Photograph of Samurai Woman
This photograph was taken over a century ago. The young woman is wearing samurai gear.  Thus, it was not just during the Gempei War that women saw themselves as warriors.

    Very interesting. I’v seen many artworks with women warriors holding naginata or swords, but this may be the first image I’ve seen of one decked out in full armor.

What are your thoughts?
