"Outside of Japan, people think Bushido is synonymous with harakiri. Actually, the meaning of Bushido is to achieve something in this world and then to be able to throw away your body and accept death. But this concept is very easily misunderstood. It’s really quite different from just going out and dying. If you fail to achieve something and say, ‘Oh, I must kill myself’, it’s not a very productive way of thinking. Bushido rejects that irresponsible way of thinking."
