To get everyone in the mood for tech weekend I provide the following links and a picture of Patrick looking like the samurai equivalent of Travis Bickle.
First a site featuring various photos of various samurai related locations around Japan at Samurai Tour.
Black Ships & Samurai provides information on Commodore Perry's visit to Japan that marked the end of feudal Japan and the end of the Samurai.
Cartoon network of course features Samurai Jack, this site includes several samurai themed games.
At The Association for Renaissance Martial Arts (ARMA) is an interesting comparison/contrast piece comparing Samurai with their Europen counterparts by J. Clements.
Midnight Eye provides a lesson in samurai movies so you can fake it for the film geeks in your life with Samurai 101.
And finally I really don't know what to tell you about this site, artelino-Art Auctions, except to say it tells you about samurai. The real reason to go is the pictures, as demonstrated to your right.
Enjoy all the links!
