[Day 25 - Early Afternoon] Iaijutsu Tournament - General Gallery (Open)

A series of tatami floored rooms ring the dojo. At any given time, wooden and bamboo practice swords can be heard clacking or the sensei lecturing students. Peculiarly enough, compared to most dojo, these sensei speak with more questions than orders. Here, one corner of the ground floor has been reserved for guests to practice their own martial arts. At the center, a larger tatami floor spreads against a short conclave of bleachers. The east wall is occupied by a trio of shrines to Mirumoto, Shinsei and Togashi. A single stone at the base marks the grave of Mirumoto Hojatsu. Akin to the shrine in the village, a banner hangs with the words "Neither Will I."

"Personal feelings don't belong in the decision making process in determining what is best for your clan, Gyushi-san", Kazusa replies simply. "Thank you for the delivery, it was received. If you have words to give on it's properties, I am more than willing to listen. It is a great honor as you have given much of yourself to the task."

He chuckles, "It was commissioned by Emma-O Soshi-san. I'm just glad they are being well received by their wearers or the parents of their wearers. Odokasu-poketto has always felt like he was a stoic man watching everything and everyone around him. I'll not spoil your fun getting to know him but I will clue you in that he has over thirty pockets on him and only one of them is visible to the eye."

"A proper description point for an item destined for many things", she nods. "Now hush, the match is starting."

Yamada waited for the fight to begin. Yukari winning would be a real boon. She noticed Haihime was also there.

Well, Kyoumi cheers for Karasu. Even if Michio glares at her.

Yukari glanced at the shrieking Crane as she returned to the stands.

I thought you were the ones obsessed with Etiquette? Don't sully your cousin's victory with a lack of dignity.

But it would be just as rude to call attention to it, so she simply took her seat beside Haihime and mediated upon her two new wounds.

Michio bows to Yukari, not the low bow of a courtier but the upright bow of a bushi acknowledging another's worth. His bow to Karasu is lower, as is appropriate under the circumstance.

Kibo bows to both competitors as they return to the gallery. A good showing by both.

I've seen things. The towers of Shiro sano Ken Hayai on fire just over the horizon. I watched Lion steel glitter in the dark near the Toshi Ranbo gates. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
