Tenchi Meisatsu, the story of Shibukawa Harumi, the samurai who created the Japanese calendar.
The man who created the Japanese calendar, Shibukawa Harumi. The movie Tenchi Meisatsu was made based on his life.
Engaku-ji is one of the most important Zen Buddhist temple in Japan. It was founded in 1282 by Tokimune Hojo and is situated in Kita-Kamakura just near the railway station. This temple also ranks second amongst the five great Rinzai temples of Kamakura (鎌倉五山).
Shisouan (梓想庵) is a service that let you borrow traditional samurai clothes from the Kamakura period and induce yourself into the atmosphere of the Kamakura area. Of course, katana are also included and you can even try Japanese archery (kyudo). You can also check out their blog if you want to see more photos.
That’s how I looked after being transformed into a samurai.
This statue of Sakamoto Ryōma was exposed at Minato-mirai in Yokohama a few weeks ago.
Sakamoto Ryōma (坂本 龍馬) was an important figure during the Bakumatsu period and a leader of the movement to overthrow the Tokugawa shogunate.
He was born in 1836 in the old Kōchi Prefecture and was assassinated in 1867 in Kyoto.
Today’s featured artist is Rodolfo Arana from Tijuana Mexico.
Rodolfo studied at the National School Arts/UNAM in Mexico City and has already been drawing for 27 years. His weapons of choice are ink and watercolor with a touch of acrylic and liquid pastel.
And now, his drawings of samurai are presented to you at Samurai Art!

A few weeks ago, a Samurai Art follower, Ptk DanCastro, sent me a link to his own gallery of samurai and ninja figures kitbash collection that he made himself. If you don’t know about kitbashing, here is a link to the Wikipedia article.
I personally find it to be an outstanding and very interesting work, and that is why I am sharing it with you today. Enjoy!
