Like many of the warrior classes around the world, the Samurai have a certain mystique on them. As a friend summed it up, the life of a samurai is like a cherry blossom; beautiful but short. They dedicated their whole existence adhering to a strict warrior code, training at young age, serving with fierce loyalty, and charging into combat with honor. Legends and myths were built around the samurai lore, and although reality is less than ideal when the myths are separated, the samurai still inspired deep fascination. So much so that their legacy could still be seen on modern Japan, with the ideals and ethics adopted by the corporate world, and even by the common people.
