Historical Samurai – Takeda Shingen
Takeda Shingen (武田 信玄; 1521-1573), of Kai Province, was a pre-eminent daimyo in feudal Japan with exceptional military prestige in the late stage of the Sengoku period.
Although aggressive towards military enemies, he was probably not as cruel as other samurai warlords. His war banner contained the famous phrase Fū-Rin-Ka-Zan (風林火山 “Wind, Forest, Fire, Mountain”), taken from Sun Tzu’s ‘The Art of War.’ This phrase refers to the idea of Swift as the Wind, Silent as a Forest, Fierce as Fire and Immovable as a Mountain. The motto applied to Shingen’s policies and his military strategy.
