Feudal Japan was a tough time but thankfully these warriors of the bushido code were protecting the country…right? In this episode we’re looking for the truth behind Samurai and Shogun, asking some of the big questions like; Were ronin vigilantes? Were samurai virtuous good guys? Were there female samurai? Was seppuke/hara kiri all about honor? Was the Katana the primary weapon of samurai? and more! We’re also looking at movies, like Rurouni Kenshin, The Last Samurai, Ran, Rashomon, The Seven Samurai, 47 Ronin, 13 Assassins, and more to find our myths.
