In 1700, Nabeshima Mitsushige, the third daimyo of the area now known as Saga Prefecture, died. Yamamoto Tsunetomo, who had gone into the service of Mitsushige as a child, was prohibited from committing disembowelment in sympathy with his master'ss death by edicts both of his own fief and of the Tokugawa government. Tsunetomo requested and was granted permission to retire and become a Buddhist priest. He moved to a small hermitage about twelve kilometers north of Saga Castle, and lived there in semi-seclusion. In 1710 he began to be visited by Tashiro Tsuramoto, a young samurai. Their conversations lasted for seven years, and in 1716, Yamamoto'ss utterances, as recorded by Tsuramoto, were arranged as a book and given the title of Hagakure ('shidden by the leaves's or 'shidden leaves's) The philosophy of Hagakure represents an attitude far removed from our modern pragmatism and materialism. Its appeal is intuitive rather than rational, and one of its prime suppositions is that a person can go anywhere he likes by means of simple cerebration. One lives in the world and reacts to things around him. The question is where one plants his feet. The subject matter varies considerably, ranging from the author'ss deepest feelings concerning the Way of the Samurai to discussions on the implements of the Tea Ceremony or how a certain mansion acquired its name. The three hundred selections given here (there are more than thirteen hundred in all) represent what the author feels to be the core of the book. • Introduction • From the Chapters 1-11 • Late Night Idle Talk • Notes • Names, Places and Words
