In 1192 the first shogun was given command of all of the emperor's military forces. According to "Web-japan.org" they state: "During the Heian period(794-1192) the members of the military gradually became more powerful than the court officials, and eventually they took control of the government." This is important because this is the reason why a shogun was needed. A shogun was needed because the Heian period economy of military was high and someone needed to control it. According to answers.com they state: "To have a commander of all of military forces," meaning that a shogun was needed to control the emperor's military.
How and why was the title of a shogun developed?

As a shogun there was very little responsibility to do. One responsibility was to license foreign trade. This means that the shogun would have to look at international trade ships and people. Another job that a shogun had was to operate gold mines. This can be looked at to mean they had to look and dig out gold mines. The last job that a shogun had to do was to rule major cities. to mean that they had to look and help the/a city(ies) safety. In return of these 3 jobs, shoguns got a 25% of land back to them and their families.
What were the responsibilities of a shogun? Be detailed.
Shoguns had a few social custom and traditions. One of those tradition was they loved to drink tea. According to Teamuse.com, the website gives ideas on how the shoguns would make their teas. Another tradition was customs and manners. They would always be well-mannered and never be disrespectful. The last tradition was religion. They would practice Buddhism when it finally reached Japan. According to www.shogun.ro, the website explains that most of the Japanese families are the same. They both celebrate the same holidays, religion, and they eat the same food mostly everyday.
Explain 3 of their social customs and traditions.
Minamoto Yoshinaka, Price Morikum and Tokugawa Yoshinobu are important to the Japanese society for these certain reasons; Minamoto Yoshinaka was a general of the late Heian period. He was also a member of the Minamoto Samurai clan who killed thousands of people. Prince Morikum is important because he was a chef minister who later became a Buddhist preist before his passing in 1333. The last important shogun is Tokugawa Yoshinobu who was in office for 8 years and fought in the Boshin War.
