"Even if my body decays in Musashi, I want to keep only the Yamato soul."


It is a phrase of the death poem of Shoin Yoshida.

Shoin Yoshida


The phrase of death poem is a waka poem written before the samurai died.
Shoin Yoshida was an educator 150 years ago, and trained many disciples to become prime ministers and revolutionaries of Japan later.
Shoin Yoshida himself has a revolutionary idea and works to overthrow the Edo Shogunate, which ruled Japan at that time, but in the end he is executed.
Such a Japanese poem by Shoin Yoshida became a shirt.
Well … it's bad for Shoin, but it's "bad"

"I will wash Japan once again"
This is the word of Ryoma Sakamoto, a samurai from the Edo period and a revolutionary who opened up the next era.

Ryoma Sakamoto

Ryoma Sakamoto is a very popular samurai in Japan, and Ryoma was the one who created the opportunity to defeat the Edo Shogunate.

It is such a quote of Ryoma Sakamoto.
After all … "It's not good"
