Samurai: The Weapons and Spirit of the Japanese Warrior
Following tachi , it was used by samurai in feudal Japan and worn with the blade facing upward. Also, since the Muromachi period , many old tachi were cut from the root and shortened, and the blade at the root was crushed and converted into katana. As Japanese does not have separate plural and singular forms, both katanas and katana are considered acceptable forms in English. The katana is generally defined as the standard sized, moderately curved as opposed to the older tachi featuring more curvature Japanese sword with a blade length greater than With a few exceptions, katana and tachi can be distinguished from each other, if signed, by the location of the signature mei on the tang nakago. In general, the mei should be carved into the side of the nakago which would face outward when the sword was worn. Since a tachi was worn with the cutting edge down, and the katana was worn with the cutting edge up, the mei would be in opposite locations on the tang.
Characterization of Japan as martial, as opposed to a China emphasizing civil virtues, has colored views of both societies for centuries. In China, bushido , or wushidao , played an important role in shaping views of Japan from then on; expansion and popularization of bushido coinciding with a huge influx of Chinese students, reformers, and exiles to Japan. Chinese intellectuals credited bushido with driving the Meiji Restoration and subsequent reforms, while students at Japanese civilian and military schools were exposed to the then-pervasive bushido ideology. This characterization has colored views of the two societies for centuries, reinforced by apparent differences in their traditional forms of premodern government, with Japan ruled by warriors while China maintained a scholarly examination system. Individuals who domestically criticized or dismissed these traditional thought systems as irrelevant to modern China often continued to claim them defensively as part of a broader Chinese heritage that had supposedly been appropriated by Japan. These responses, which were also conditioned by shifts in Sino-Japanese relations, can help trace the ebb and flow of cultural nationalism and notions of Chinese identity over the past century.

They were the well-paid retainers of the daimyo the great feudal landholders. They had high prestige and special privileges such as wearing two swords. They cultivated the bushido codes of martial virtues, indifference to pain, and unflinching loyalty, engaging in many local battles. During the peaceful Edo era to they became the stewards and chamberlains of the daimyo estates, gaining managerial experience and education. The Meiji Revolution ended their feudal roles, and they moved into professional and entrepreneurial roles. Their memory and weaponry remain prominent in Japanese popular culture.
