In old Japan, sexual love among the samurai was permissible, and often matured into lifelong companionships. Comrade Loves of the Samurai touches the subject of both normal and abnormal love with honesty and tenderness.
Ihari Saikakku (1642-93) was one of the most illustrious writers of Japan's seventeenth century literary revival. Money and love predominates in most of his incomparable stories.
