In the Realm of Tsukue Ryunosuke

I could not resist giving this a title in reference to the 1966 film 大菩薩峠 (Dai Bosatsu Tōge), better known as "The Sword of Doom" outside of Japan. This is one of my favorite samurai movies starring the amazing Nakadai Tatsuya. It's a dark, dark story about a crazed master swordsman's never-ending descent into deeper levels of madness.


The photo was actually taken at Kodai-ji in Kyoto.
