Knights and Samurai are both similar and different in many ways. Both groups of warriors work under the feudal system. Feudalism is where the warrior works for a lord in exchange for land. They must be loyal to their Lord. In Japan, loyalty to the lord was hereditary.
intentions were to grab the characters of the key figures from that time period. So, going off of what the director says about the movie just proves the historical inaccuracy of the movie. Ever since the days of the Samurai there has been this sense of honor and virtue that you correlate with the Japanese people. No matter what they do it constantly sticks with them. Professor Bolitho says, “It’s an idealized image that’s been pushed onto the entire Japanese people.
In this society it is very difficult to find your true identity, a lot of factors come into play, whether it is people or events that you encounter. Due to the large difference in both Pashtuns and Hazaras, the idea of power plays a strong role. People with power end up abusing it, which leads to the corruption of power. The core of identity is figuring out “who am I” and learning who you are is the core of your life’s journey.
The sense of entitlement given to those in power, authority, and with privilege are often abused and taken advantage of to make use of those they have power over using these laws and constraints. The first example, the air missions, displays how soldiers in the war were constantly forced into combat until they outlived their usefulness or died. The second, shows a prime example of police brutality, which is a relevant issue today, and how those people put in authority feel entitled to do whatever they please even if it involves another person’s life. Many other examples of Catch-22 are present in the book.
What comes to mind in the 21st century when one thinks of thinks of a samurai? As is common, before delving into the real history, those in Western culture envision these extremely virtuous and selfless warriors sworn to protect those around them for the sake of honor. The media has helped perpetuate such stereotypes through productions such as The Last Samurai, and 47 Ronin. However, the Mongol scrolls compiled by Takezaki Suenaga offer a more factual view of the samurai in the Kamakura bakufu, allowed for a clear view of the realities of the time. Both sides of the government, meaning the bakufu itself, as well as the warriors who lay their life down had a mutual understanding that loyalty warranted reward.

Documents nine and ten, break down the feudal structures of Western Europe and Japan.
In 1910 Japan invaded Korea and dominated them until after World War II. Any folkloric games were strictly outlawed. ( It was so strict people were executed for treason if they were caught practicing.)

Although the main conflict of the film lies within the Japanese culture, it encompasses the loss of cultural identity, and how some Japanese choose to embrace a more modern, western culture. By doing so, it pushes the cultural differences to the
The Japanese samurai were what we all thought to be as a warrior, but there are more things to it than that. The samurai backed up the authority of the shogun and seeked their own power after being shut out of power by the fujiwara clan.

It was shameful for men of higher standing to have relationships with the lower class, in the case of Jihei and Koharu it was prostitution. In order for Jihei to be with Koharu but also protect the reputation of his family he decides a
There were many similarities and differences between Samurai and Knights, but I believe that the differences are greater than the similarities, in other other words I believe that there are more similarities than differences. The Samurai were honorable warriors in Japan that were loyal to his Daimyos. The Knights were honorable warriors in Europe who were loyal to his lord. I’m going to analyze documents related to social position, training and armor, and their beliefs. To better determine if the differences are greater than the similarities.
How would you feel if you were punished for something you didn’t do? This is what happened to many Japanese Americans. After the Pearl Harbor attack, the Americans lost trust with the Japanese Americans. There were many events that caused the Japanese internment camps, not just the Pearl Harbor attack.

Life experiences play a major role in the way that people view everyday activities and the world around them. The Japanese culture places an emphasis on respect and peace, but it also strongly encourages valuing nature. In the novel, The Samurai’s Garden, by Gail Tsukiyama, the gardens of Sachi and Matsu are similar in the way that they represent their gardener’s lives by exposing their creator’s personality through its ambience and past experiences through its design. Matsu’s garden was a living reflection of himself and his life. Matsu was a quiet person, full of mystery and hidden beauty, and he created his garden with a similar ambience.
