Samurai Symbole "Kamon" in Contemporary Japanese Society VideoDragonfly Katana - Cold Steel
Therefore, followers, Nago and Hikan, used the same Myoji as that of their ruler, based upon their territorial connections.
Kamon were handed down in each family with this Myoji and began to be used among the common people's private Myoji in recent times. Kamon does not necessarily correspond to blood line except in cases where descent is clear especially among common people even if Kamon is common in a noble family, it does not mean they have common blood.
Also, during the Edo Period, the custom of including Kamon on ceremonial dress such as 'Haori' and 'Kamishimo,' became common place.
Besides, common Kamon also became decorative and Kamon of samurai and common people were both designed to be glitzy and graceful.
It is thought that during this period, bilaterally symmetrical and diphycercal and circled Kamon began to increase. After Meiji Period During the Meiji Period, although Western culture was introduced, western clothing did not rapidly become widespread except for among the higher class, and common people instead began to increasingly use Kamon for example, on Mompuku clothing decorated with one's family crest and tombstones, thanks for the abolishment of the caste system.
They were also often used as a symbol of nationalism or family. For example, Kamon were shaped to order on the grip of Gunto saber by silversmiths.
After defeat in World War II, social pressure, which peaked during the war, was denied as 'militaristic' and 'feudalistic,' and Kamon was seen as one of the fostering symbols.
Accordingly, with the increasing interest in Western culture, people had seldom put on Mompuku and as a result have become less familiar with Kamon.
However, almost all families have more than one Kamon even today, which have been used on ceremonial occasions. Moreover, from an aesthetic aspect, Japanese Kamon are well known abroad because of the symbolic design and simple structure, and is often used in various designs.

A famous case was that of Oda Tokuhime Daughter of Oda Nobunaga ; irritated by the antics of her mother-in-law, Lady Tsukiyama the wife of Tokugawa Ieyasu , she was able to get Lady Tsukiyama arrested on suspicion of communicating with the Takeda clan then a great enemy of Nobunaga and the Oda clan.
Ieyasu also arrested his own son, Matsudaira Nobuyasu , who was Tokuhime's husband, because Nobuyasu was close to his mother Lady Tsukiyama.
To assuage his ally Nobunaga, Ieyasu had Lady Tsukiyama executed in and that same year ordered his son to commit seppuku to prevent him from seeking revenge for the death of his mother.
Traits valued in women of the samurai class were humility, obedience, self-control, strength, and loyalty. Ideally, a samurai wife would be skilled at managing property, keeping records, dealing with financial matters, educating the children and perhaps servants as well , and caring for elderly parents or in-laws that may be living under her roof.
Confucian law, which helped define personal relationships and the code of ethics of the warrior class, required that a woman show subservience to her husband, filial piety to her parents, and care to the children.
Too much love and affection was also said to indulge and spoil the youngsters. Thus, a woman was also to exercise discipline.
Though women of wealthier samurai families enjoyed perks of their elevated position in society, such as avoiding the physical labor that those of lower classes often engaged in, they were still viewed as far beneath men.
Women were prohibited from engaging in any political affairs and were usually not the heads of their household. This does not mean that women in the samurai class were always powerless.
Powerful women both wisely and unwisely wielded power at various occasions. Throughout history, several women of the samurai class have acquired political power and influence, even though they have not received these privileges de jure.
Nene , wife of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, was known to overrule her husband's decisions at times, and Yodo-dono , his concubine, became the de facto master of Osaka castle and the Toyotomi clan after Hideyoshi's death.
Tachibana Ginchiyo was chosen to lead the Tachibana clan after her father's death. Yamauchi Chiyo , wife of Yamauchi Kazutoyo, has long been considered the ideal samurai wife.
According to legend, she made her kimono out of a quilted patchwork of bits of old cloth and saved pennies to buy her husband a magnificent horse, on which he rode to many victories.
The fact that Chiyo though she is better known as "Wife of Yamauchi Kazutoyo" is held in such high esteem for her economic sense is illuminating in the light of the fact that she never produced an heir and the Yamauchi clan was succeeded by Kazutoyo's younger brother.
The source of power for women may have been that samurai left their finances to their wives. As the Tokugawa period progressed more value became placed on education, and the education of females beginning at a young age became important to families and society as a whole.
Marriage criteria began to weigh intelligence and education as desirable attributes in a wife, right along with physical attractiveness. Though many of the texts written for women during the Tokugawa period only pertained to how a woman could become a successful wife and household manager, there were those that undertook the challenge of learning to read, and also tackled philosophical and literary classics.
Nearly all women of the samurai class were literate by the end of the Tokugawa period. Kasuga no Tsubone fighting robbers - Adachi Ginko c.

As far back as the seventh century Japanese warriors wore a form of lamellar armor , which evolved into the armor worn by the samurai.
These early samurai armors were made from small individual scales known as kozane. The kozane were made from either iron or leather and were bound together into small strips, and the strips were coated with lacquer to protect the kozane from water.
In the 16th century a new type of armor started to become popular after the advent of firearms, new fighting tactics by increasing the scale of battles and the need for additional protection and high productivity.
The kozane dou , which was made of small individual scales, was replaced by itazane , which had larger iron plate or platy leather joined together.
Itazane can also be said to replace a row of individual kozanes with a single steel plate or platy leather.
This new armor, which used itazane , was referred to as tosei-gusoku gusoku , or modern armor. The back piece had multiple uses, such as for a flag bearing.
The helmet kabuto was an important part of the samurai's armor. It was paired with a shikoro and fukigaeshi for protection of the head and neck.
A lightweight portable folding tatami armour made from small square or rectangle armor plates called karuta. The karuta are usually connected to each other by chainmail and sewn to a cloth backing.

The first type were recruits-based armies: at the beginning, during the Nara period , samurai armies relied on armies of Chinese-type recruits and towards the end in infantry units composed of ashigaru.
The second type of organization was that of a samurai on horseback who fought individually or in small groups.
At the beginning of the contest, a series of bulbous-headed arrows were shot, which buzzed in the air.
The purpose of these shots was to call the kami to witness the displays of courage that were about to unfold. At the beginning of the samurai battles, it was an honor to be the first to enter battle.
This changed in the Sengoku period with the introduction of the arquebus. In the middle of the contest, some samurai decided to get off the horse and seek to cut off the head of a worthy rival.
This act was considered an honor. In addition, through it they gained respect among the military class. Most of the battles were not resolved in the manner so idealist exposed above, but most wars were won through surprise attacks, such as night raids, fires, etc.
The renowned samurai Minamoto no Tametomo said:. According to my experience, there is nothing more advantageous when it comes to crushing the enemy than a night attack [ If we set fire to three of the sides and close the passage through the room, those who flee from the flames will be shot down by arrows, and those who seek to escape from them will not be able to flee from the flames.
Cutting off the head of a worthy rival on the battlefield was a source of great pride and recognition. There was a whole ritual to beautify the severed heads: first they were washed and combed,  and once this was done, the teeth were blackened by applying a dye called ohaguro.
During Toyotomi Hideyoshi's invasions of Korea, the number of severed heads of the enemies to be sent to Japan was such that for logistical reasons only the nose was sent.
These were covered with salt and shipped in wooden barrels. These barrels were buried in a burial mound near the "Great Buddha" of Hideyoshi, where they remain today under the wrong name of mimizuka or "burial mound.
During the Azuchi-Momoyama period and thanks to the introduction of firearms, combat tactics changed dramatically. The military formations adopted had poetic names, among which are: .
Each child who grew up in a samurai family was expected to be a warrior when he grew up, so much of his childhood was spent practicing different martial arts.
A complete samurai should be skilled at least in the use of the sword kenjutsu , the bow and arrow kyujutsu , the spear sojutsu , yarijutsu , the halberd naginatajutsu and subsequently the use of firearms houjutsu.
Similarly, they were instructed in the use of these weapons while riding a horse. They were also expected to know how to swim and dive. The combat methods that were developed and perfected are very diverse, among which are: .
Most samurai were bound by a code of honor and were expected to set an example for those below them. Despite the rampant romanticism of the 20th century, samurai could be disloyal and treacherous e.
Samurai were usually loyal to their immediate superiors, who in turn allied themselves with higher lords.
These loyalties to the higher lords often shifted; for example, the high lords allied under Toyotomi Hideyoshi were served by loyal samurai, but the feudal lords under them could shift their support to Tokugawa, taking their samurai with them.
Jidaigeki literally historical drama has always been a staple program on Japanese movies and television. The programs typically feature a samurai. Samurai films and westerns share a number of similarities, and the two have influenced each other over the years.
One of Japan's most renowned directors, Akira Kurosawa , greatly influenced western film-making. There is also a 26 episode anime adaptation Samurai 7 of Seven Samurai.
Along with film, literature containing samurai influences are seen as well. As well as influence from American Westerns, Kurosawa also adapted two of Shakespeare's plays as sources for samurai movies: Throne of Blood was based on Macbeth , and Ran was based on King Lear.
