In the movies, defeated Samurai often choose to commit suicide by cutting their stomach open. At first glance, it is very scary, but few people know that, an operation is also a solemn ceremony to preserve the honor of the Samurai. The suicide ritual, called “hara-kiri” or Seppuku, begins with the Samurai going to take a bath so that the body is pure and clean. They then wear a white robe and eat their favorite meal. When it was over, the Samurai put a small blade on the empty plate and wrote a dead poem “tanka” expressing his feelings and moods.
