Today, samurai are legendary for their exquisite swordsmanship that is synonymous with the iconic katana, and while they were indeed proficient in the art of sword-fighting, the samurai that we are familiar with today are descended from warriors who were skilled in their practice of mounted archery. That tradition never faded as the samurai grew, and for all the great swordsmen who garner mention throughout the history of the samurai, there are just as many archers whose skills were worth mentioning. One of such men was Minamoto Tametomo whose legend may very well precede the skills that forged it.


 
Masashige began as a small time land owner who answered emperor Go-Daigo’s request for military assistance during the Nanbokucho Wars. Starting as a small-time leader with only five hundred men to his credit, Masashige rose through the ranks serving as a general loyal to the emperor Go-Daigo during the Nanbokucho Wars. Masashige is most famous for his undying devotion to his emperor that persisted even through the emperor’s exile and up until his death at the hands of fellow samurai, and traitor, Ashikaga Takauji.

 Some of the most interesting tales in the samurai’s decorated history involve the ronin, which translates roughly to “men of the waves” in English. The ronin were samurai who paid no allegiance to a master for one reason or another, and as such they found their work as mercenaries. Some worked for the benefit of the people as they were hired to protect small villages or for rich men who could do little to defend themselves. Others traveled to other countries or worked as pirates.





Tametomo is said to have had a left arm that was up to six inches longer than his right, which could generate far stronger shots due to the increased distance of which he could draw the bowstring. These powerful shots would have been essential for Tametomo during a conflict between the Minamoto clan and the Taira clan, where Tametomo is said to have sunk a full-sized Taira ship merely by firing a single arrow below the craft’s waterline.
Tametomo committed seppuku in 1170 as the Taira captured him and severed the tendons in his left arm, leaving him useless for battle. In the end, he decided to take his own life by way of seppuku, one of the first samurai on record to do so.
