Muromachi period

As the Northern and Southern courts continue their opposition, grandson of Ashikaga Takauji, Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, establishes a residence in Muromachi, Kyoto, called Hana no Gosho. He starts to govern from there, and the Muromachi Shogunate is born both in name and reality. Yoshimitsu then displays immense political power and the Southern and Northern Courts are unified. With this, the feudal government possesses power over the emperor and court nobles, and bushi become rulers of Japan.
