    This illustrated edition of the ancient classic will enlighten anyone with an interest in Japanese culture and world literature. Yamamoto tells his readers how to foster courage, how to serve selflessly, how to become a skilled master of your own destiny, and how to infuse life with beauty while acknowledging its transience. For this edition, Wilson has added a new introduction that casts Hagakure in a different light than ever before. It is a window into the samurai mind, illuminating the concept of bushido the Way of the Warriorwhich dictated how samurai were expected to behave, conduct themselves, live, and die. The original Hagakure consists of over 1, short texts that Tsunetomo dictated to a younger samurai over a seven-year period.

    Abilities Hand-to-Hand Combat: Toru's primary fighting style consists of directly attacking her opponents with a barrage of punches, taking advantage of her total invisibility to launch surprise attacks that are extremely difficult to guard against. If by setting one's heart right every morning and evening, one is able to live as though his body were already dead, he pains freedom in the Way. Simultaneously erudite and accessible, this volume belongs on the bookshelves of anyone—scholar or hobbyist alike—interested in samurai culture, or modern perceptions thereof. This is very difficult to discover, but it is the highest wisdom.

    Living to "have a nice life" feels good for a while, but leaves people with a feeling of despair and uselessness later. The book has been a favorite of mine for some time, but the symbol on the front has perplexed me. This is valuable for me to think about. There is nothing complicated about it.
