In Japan as well as abroad, the word “samurai” is often used to evoke historical images of Japan, particularly those of the Edo period. However, due to being an internationally recognized term, the denotation and subsequent associations of the word vary greatly. Edo-Tokyo Museum’s exhibition offers incredible insight on the prominence of the samurai “warrior” class and its place within the shogun-dominated environment of premodern Japan – the source of contemporary impressions of the samurai warrior.
