Rikyu,master of a tea ceremony,is one of the supporting character on this TV show.
He served Lord Hideyoshi,as a close advisor.
Rikyu pursued "Wabi-Sabi",which means simplicity,calmness,modesty.
But his Lord Hideyoshi was showy man,he didn't like Rikyu's style.
There is a feud between Rikyu and Hideyoshi,
And finally,Hideyoshi ordered Rikyu hara-kiri.(Rikyu died in 1591.)
This is a famous historical incident in Japan.
Rikyu was so influencial man,so he was always a menace for Lord Hideyoshi.
I'm not sure if I can see this story on Sanada-maru.
I'm looking for watching it on this Sunday.
