Sensei Barako

Barako changed dramaticcally, she recanted her violent ways and took up the Tao with new fervor. She was selected to manage Shiro Hanamidoki in 1164. Barako taught her students the power of peace and goodwill. [1]

Asahina Peaceful Ways Edit

Daidoji Itoru carried a message from Daidoji Daimyo Daidoji Kikaze to sensei Barako. He was rebuked by her, who delayed the delivery of the message until Itoru could find a place to store his daisho. Barako considered an insult to bring blades to the sacred grounds of the Asahina. [2]

Topaz Championship Edit

In 1165 Barako was at Tsuma to officiate over some of the rituals of the Topaz Championship who was finally won by Doji Domotai. [3]
