"Circa 1568 - 1573, the Azuchi-Momoyama Era. Set at the end of the Sengoku era which saw the transition from almost a 100 years of civil war to a unified country at peace which would come to be known as the Edo period. Ugetsu is set at the pinnacle of the Sengoku civil war and depicts the peasant upheavals of the time as well as the universal greed that was so detrimental as to destroy the human soul. "
