Samural video: “Ame Agaru” Fight in the Forest

“A model of sword-fighting skills in movies!!”

An incredibly well-choreographed fight in the forest from the film “Ame Agaru” (After the Rain). The setting is Japan, during the Kyoho Era (1716-1735). Following torrential rains, a group of travelers are stuck in a country inn by flooding. Among them is a certain Ishei Misawa, a ronin, a masterless samurai with outstanding fighting skills. After he intervenes to prevent a duel between two young samurai, Ishei is noticed by Lord Shigeaki, who invites him to become the master of arms of his fief.
