  Daimyo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term daimyo literally means "great name." From the shugo daimyo of the Kamakura period through the sengoku daimyo to the daimyo of the Edo period, the rank had a long and varied history.
Ieyasu also divided the daimyo into three groups, depending on how close they were to the ruling Tokugawa family: shinpan, who were related to the Tokugawa, the fudai daimyo, who had been vassals of the Tokugawa or allies in the battle, and the tozama daimyo, who opposed the Tokugawa but were defeated.
Tozama daimyo held large fiefs, with the Kaga han of Ishikawa Prefecture, headed by the Maeda clan, assessed at 1,000,000 koku.

The daimyo were divided into two groups based on their relationship with Iwyasu Tokugawa, the founder of Japan's last great feudal house.
Thus the daimyo were responsible to the Tokugawa Shogunate for upholding the policies of the central government and were restricted in matters having to do with the security of the shogunate.
The daimyo were privileged to exercise absolute power in most areas within their domains - particularly the lives and fortunes of their subjects - but they were controlled in all areas of national interest by the laws of the shogun and could be removed by the shogunate government.

The term Daimyo, so-called Domain Lords, literally means 'great names' in English, and was a title given to lords governing large territories and commanding a large number of vassals (kenin) starting in the Muromachi period.
The daimyo were divided into several categories: fudai-daimyo hereditary vassals; tozama-daimyo ('outside' daimyo) allies of the bakufu; and shimpan-daimyo kinsmen of the Tokugawa family.
During the Meji Restoration of 1868, certain daimyo were appointed governors of their provinces (the called han), but in 1871 all han were abolished and Japan was divided into prefectures (ken).

 Daimyo review, by Tom Vasel
Daimyo reminded me of another abstracted Japanese war game, Tenjo; but while Tenjo was large and awfully clunky, Daimyo is extremely light and elegant.
A battlefield is constructed of hexagons - the layout differing depending on the number of players (two through four), but each player has three hexes of their own color with the remainder in a neutral color.
Players must guard their own Daimyo, but at the same time they must also protect their colored hexes, because a slower, more subtle attack by the enemy can give them the victory.

The second class of the hierarchy were the fudai, or "house daimyo," rewarded with lands close to the Tokugawa holdings for their faithful service.
Because the tozama were least trusted of the daimyo, they were the most cautiously managed and generously treated, although they were excluded from central government positions.
Although the daimyo were not taxed per se, they were regularly levied for contributions for military and logistical support and for such public works projects as castles, roads, bridges, and palaces.

When this collapsed in the 15th and 16th centuries, the great daimyo destroyed each other and were replaced by sengoku (Warring State) daimyo, who feuded constantly and actually owned their lands, which they ruled from castles.
Under the Tokugawa there were between 200 and 300 daimyo families, all virtually autonomous within their own estates but subordinated to the shogun and obliged to leave their families as hostages in Edo (Tokyo) and to attend him regularly there.
The daimyo class was abolished in 1871, after the fall of the shogunate, and its members absorbed into a new pensioned nobility.

 Westpark Gamers Reviews - Daimyo
"Daimyo", the term for a Japanese "Archduke" so to speak, is at its heart an extremely abstracted wargame probably closest to chess, but with the added spice of a very elegant action card system that works really well.
Daimyo move: This moves just the poor Daimyo (basically as weak as a King in chess).
As "Daimyo" is so abstract and simplified this inherent multi-player wargame problem is more predominant than in dice and chaos dominated "Risk"-like games, which have exactly the same problem.

In the Tokugawa era about 250 years daimyo flags were not often used and developed due to lack of chance (little war).
The daimyo flags were mainly used as banner at war and basically father/sons/brothers even in a same family used different flags.
The Daimyo flag is believed to have the God of War live in them, thus flags had been placed in a valuable box and stored in a special room of the Daimyo in other circumstances.
