Somewhere in Kyoto, Japan, there’s this man and his dog. He plays the flute, the dog is cute, and that’s how they earn some loot.

    Oh! I saw this guy walking around Kyoto last year! He’s a very nice guy and was more than happy to let people get photos of him and his little dog. He makes a good show of playing the flute too.

    So as an American I think this guy looks really cool and badass. I love a lot of Japanese style, architecture, etc.

    But I'm wondering if native Japanese people view this guy like I do, as supremely bad ass, or if they think he's kind of an oddball?

    Would this be like the equivalent of some random American walking around in colonial era garb?

    Someone could write an entire movie based on this photo alone.

    Retired lone samurai and his dog. He plays the flute walking from village to village. Until he comes to a village and while playing for money so he can find shelter for the night, he sees a group of men asking a shop keeper about paying his protection money. He intervenes and overpowers the bandits, only to find out they’re part of a larger gang that has been harassing the local villages for years and quickly finds himself with a bounty on his head.

    He vows to protect the village, despite that meaning he has to break his vow never again to shed blood.

    And why does he constantly play his flute? To soothe him and his dog. For him, the sounds of battle are constantly in his mind, drowning out the screams and horrors of warfare.

    He found the dog, or rather, the dog found him, one day while playing the flute (poorly in the beginning) while trying to find a way to focus his mind elsewhere. The dog hears him playing the flute and enjoyed it, and never left his side.

    Or something like that. Idk. Hollywood can work out the details.

    This man plays all day on his flute.

    His doggo companion is cute.

    All day long he plays.

    Doggo never strays.

    And that's how they make all their loot.
