Would you like to try doing something different, something utterly new, something radical that no one else has ever tried and succeeded with, that is re-enacting the arrival of the Europeans in 16th and 17th century Japan. You would? Then welcome to SHŌGUN.







Go to the SHŌGUN Gallery page for a detailed description of the above, and more images.

Introduction

SHŌGUN is a small unique historical re-enactment and live role playing society, with members from all over the UK. Our aim is to recreate the era of first contact between the Europeans and the Japanese people. We take part in public historical shows and run our own private events as well. The project which has been immensely difficult, was begun in 1994, and it was not until 2005 that we were able to put on our first large show, complete with a period encampment. This was Military Odyssey in Detling, a huge multi-period show held every August bank holiday. Since then we have put on displays at numerous events around the country, including the annual Will Adams Festival in Gillingham, held every September. In our early days we put on small displays at places like the National Trust's property at Snowshill Manor, which houses the Wade collection of Japanese arms and armour.
