"A lowly servant, trapped by the rain, had nowhere to go, and didn't know what to do"

Rashōmon was out of the question. Taking advantage of the devastation, foxes and other wild animals made their dens in the ruins of the gate, and thieves and robbers found a home there too. Eventually it became customary to bring unclaimed corpses to this gate and abandon them. After dark it was so ghostly that no one dared approach.

He was lost in thoughts of how to make his living tomorrow, helpless incoherent thoughts protesting an inexorable fate. Aimlessly he had been listening to the pattering of the rain on the Sujaku Avenue.

The story is naturally entertaining, shining a light on the Japanese warrior attitude. Even though it isn't profound or unique, it is good fun and easy to follow, the characters go beyond simple murder mystery archetypes and all have unique and fun perspectives to offer on such a dire and dark topic. The short story does well thematically with the idea of morality and culture for this very reason, but still takes you on a hell of a fun ride through the Japanese landscape and ways of Bushido whilst not denouncing those ways nor applauding them necessarily. If you love Western murder mystery stories, are obsessed with Japan and the Samurai or just want a short fun book, read this.
