Minamoto Yoshitsune and BENKEI are historical figures of mythical proportion. Much of the early part of Japanese feudal history is dominated by the struggles between the powerful Taira and Minamoto clans. Yoshitsune was a talented and well-trained young prince in the Minamoto clan. While traveling the country, he encountered Benkei, a rogue monk who had taken possession of a bridge, and refused to let anyone pass without paying a duty. Benkei held samurai in disdain, as few of them, in his judgment, had earned the privilege of being in a position of power. He had, over the course of time, acquired a large cache of weapons from the many samurai he had defeated at the bridge. But in his battle with Yoshitsune, Benkei had found his match. After hours of struggle with no winner, Benkei decided that he had finally met a man worthy of the title of samurai. He resolved to serve Yoshitsune, and many gallant deeds are attributed to the two men. The adventures of Yoshitsune and Benkei are the stuff of children’s stories, and the two are considered a shining example of idealism and loyalty.
