  • An introduction to samurai culture, based on Inazo Nitobe’s classic 1905 novel.

    This was the first book to explain samurai culture to Westerners in a way that was relatable. It described characteristics or virtues that are associated with bushido - honor, courage, justice, loyalty, self-control - and explained the philosophy behind how samurai were educated and trained; the connection between the sword and the samurai; ritual suicide; and the position of women in samurai culture.

    To this day, it’s considered a must-read for understanding ‘the soul of Japan’ and the samurai ethos.

    This graphic novel revitalizes this classic book, bringing this groundbreaking work to a new audience.
