Bushido, simply put, means the way of the warrior.
In the 9th to 12th century Japan, these warriors emerged from the provinces and formed a class among themselves called the Samurai.
These were fighting men, skilled in martial arts that had extensive skills in the use of bow and arrow and the sword. They were also great horsemen. Their loyalty to the emperor or Shogun was unmatched. They were trustworthy and honest and lived very frugal lives with no interest in riches and material things, but rather in honor and pride. They believed that dying in battle brought honor to their families and to their lord hence, the Samurai had no fear of death.
Bushido is a code that the Samurai used to describe their way of life and beliefs. The seven Bushido codes are: Justice (Gi), Bravery (Yuu), Benevolence (Jin), Politeness (Rei), Veracity (Makoto), Honor (Meiyo) and Loyalty (Chuugi).
Here at Bushido Japanese Restaurant, we strive to bring you the best. We apply the Bushido code to our own Christian faith to reflect our honesty and sincerity to our customers. Like the Samurai whose loyalty to his master is unsurpassed, Bushido Japanese Restaurant is equally loyal to its patrons.
