The Samurai were the main military personnel and high-ranking officers of early modern Japan. They are locally called “bushi” which can loosely mean “men who wait upon nobility”. They are often depicted as skilled in swordsmanship.
Aside from being loyal and skilled in military tactics, they are also known for their Sepukku practice, or voluntary disembowelment or suicide, to save face. By 1983, the Emperor Meiji limited the rights of the Samurai to be the only ones allowed to carry weapons in favor of the conscripted army.
