Miyamoto Musashi, Date Masamune, and Minamoto no Yoshitsune are three of the most renowned samurai in Japanese history; their deeds have been declaimed in dozens of books, movies & games, increasing their popularity to the people at all latitudes.
Anyway, what the majority don’t know is that throughout the history of Japan some foreigners served under the flag of one or the other clans. Among these quite obscure warriors; a prominent place is occupied by the British William Adams, the Dutch Jan Joosten van Lodensteijn, and above all the Mozambican Yasuke!
According to the chronicles of the time, Yasuke arrived in Japan in the second half of the 16th century to accompany the Jesuit missionary Alessandro Valignano as an inspector of the missions in the East Indies. A few years later he reached Oda Nobunaga eliciting curiosity; in fact, Nobunaga initially thought that Yasuke’s skin was colored by ink. This is a short description of the meeting how is reported in the Lord Nobunaga Chronicle: “On the 23rd of the 2nd month, a black page came from the Christian countries. The man was healthy with a good demeanor and Nobunaga praised Yasuke’s strength. Nobunaga’s nephew gave him a sum of money at this first meeting”.
Soon after the Nobunaga’s death, Yasuke join his heir’s army to avenge him fighting against Akechi Mitsuhide; unfortunately, he has been captured and then confined in the Christian church of Kyoto. After this event, the life of Yasuke is lost in time…
Thanks to him the legacy of non-japanese samurai warriors continued until today, and without any doubt, the greatest series who portrays a large number of foreigner bushi in a very mythical way is Samurai Spirits, or as it is more popular in western countries Samurai Shodown.
