Murata Ippai

Japanese - A samurai. Seeing a number of boys near a moat planted with lotus, he set about killing them with wild sword-strokes. Then, overcome by the heavy perfume of the flowers, he fell asleep. When he awoke, he found that he had cut the heads off all the flowers and committed hara-kiri in remorse. At times, called Murata Ippai.
