Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast


 

Aug 31, 2015

Samurai would go to great lengths to protect and glorify their names in action and in battle.  In this episode, we look at the value placed on the Samurai "name" in the context of individuals, clans, Samurai houses, and families. We also look at the corporation-like structure of Sengoku period Samurai houses, where blood was less important than the continuation of the "name".
