Developed over time
17th century it took over final form in Bushido "The way of the warrior"
The code of Bushido governed a samurais life
Called a samurai to be honest,fair,and fearless in the face of death
They were expected to value loyalty and personal honor even more than their lives

A samurai was excepted to be very loyal to his lord that he would die for him
Samurais poem

Thought a time come
when mountains crack
and seas go dry
never to my lord
will i be found double-haerted
Target 7
Ritual suicide
failing to live up to code of Bushido was seppuku or ritual suicide
Preserving personal honor and avoiding capture in battle
might perform seppuku to atone for a crime, a shameful deed, or an insult to a person of higher rank
some samurai killed themselves when thier lord died
that was a form of protest against a wrong or an injustice
seppuku became an elaborate ceremony
they prepared by taking a bath, unbinding his long hair, and putting on the white clothes used for dressing a corpse
they would serve their favorite food
when they were done they would take a sword and draw a circle into their stomach
then they would cut off his head
