BUSHIDO: WAY OF THE SAMURAI AT NGV

Bushido: Way of the Samurai is the newest (free) exhibition at the NGV.  The collection of samurai artefacts includes costumes, calligraphic scrolls, tea utensils, prints and screen paintings from the NGV’s archives, some exhibited for the first time, as well as items from private collectors.

It’s a fascinating and beautifully displayed exhibit that goes beyond the legend of the samurai and explores the lifestyle of the aristocratic warriors who ruled Japanese society for more than 800 years.
