In our new animated historical documentary we will tell the story of the first foreign samurai in Japan, the man from Africa, they called Yasuke. He traveled to Japan with the Portuguese missionaries and played an interesting role in the Sengoku Jidai period and in the life of the daimyo Oda Nobunaga.

For the past 850 years, the Ogasawara family has been teaching the ancient samurai ritual of yabusame—a style of combat involving archery on horseback. Kiyomoto Ogasawara is the 32nd generation of the Ogasawara clan to share his knowledge at the school, which currently has about 700 students. By day, Kiyomoto has a demanding career in medicine, but he still finds time to serve as headmaster of the school. For him, there is great satisfaction in providing a place for Japanese people to learn about their cultural identity.
