in feudal Japan, the emperor was the honorary leader of japan and then the shogun was the leader and therefore at the top of the social structure, then came the diamyos (like the barons of Feudal Japan), and they were the leaders of their community. then came the samurai which were that high because they were the warriors of Japan. then came the peasants like the farmers because they believed that the people that grew the food should be higher than the people that sell the food. then came the artisans, near the bottom because all they did was make art. then came the merchants were at the bottom because all they did was sell the food made by the farmers. they were still at the bottom but many became very rich.
