&nbsp Hideyoshi Toyotomi is the second unifier of Japan. He succeeded his former liege lord, Nobunaga Oda, and brought an end to the Sengoku period. The period of his rule is often called the Momoyama period, named after Hideyoshi's castle. He is noted for a number of cultural legacies, including the restriction that only members of the samurai class could bear arms.

He discovered a secret route into Inabayama, after which much of the garrison surrendered.
