If you are also fond of Japanese action movies, then definitely watch Samurai Yodawa movie. The art of wielding a sword as sharp as lightning, capable of piercing anything. This image of the samurai lifestyle of ancient Japan is still fresh in everyone’s mind. But there was another aspect to this lifestyle.
This group of warriors also specialized in literature, calligraphy and flower decoration. Love for nature was not only a part of his life but also the essence of life. Tokyo’s ‘Ichidai Jidaigumi’ is once again showing the same images of samurai’s love for nature on the streets. The theater group was previously known to perform samurai fencing. But today social media and local media in Japan have dubbed him the ‘Samurai of Cleanliness’.
Members of the group are seen picking up garbage in the streets of Tokyo with the help of 1 meter long tongs. Tongs are used in the same way as the samurai sword ‘Katana’. During a conversation with Dainik Bhaskar, members of the group told that some members of the group had gone to the park two years ago. An elderly woman was collecting garbage.
Seeing this this thought came to his mind. Not only do people associate samurai tradition with fencing, but their resemblance to nature was an important aspect of their culture. Seeing the harmony of nature and samurai culture, members of the group took up tongs instead of swords and reshaped the scavengers. According to the members of the group, the aim of their campaign is to change the mindset of the people.
Started in the city of Shibuya, Tokyo’s busiest, followed by the busiest Shibuya area of Tokyo. Instead of the costumes worn during the performance, they wore simple kimono similar to the ‘traveller samurai’ identity. By tying a basket on his back and collecting rubbish, he immediately came to the attention of the people.
