Japan: Samurai

Very, very nice postcard with a Samurai!

Samurai were the military nobility of medieval and early-modern Japan. The samurai were usually associated with a clan and their lord, and they followed a set of rules that later came to be known as the bushidō. From childhood, the Samurai were trained to self-discipline and sense of duty, together with the contempt for material goods and for the fear, the refusal of the pain and especially death.
