The Bushido Code Analysis
Kokichi explains, “I went to a brothel in Tokiwa-Cho and called for a woman to pass the time “(Katsu, 97). It has to be noted and is important to realize that a brothel is not a place or establishment that promotes womanizing but does promote drinking a gambling. Drinking and gambling are not the right code of conduct that a samurai who follows the Bushido code should be partaking in. Musui’s Story provides an excellent insight into Katsu Kokichi’s life as a Japanese samurai and the Tokugawa period of Japan. However, the story also gives the reader a view of how Kokichi disregarded and disrespected the Bushido code. Throughout this story, Kokichi disrespected himself and the Bushido code with his unlawful behavior, which is not the real behavior of a samurai of this time. Nevertheless, Kokichi forgot to address his commitments to the Bushido code not only as a young man but throughout his life.
