Samurai (also known as Bushi) was a member of the Japanese military class. The name is also used for the military family of pre-industrial Japan. It’s also the etymology of the Japanese word Subaru. Some believe that Subaru was a Samurai of origin and changed over the years. By the end of the twelfth century, Subaru became synonymous with the word bushi, or warrior. The samurai used many weapons and were experts in their time, but their most famous weapon and symbol of who they were, was the katana (commonly known as a samurai sword. The belief structure and culture was based on Bushido’s idea), which means ‘warrior’s way.’ Advocated unquestioning loyalty to the master at all costs and obedience in all deeds, valuing honor above life.

Bushido was so important to the samurai that they would die or commit suicide in a strictly ceremonial manner called Seppuku by cutting their stomach with a sword before being captured or dying a dishonorable death.


In 538, Buddhism was introduced to Japan by Baekje, with whom they had a military backing agreement, and was promoted by the ruling class. Prince Shotoku was widely known as a regent and politician, devoted his efforts to promoting Buddhist and Chinese culture in Japan.

Shotoku brought relative peace to Japan through the declaration of Juschijo Kenpo in 604, often referred to as the seventeen-section event in Japan. It was a Confucian style document that focuses on the kind of moral and virtue one would expect from a government official. The subject of the emperor. This thinking had a major influence in the philosophy of samurai. Japan suffered extensive reforms following the defeat of Japan with Tang China and Silla. One of these reforms was called the Taika Reformation (Taika no Kaishin) in 646, following the defeat of the Soga clan in Japan.
