Bushi (武士, Bushi) - A term for the buke class in pre-industrial and feudal Japan.

BUSHI: "Warrior". This was the name given to the ancient Japanese soldiers from traditional warrior families. The Bushi class was developed mainly in the north of Japan. They formed powerful clans, which in the 12th Century were against the noble families who were grouping themselves to support the imperial family who lived in Kyoto.

Samurai was a word used by the Kuge; warriors preferring the word Bushi.

The term Bushido is derived from this term. The mansion of a warrior is called Bukeyashiki
