A special B-day gift I finally took in for framing.
An original print by Utagawa Kuniyoshi, (Japanese, 1797-1861), of Chibata Shurinoshin Tatsuie, a powerful 16th century warlord in Owari Province. Ordered to guard Chokoji Castle while his master Nobunaga was away campaigning, Katsuie and his 400 men were besieged by Rokkaku Yoshikata's 4000 troops, who quickly cut the aqueduct supplying water to the fortress. When the water supply dwindled, Katsuie gathered his men and destroyed the few remaining water jars, declaring that a quick death in battle was better than a slow death by thirst. They then launched a surprise assault against their attackers, successfully driving them off. Chibata strikes a dramatic pose, leaning on his spear and standing with one foot on a large broken clay water jar, the shards scattered on the ground around him.
"I've never been angry to have been born a woman. I see being a woman as a challenge I must fight. Like being born under a stormy sky. Some people are lucky enough to be born on a bright summer's day. Maybe we were born under clouds. No wind. No rain. Just a mountain of clouds we must climb each morning so that we may see the sun."
This beautiful book full of such amazing atmosphere and vivid settings (AND THE FOOD OMG). I felt like I was THERE. I'm always happy with books that do that.
My only complaint is that it seemed very rushed. There could have been so much more character building and scene descriptions and time jumps that I would have had liked to spend more time on.
But nevertheless, an enjoyable read. Has anyone else read it yet? What did you think?
If Assassin's Creed will be set in Japan by next year, this would be the main character in the game. A samurai turned ninja assassin to use the art of ninjutsu against the might of the Templars, who are a rival samurai army with top rank lieutenants and general. His name is Hattori Hanzō. And he could be out for revenge against his honour. And when you're in Japan, honour is very serious! #AssassinsCreed#AssassinsCreedMemories#FeudalJapan#HattoriHanzō @assassinscreed_us @ubisoft

Shogun assassin story.
When I was little, my father was famous. He was the greatest Samurai in the empire, and he was the Shogun's decapitator. He cut off the heads of 131 lords for the Shogun. It was a bad time for the empire. The Shogun just stayed inside his castle and he never came out. People said his brain was infected by devils, and that he was rotting with evil. The Shogun said the people were not loyal. He said he had a lot of enemies, but he killed more people than that. It was a bad time. Everybody living in fear, but still we were happy. My father would come home to mother, and when he had seen her, he would forget about the killings. He wasn't scared of the Shogun, but the Shogun was scared of him. Maybe that was the problem.
We do have a lot in common. The same earth, the same air, the same sky. Maybe if we started looking at what's the same instead of always looking at what's different, well, who knows? 🌄🌌🏞 #pokemon#cosplay#feraligatr#gijinka • 📷 @dtjaaaam
