was interesting for Mr. Yaita to be a kyogen, but it was quite interesting to see scenes where his wife and children's enemies, the scene going to slaughter remnants of Mr. Hojo, and the scene where information of overseas countries such as former and Koryo etc., who are the business partners, were handed over to Takashi. All played a role of saying spice of the work well.

Even after Takashi's death, the story continues in the form of a genealogy of successive Ashikaga generals, and at the end it is completed at the place where 15th generation Shogaku died in Osaka in 1597. The author emphasized last that the samurai politics, which was the ideal of Takashi, did not come to an end, but as the unification by the Yamato royal family in the ancient period was like, The reunification of North and North Korea which finally realized in the cost of Yoshimitsu who was working on strengthening the general power such as the reduction of a powerful guardian daimyo who was one was not true Japanese unity,
The lower class such as the nationals and the general populace who stored power in the morning of Shimoguchi shook the weak shogunate of the foundation which has the essence of the coalition government of the guardian daimyo eventually, and it finally became the political change of 1493 by Masayuki Hosokawa Although it enters warring country era in earnest,
After all it was that we had to wait for the appearance of the Three Senior Man of Sengoku to be the first powerful unified government in Japan.
It was a little, but this is said to be a truly significant work force.
