In the early 1600s, as Japan came out of a long period of war, the new ruling samurai family, the Tokugawa, established tight restrictions on movement, both within the country and across borders. Travel abroad was prohibited. Foreign merchants and dignitaries from selected countries were allowed to enter Japan, but only at chosen ports and under strict supervision. Within Japan, all but ‘essential’ travel was banned. The Tokugawa put in place a system of travel permits and checkpoints, and illegal travel could be very costly – even deadly, if one was suspected of disrupting peace.
