Sanada Yukimura


Last Friday I arrived quite early at the honbu. Yabunaka San and Kamioka San were there already. They gave me a nice wooden keychain representing Sanada Yukimura, a legendary Samurai of the Sengoku period. Yukimura was revered by the Samurai and considered to be the best amongst them.

(the pictures hereunder detail the 4 sides of the wooden block)

Supposedly, he was the master ninja of the famous ninja Sarutobi.

As I didn’t know him before (and I guess I’m not alone), here is the Wikipedia page detailing his life.
