侍|日本文化いろは事典 iroha japannet 侍の歴史は、平安時代頃に身分の高い人々にお仕えしてその身辺警護をする人達を「侍」と呼ぶようになった事からはじまりました。この時代に侍と呼ばれていた人達は武士の中でも比較的身分が高い位の人達でした。室町時代になると侍の定義は多少変化し、足利一門(※)に従う者が「侍 山本昌が選ぶ侍ジャパン最強メンバー。絶対に外せ 山本昌が選ぶ侍ジャパン最強メンバー。 絶対に外せない投打の軸は? 三一侍とは コトバンク デジタル大辞泉 三一侍の用語解説 《年間の扶持が両分であったところから》江戸時代、身分の低い武士を卑しんでいう語。三一奴さんぴんや. This novel was published in 1980 and is considered by some to be the best of the work of the Japanese writer Shusaku Endo It is a book that I review hesitantly and with some trepidation since it is a narrative that I am sure will appeal to many readers It did not to meThe plot is complex but can be rather simply summarized although I leave the ending undisclosed so as not to spoil it for those who want to read it for themselves The story takes place in the early 17th century during a time when the Jesuits had been proselytizing in Japan with uneven success The Pope then opened the country up to other religious orders and a rather fierce competition developed as to which order would have the most success Among the Japanese themselves there was much ambivalence about the arrival of Europeans their desire to keep out Westerners existing in tension with a desire for the expansion of trade with the West In addition there was competition between the Protestant English and Dutch and the Catholic Spanish and Portuguese The samurai of the title Rokuemon Hasekura is of very low nobility little above his own dependents in status or labor and he is part of and content with the enduring system of hierarchy that has extended back as long as his family can remember Above all loyalty to that hierarchy is of prime importance and is the foundation upon which his own value and dignity rest One day he and two other similar nobles are summoned by their lord and instructed to function as envoys on a voyage to Mexico ostensibly to further trade relationships Thus begins a multi year journey that ends in failure before Hasekura returns homeThe other prime character is Father Velasco a Franciscan priest who aspires to convert Japan to Christianity while also furthering his own ambition to become Bishop of Japan It is Velasco who has suggested and orchestrated this trade mission and who functions as the leader of the envoys and he is a figure who takes advantage of the Japanese at every turn rarely being honest with them but justifying all his actions on the basis of his desire to convert and this term is used loosely baptism being all he really aspires to viewing the counting of heads as being euivalent to the saving of souls although he mouths religious and Biblical platitudes at every turnThe narrative delves into several issues including the provincialism of the Japanese and the rigidity of their culture the venality of the Roman Catholics and their willingness to subvert means to ends the ends not always being very admirable and the contrast with a simple and Endo would seem to argue valid ChristianityThe book itself is well organized convincingly paced and illustrative of the times and places with which it deals However it becomes increasingly clear that it is a Christian apologia for Endo s own conversion and conviction a polemic with a message one of the things to which I most object in fiction regardless of the perspective In reading this book I increasingly felt Endo s determination emotionally to manipulate his reader to argue for a particular religious perspective and I felt ambushed and increasingly resentful of his so obvious strategy This is not a presentation that allows or even invites the reader to reflect and arrive at his own conclusions Rather it presents the story in such a way that the reader feels bludgeoned to agree with the author It is my feeling that if an author has a perspective to communicate he has every right to do so but intellectual or emotional manipulation is a cheap tactic More than sixty years ago I read Henryk Sienkiewicz s deplorable novel uo Vadis which seemed to me similarly repugnant Am I glad that I read Endo s novel No

This is a marvelous work of historical fiction I was interested to learn about the lead up to the Edo period of Japan This was a time of three of Japan s most important leaders Nobunaga Toyotomi and Tokugawa who were responsible for unifying Japan This was also when Japan shut out foreign influences and extirpated all the vestiges of Christianity This was a time of Shoguns daimyos and samurais It was an interesting introduction to Japanese history culture and religion But the story is than thatFour low ranking samurai are chosen as envoys for an important mission to forge ties with the Spanish It was a risky gambit to invite proselytizing missionaries to come to Japan at a time when Christians were being persecuted This was in exchange for a chance to establish trade with the technologically advanced Spanish So these four pawns embarked on a perilous journey than halfway across the world They saw sights and met people which no other Japanese had met before Not only were they pushed to their physical limits but they were forced to compromise on their honour beliefs even their very soulsview spoilerThe story starts on a desperate and depressing note There is a sense of disenfranchisement and inevitability for the samurais and their families They were inveigled into accepting a supposedly important mission with a hope of repossessing the estates which their families had lost The four samurai were trapped individuals They were bound to serve the interests of their families and bound to serve their Lords and Patrons They had little choice of their own How devastating and soul crushing it was for them to discover later that their mission was a farce It was just a mere decoy to learn about sailing across the seas from the Spanish It was never about establishing trade relations or opening up to missionariesThe story is told from two perspectives One is from Father Velasco The second is from an unidentified third party observing the four samurai The four samurai have very distinctive characteristics and rolesHasekura was the main protagonist He was the most moderate of the four His character seemed rather dull at first but as things got worse and worse I could not help but feel sorry for him Intrigued by the humanity of Christ he struggles with his own existentialist beliefs We get a fair dose of Christology from the authorMatsuki was perhaps the most insightful of the four recognizing the futility of their mission and pulling out halfway through at the risk of being disgraced on his return He is also perhaps the most cowardly of the four abandoning the remaining three who naively but courageously soldier on to meet their fateTanaka was the uintessential samurai He is the most honour bound all the way to his death by seppukuNishi was the most junior ranked of the four He was wide eyed and ingenuousFather Valesco was single minded and ambitious well meaning but misguided He was so blinded by his drive to establish Christianity in Japan that he unwittingly catalyzes the downfall of the samurai There were interesting comparisons in the story As for the master and servant relationships the samurai took care of their servants like family whereas the samurai were disposable to their Lords The Japanese seemed vicious and ruthless compared to the Spanish but the Spanish were probably no betterLurking in the background of the story was the spectre of colonialism It was not explicit but the Spanish would have had designs on Japan While the samurai spent time in Neuva Espana Mexico and surrounds they were not just seeing the effects of colonialism on the Indians but rather what might have happened to the Japanese if Tokugawa had not shut the doors The tales of their sea journey was harrowing I cannot imagine sailing across the Pacific or Atlantic in a small wooden vessel But while they survived the wild ocean they could not navigate the political sea hide spoiler

    The Samurai is even better that Endo’s better known work Silence As much as I was moved by that novel about Spanish and Japanese martyrs it was hard to imagine another book which could be so good The Samurai starts off very slow and the characters seem one dimensional The samurai of the book’s title is a simple peasa

    The Samurai is basically ‘good’ I should note though that I was somewhat disappointed by the style and the writing This is a story of two men one a low status samurai and the other a Spanish Franciscan missionary who has dedicated his life to christianising Japan The story is both a struggle between the two and their cultures a
