Shimazu is a one-province minor daimyo in Southern Kyushuan (Western Japan) and the closest daimyo to Flag of Ryukyu Ryukyu. Their ideas are mainly focused on the miltary, which grants them the nickname 'the Prussia of Japan'.


Use the infantry combat ability starting Tradition to destroy. Also make sure to take the lands of your enemy's allies when finishing a war, so you don't have to wait for the truce to expire and then have to fight their respective allies as well (Don't worry about AE. because this way you will gain power way too quickly for the AI to be able to stop you with coalitions). However don't forget to pace yourself a little (Wait for some of your manpower to recover) and also use the snowball technique (always go to war with the weakest possible target first).
