Some interesting facts about samurai and ninjas:
Could anyone become a samurai?
It wasn't just the Japanese who could achieve samurai status. Several people born in foreign countries have been given this title. After Bunroku and Keicho no eki, many people born in the Joseon Dynasty were brought to Japan as prisoners or cooperators. Some of them served the daimyo as servants. One of the most prominent figures among them was Kim Eochol, who was given the Japanese name of Wakita Naokata and appointed commissioner of Kanazawa City.
What is Bushido?
Bushido is a moral code concerning the attitudes, behavior, and lifestyle of the samurai. However, historically, samurai have adhered to a multitude of warrior codes, and their interpretations have varied according to samurai clan, individuals, and eras. The earliest type of proto bushido existed from the Kamakura period (1185).
What is Ninjutsu?
Ninjutsu is a martial art, strategy and tactics of unconventional warfare, guerrilla warfare, rebel tactics and espionage practiced by ninjas. Espionage in Japan dates back to the time of Prince Shotoku (572-622). According to Shoninki, the first overt use of ninjutsu during a military campaign was during the Genpei War, when Minamoto no Kuro Yoshitsune selected warriors as shinobi (ninja) during a battle. Throughout history, shinobi have been assassins, scouts, and spies, hired mostly by territorial lords known as daimyo.
What is the image of ninja in Japan?
The image of the ninja entered popular culture during the Edo period, when folk tales and plays about ninjas were conceived. Ninja stories are usually based on historical figures. For example, there are many similar stories of a daimyo challenging a ninja to prove his worth, usually by stealing his pillow or weapon while he slept. Novels have been written about ninjas, such as Jiraiya Goketsu Monogatari, which has also been turned into a kabuki play.
