ABOUT SAMURAI SPIRIT
Bushido is not about fighting.
Bushido is not about competing.
Bushido is not only about skills.
Bushido is the respect of the existence of human life itself of “maintaining one’s dignity, while also maintaining the dignity of others.” This is something the people who fought for their lives in the Warring States Period found.
This “way of the mind” many samurais acquired in the midst of life and death, is still inherited here, in the land of Aizu in every “way.”
