Seppuku

Harakiri (jap. 切腹, Seppuku) ist ein japanischer Spielfilm des Regisseurs Masaki Kobayashi aus dem Jahr Die Geschichte spielt während der Edo-Zeit. Die Seppuku der Samurai – der Selbstmord durch das Schwert – bekannter unter dem Begriff Harakiri, sind heute wohl den meisten ein Begriff. Daneben gibt es.

As a corollary to the above elaborate statement of the ceremonies proper to be observed at the harakiri, I may here describe an instance of such an execution which I was sent officially to witness.

Up to that time no foreigner had witnessed such an execution, which was rather looked upon as a traveler's fable. The ceremony, which was ordered by the Mikado Emperor himself, took place at at night in the temple of Seifukuji, the headquarters of the Satsuma troops at Hiogo.

A witness was sent from each of the foreign legations. We were seven foreigners in all. After another profound obeisance, Taki Zenzaburo, in a voice which betrayed just so much emotion and hesitation as might be expected from a man who is making a painful confession, but with no sign of either in his face or manner, spoke as follows:.

I, and I alone, unwarrantably gave the order to fire on the foreigners at Kobe , and again as they tried to escape.

For this crime I disembowel myself, and I beg you who are present to do me the honour of witnessing the act.

Bowing once more, the speaker allowed his upper garments to slip down to his girdle, and remained naked to the waist. Carefully, according to custom, he tucked his sleeves under his knees to prevent himself from falling backwards; for a noble Japanese gentleman should die falling forwards.

Deliberately, with a steady hand, he took the dirk that lay before him; he looked at it wistfully, almost affectionately; for a moment he seemed to collect his thoughts for the last time, and then stabbing himself deeply below the waist on the left-hand side, he drew the dirk slowly across to the right side, and, turning it in the wound, gave a slight cut upwards.

During this sickeningly painful operation he never moved a muscle of his face. When he drew out the dirk, he leaned forward and stretched out his neck; an expression of pain for the first time crossed his face, but he uttered no sound.

At that moment the kaishaku, who, still crouching by his side, had been keenly watching his every movement, sprang to his feet, poised his sword for a second in the air; there was a flash, a heavy, ugly thud, a crashing fall; with one blow the head had been severed from the body.

A dead silence followed, broken only by the hideous noise of the blood throbbing out of the inert heap before us, which but a moment before had been a brave and chivalrous man.

It was horrible. The kaishaku made a low bow, wiped his sword with a piece of rice paper which he had ready for the purpose, and retired from the raised floor; and the stained dirk was solemnly borne away, a bloody proof of the execution.

The two representatives of the Mikado then left their places, and, crossing over to where the foreign witnesses sat, called us to witness that the sentence of death upon Taki Zenzaburo had been faithfully carried out.

The ceremony being at an end, we left the temple. The ceremony, to which the place and the hour gave an additional solemnity, was characterized throughout by that extreme dignity and punctiliousness which are the distinctive marks of the proceedings of Japanese gentlemen of rank; and it is important to note this fact, because it carries with it the conviction that the dead man was indeed the officer who had committed the crime, and no substitute.

While profoundly impressed by the terrible scene it was impossible at the same time not to be filled with admiration of the firm and manly bearing of the sufferer, and of the nerve with which the kaishaku performed his last duty to his master.

Seppuku as judicial punishment was abolished in , shortly after the Meiji Restoration , but voluntary seppuku did not completely die out.

Dozens of people are known to have committed seppuku since then, including General Nogi and his wife on the death of Emperor Meiji in , and numerous soldiers and civilians who chose to die rather than surrender at the end of World War II.

The practice had been widely praised in army propaganda, which featured a soldier captured by the Chinese in the Shanghai Incident who returned to the site of his capture to perform seppuku.

Many other high-ranking military officials of Imperial Japan would go on to commit seppuku towards the later half of World War II in and , as the tide of the war turned against the Japanese, and it became clear that a Japanese victory of the war was not achievable.

Mishima performed seppuku in the office of General Kanetoshi Mashita. His second, a year-old man named Masakatsu Morita , tried three times to ritually behead Mishima but failed, and his head was finally severed by Hiroyasu Koga , a former kendo champion.

Morita then attempted to perform seppuku himself, but when his own cuts were too shallow to be fatal, he gave the signal and was beheaded by Koga.

The expected honor-suicide of the samurai wife is frequently referenced in Japanese literature and film, such as in Taiko by Eiji Yoshikawa, Humanity and Paper Balloons , [27] and Rashomon.

It was staged by the young protagonist in the dark American comedy Harold and Maude. This is also depicted en masse in the movie 47 Ronin starring Keanu Reeves when the 47 ronin are punished for disobeying the emperor's orders by avenging their master.

In the revival and final season of the animated series Samurai Jack , the eponymous protagonist, distressed over his many failures to accomplish his quest as told in prior seasons , is then informed by a haunting samurai spirit that he has acted dishonorably by allowing many people to suffer and die from his failures, and must engage in seppuku to atone for them.

Retrieved 31 March His father, Azusa, had a taste for military discipline, and worried Natsuko's style of childrearing was too soft. When Mishima was an infant, Azusa had employed parenting tactics such as holding his little child up to the side of a speeding train.

He also raided Mishima's room for evidence of an "effeminate" interest in literature , and often ripped apart his son's manuscripts.

It was the first time Mishima watched Kabuki drama. From these early experiences, Mishima became addicted to Kabuki and Noh.

He began attending performances every month and grew deeply interested in these traditional Japanese dramatic art forms.

He studied German. After six years at school, he became the youngest member of the editorial board of its literary society. Mishima's first published works included waka poetry before he turned his attention to prose.

The story makes use of the type of metaphors and aphorisms that would later become Mishima's trademarks. In addition, the story was later published in book form in in a limited edition 4, copies due to a wartime paper shortage.

Mishima published this book as a keepsake to remember him by, assuming that he would die in the war. In order to protect him from a possible backlash from his father Azusa, Shimizu and the other editorial board members coined the pen-name "Yukio Mishima.

He is much younger than we are, but has arrived on the scene already quite mature. Hasuda, who became something of a mentor to Mishima, was an ardent nationalist and a fan of Motoori Norinaga — , an Edo-era scholar of " National Learning " Kokugaku who preached Japanese traditional values and devotion to the Emperor.

On April 27, , during the final years of World War II , Mishima had received a draft notice for the Imperial Japanese Army , and barely passed his conscription examination on May 16, with a less desirable rating of "second class" conscript.

However, at the time of his medical check on the convocation day of February 10, he had a cold. The young army doctor misdiagnosed Mishima with tuberculosis , declared him unfit for service and sent him home.

The day before his failed medical exam, Mishima had written a farewell message to his family, ending with the words "Long live the Emperor!

Mishima was deeply affected by Emperor Hirohito's radio broadcast announcing Japan's surrender on August 15, , and vowed to protect Japanese cultural traditions and help rebuild Japanese culture after the destruction of the war.

On August 19, four days after Japan's surrender, Mishima's mentor Zenmei Hasuda, who had been drafted and deployed to the Malay peninsula, shot and killed a superior officer for criticizing the Emperor and then turned his pistol on himself.

Mishima heard this shocking news a year later and contributed poetry in Hasuda's honor at a memorial service in November At the end of the war, his father Azusa "half-allowed" Mishima to become a novelist.

He advised his son to enroll in the Faculty of Law instead of the literature department. He obtained a position in the Ministry of the Treasury and seemed set up for a promising career as a government bureaucrat.

However, after just one year of employment Mishima had exhausted himself so much that his father agreed to allow him to resign from his post and devote himself to writing full time.

At the urging of the occupation authorities, many people who held important posts in various fields were purged from public office.

The media and the publishing industry were also censored, and were not allowed to engage in forms of expression reminiscent of wartime Japanese nationalism.

Mishima had heard that famed writer Yasunari Kawabata had praised his work before the end of the war. The story puts forth the fictional character Kikuwaka, a beautiful teenage boy who was beloved by both Yoshihisa and Yoshimasa, who fails in an attempt to follow Yoshihisa in death by committing suicide.

Thereafter, Kikuwaka devotes himself to spiritualism in an attempt to heal Yoshimasa's sadness by allowing Yoshihisa's ghost to possess his body, and eventually dies in a double-suicide with a shrine maiden who falls in love with him.

This elevated writing style and the homosexual motif suggest the germ of Mishima's later aesthetics. The novel was extremely successful and made Mishima a celebrity at the age of Mishima enjoyed international travel.

Along the way he visited Greece , a place which had fascinated him since childhood. Although the novel became a best-seller, leftists criticized it for "glorifying old-fashioned Japanese values" and around this time, some people began calling Mishima a "fascist.

We have gradually seen this proven to be the case. Mishima made use of contemporary events in many of his works. The novel tells the interconnected stories of four young men who represented four different facets of Mishima's personality.

His athletic side appears as a boxer, his artistic side as a painter, his narcissistic, performative side as an actor, and his secretive, nihilistic side as a businessman who goes through the motions of living a normal life while practicing "absolute contempt for reality.

Many of Mishima's most famous and highly regarded works were written prior to However, until that year he had not written works that were seen as especially political.

Japan military alliance into place. Mishima warned against the dangers of the Japanese people following ideologues who told lies with honeyed words.

Although Mishima criticized Prime Minister Kishi as a "nihilist" who had subordinated himself to the United States, Mishima concluded that he would rather vote for a strong-willed realist "with neither dreams nor dispair" than a mendacious but eloquent ideologue.

Although the novel received mixed reviews from the literary world, prominent critic Takeo Okuno singled it out for praise as one of a new breed of novels that was overthrowing longstanding literary conventions in the tumultuous aftermath of the Anpo Protests.

At the end of the play, Mishima offers his own interpretation of what he considered to be one of the central mysteries of the Sade story, namely, Madame de Sade's unstinting support for her husband while he was in prison, followed by her sudden decision to renounce him upon his release.

Mishima was considered for the Nobel Prize for Literature three times in , , , [89] and was a favorite of many foreign publications. Dandy" reader popularity poll in with 19, votes, edging out second place Toshiro Mifune by votes.

In , Mishima took up weight training to overcome the inferiority complex about his weak constitution, and his strictly-observed workout regimen of three sessions per week was not disrupted for the final 15 years of his life.

Mishima later also became very skilled at kendo traditional Japanese swordsmanship. In , he tried boxing too, although he later gave this up.

However, the ruling for the plaintiffs declared, "In addition to clerical content, these letters describe the Mishima's own feelings, his aspirations, and his views on life, in different words from those in his literary works.

Mishima also argued that it was the custom of traditional Japanese patriots to immediately commit suicide after committing an assassination. As a result of this ideological conflict, Mishima quit Bungakuza.

During the Tokyo Olympics in , Mishima interviewed various athletes every day and wrote the report articles as a correspondent for newspapers.

Mishima hated Ryokichi Minobe , who was a communist and was the governor of Tokyo beginning in Mishima considered himself a fan of science fiction , contending that "science fiction will be the first literature to completely overcome modern humanism.

Clarke 's " Childhood's End " in particular. While acknowledging "inexpressible unpleasant and uncomfortable feelings after reading it", he declared, "I'm not afraid to call it a masterpiece.

Mishima traveled to Shimoda on the Izu Peninsula with his wife and children in the summer of ; thereafter, it became customary for the family to spend the summer there every year.

Why do you stay at a place with such a name? Mishima and his wife had even visited Disneyland as newlyweds, and he liked the fun park and ordinary American people after the war.

However, he clearly retained a strong sense of hostility toward the "black ships" of Commodore Matthew C. Mishima trained them himself. However, under Mishima's ideology, the emperor was not necessarily the reigning Emperor, but rather the abstract essence of Japanese traditional culture.

Mishima denounced Emperor Hirohito for renouncing his own divinity after World War II, arguing that the soldiers had died in the February 26 Incident and Japanese Special Attack Units for their "living god" Emperor, and that the Showa Emperor's renounciation of his divinity meant that all those deaths had been in vain.

Mishima felt a sense of danger regarding the lack of awareness the Japanese national defense held against the threat of the Chinese Communist Party.

Mishima's nationalism accelerated towards the end of his life. He was hated by leftists who said Hirohito should have abdicated and taken responsibility for the loss of life in the war.

Passion is dried up, strong realism dispels the ground, and the deepening of poetry is neglected. That is, there are no Chikamatsu, Saikaku, or Basho now.

In critical essays in , Mishima explained Japan's difficult and delicate position and peculiarities between China, the Soviet Union and the United States.

With a prepared manifesto and a banner listing their demands, Mishima stepped onto the balcony to address the soldiers gathered below.

He succeeded only in irritating the soldiers, and was heckled, thus drowning out some parts of his speech.

He finished his planned speech after a few minutes, and after cried out three times, Tenno-heika Banzai! He returned to the commandant's office and apologized to the commandant and said "We did it to return the JSDF to the Emperor.

I had no choice but to do this", and performed seppuku. Morita then knelt and stabbed himself in the abdomen and Koga again performed the kaishakunin duty.

Another traditional element of the suicide ritual was the composition of so-called death poems before their entry into the headquarters.

However, Zenkyoto was suppressed easily by the Riot Police Unit in These officials gave up the coup of constitutional amendment, and Mishima disappointed them and the actual circumstances in Japan after World War II.

J , and with the approval of the U. However, due to the policy change reversal of U. Mishima planned his suicide meticulously for at least a year and no one outside the group of hand-picked Tatenokai members had any indication of what he was planning.

At that time, he heard from Mishima: "Japan lost its spiritual tradition, and materialism infested instead. Japan is under the curse of a Green Snake now.

The Green Snake bites on Japanese chest. There is no way to escape this curse. Mishima's senior friend and father heard from Mishima: "Japan will be hit hard.

One day, the United States suddenly contacts China over Japan's head, Japan will only be able to look up from the bottom of the valley and eavesdrop on the conversation slightly.

Our friend Taiwan will say that "it will no longer be able to count on Japan", and Taiwan will go somewhere. Japan may become an orphan in the Orient, and may eventually fall into the product of slave dealers.

Mishima's corpse returned home the day after his death. Father Azusa had been afraid to see his son whose appearance had completely changed.

Mishima, whom we have always respected secretly. Thinking about the country of Japan, thinking about the JSDF, the pure hearts of thinking about our country that did that kind of thing, I want to buy it as an individual.

If you take a movie of a suicide jumped, and rotate the film in reverse, the suicide person jumps up from the valley bottom to the top of the cliff at a furious speed and he revives.

Much speculation has surrounded Mishima's suicide. At the time of his death he had just completed the final book in his Sea of Fertility tetralogy.

Mishima wrote 34 novels, about 50 plays, about 25 books of short stories, at least 35 books of essays, one libretto , and one film.

The Mishima Prize was established in to honor his life and works. In contrast to older groups such as Bin Akao 's Greater Japan Patriotic Party that took a pro-American, anti-communist stance, New Right groups such as the Issuikai tended to emphasize ethnic nationalism and anti-Americanism.

Apart from this, a memorial service is held every year by former Tatenokai members, which began in , the year after Masahiro Ogawa, Masayoshi Koga, and Hiroyasu Koga were released on parole.

A variety of cenotaphs and memorial stones have been erected in honor of Mishima's memory in various places around Japan. For example, stones have been erected at Hachiman Shrine in Kakogawa City , Hyogo Prefecture where his grandfather's permanent domicile was, [] in front of the 2nd company corps at JGSDF Camp Takigahara , [] and in a home garden of an acquaintance of Mishima.

A biographical film by Paul Schrader titled Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters depicts his life and work; however, it has never been given a theatrical presentation in Japan.

David Bowie painted a large expressionist portrait of Mishima, which he hung at his Berlin residence. Peter Owen Publishers , reissue due December Best not screw it up.

Also, someone's gotta clean that mess up. Well, not quite. See, the act requires a specific technique. First, insert the blade into the side of your belly, close to your ribs.

The side you choose depends on your dominant sword hand. Draw sharply across the gut to disembowel yourself, then rotate the knife and yank it up, to really spill everything out.

Seppuku - Das Seppuku Ritual

Die Ronin wurden verhaftet und mussten alle 46 einer war schon vorher gestorben trotz eines Aufschreis der Bevölkerung Seppuku begehen. He was a Confucianism scholar and teacher in Kagoshima prefecture. artelino - Seppuku, ritueller japanischer Selbstmord. i>Seppuku ist eine japanische, rituelle Form des Selbstmordes. Many translated example sentences containing "seppuku" – German-English dictionary and search engine for German translations. Die Seppuku der Samurai – der Selbstmord durch das Schwert – bekannter unter dem Begriff Harakiri, sind heute wohl den meisten ein Begriff. Daneben gibt es.

The samurai were generally told of their offense in full and given a set time for them to commit seppuku , usually before sunset on a given day.

Unlike voluntary seppuku , seppuku carried out as capital punishment by executioners did not necessarily absolve, or pardon, the offender's family of the crime.

Depending on the severity of the crime, all or part of the property of the condemned could be confiscated, and the family would be punished by being stripped of rank, sold into long-term servitude, or executed.

Seppuku was considered the most honorable capital punishment apportioned to samurai. On February 15, , eleven French sailors of the Dupleix entered the town of Sakai without official permission.

Their presence caused panic among the residents. Security forces were dispatched to turn the sailors back to their ship, but a fight broke out and the sailors were shot dead.

Upon the protest of the French representative, financial compensation was paid, and those responsible were sentenced to death. As each samurai committed ritual disembowelment, the violent act shocked the captain, [ citation needed ] and he requested a pardon, as a result of which nine of the samurai were spared.

In his book Tales of Old Japan , he describes a man who had come to the graves to kill himself:. I will add one anecdote to show the sanctity which is attached to the graves of the Forty-seven.

In the month of September , a certain man came to pray before the grave of Oishi Chikara. Having finished his prayers, he deliberately performed hara-kiri, and, the belly wound not being mortal, dispatched himself by cutting his throat.

Upon his person were found papers setting forth that, being a Ronin and without means of earning a living, he had petitioned to be allowed to enter the clan of the Prince of Choshiu , which he looked upon as the noblest clan in the realm; his petition having been refused, nothing remained for him but to die, for to be a Ronin was hateful to him, and he would serve no other master than the Prince of Choshiu: what more fitting place could he find in which to put an end to his life than the graveyard of these Braves?

This happened at about two hundred yards' distance from my house, and when I saw the spot an hour or two later, the ground was all bespattered with blood, and disturbed by the death-struggles of the man.

There are many stories on record of extraordinary heroism being displayed in the harakiri. The case of a young fellow, only twenty years old, of the Choshiu clan, which was told me the other day by an eye-witness, deserves mention as a marvellous instance of determination.

Not content with giving himself the one necessary cut, he slashed himself thrice horizontally and twice vertically. Then he stabbed himself in the throat until the dirk protruded on the other side, with its sharp edge to the front; setting his teeth in one supreme effort, he drove the knife forward with both hands through his throat, and fell dead.

During the Meiji Restoration , the Tokugawa shogun's aide performed seppuku:. One more story and I have done. During the revolution, when the Taikun Supreme Commander , beaten on every side, fled ignominiously to Yedo , he is said to have determined to fight no more, but to yield everything.

A member of his second council went to him and said, "Sir, the only way for you now to retrieve the honour of the family of Tokugawa is to disembowel yourself; and to prove to you that I am sincere and disinterested in what I say, I am here ready to disembowel myself with you.

His faithful retainer, to prove his honesty, retired to another part of the castle, and solemnly performed the harakiri.

In his book Tales of Old Japan , Mitford describes witnessing a hara-kiri: [23]. As a corollary to the above elaborate statement of the ceremonies proper to be observed at the harakiri, I may here describe an instance of such an execution which I was sent officially to witness.

Up to that time no foreigner had witnessed such an execution, which was rather looked upon as a traveler's fable. The ceremony, which was ordered by the Mikado Emperor himself, took place at at night in the temple of Seifukuji, the headquarters of the Satsuma troops at Hiogo.
