Birth Place of Miyamoto Musashi

My trip took me to Mimasaka, the birth place of Miyamoto Musashi - a legendary swordsman, philosopher, and an artist of the Seventeenth Century.  He wrote The Book of Five Rings.

Here's the monument of Musashi's birth place.

This is the house Musashi lived as a child (the current building is a re-built after a fire in 1942).

A statue of Musashi holding two swords - he's famous for his unusual way.

Pictures of Musashi - the big one is actually his self portrait when he was older.

A poster of a TV series about Musashi that was aired in 2003.

Here are more posters of older TV series about him.
