 Ospreysamurai.com - The samurai way of death
The cutting of the abdomen released the samurai’s spirit in the most dramatic fashion, but it was an extremely painful and unpleasant way to die, and sometimes the samurai who was performing the act asked a loyal comrade to cut off his head at the moment of agony.
The mention of the fact that a samurai called Uno Chikaharu and his followers were captured so quickly that ‘they did not have time to draw their swords or cut their bellies’ is so matter-of-fact that it implies that the practice was already commonplace, at least among the warriors from eastern Japan.
Although Hogen Monogatari commends the practice, junshi was the one reason for committing suicide that did not meet with universal approval.
