Thank you for delivering useful background information to those unfamiliar with the Bushido. I’m sure people will appreciate this, when they drop by. And you’re right. The Japanese text goes more into detail, as to say a Samurai’s honor depended on him honoring his family, his lords and himself.

I also recommend the 赤穂事件 (Akou-Jiken) it’s a wonderful example of honor and the impact it had.

I’m happy that you loved this little piece I wrote. Thank you so much.

All the best to you. Greetings from Japan 😊
