Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast


Follow your hosts on a trek into Japanese history, from ancient Japan to the end of the Samurai and all points in between - culture, warfare, literature, and interviews. Simply stated, our mission is to bridge the gap between the popular and the academic, and to bring the world of academic Japanese history accessible to a wider audience through discussion of topics and authors in an informative but informal manner. We encourage those listeners who want to know more to seek out works by the historians and authors we reference and interview, and to contribute to the conversation. Conversely, we hope scholars can view us as a way to reach a broader, non-specialist audience and raise the bar for general understandings of Japanese history.

For our 100th episode (and 7th bonus episode) we take it live to Mifune restaurant in Roppongi Hills, Tokyo.  Chris (Twitter: @samuraiarchives), Marky Star (Twitter: @JapanThis) and Lonny (Twitter: @Rekishinotabi) get into the epic life of Tokugawa Ienari, why Kondo Isami raises his sake cup with his left hand, the burial location of Kondo Isami's father, an impromptu review of the new book "Samurai Revolution", a foriegn exchange student named Yoshi, and other completely random topics connected only by beer, sake, and giant onigiri.
