“Tomoe Gozen” (1890), Adachi Ginko (active 1874-1897)
Tomoe Gozen fought during the Genpei war between 1181-1184. Serving under Minamoto no Yoshinaka, she was one of his most trusted commanders. She was said to have superb skill with the bow as well as the sword.
I think so! I am the worst at tagging, but I do recall at least some Japan inspired ladies. Onna-bugeisha are super cool and badass. Here’s a picture of Tomoe Gozen, the most famous onna-bugeisha
Gotcha covered! My tags aren’t as consistent as I’d like them to be, but if you check the #lady samurai, #onna bugeisha, and #samurai armor tags, I’d bet you’ll find something of interest. My friend @wearesamurai should also have a ton of male or female Japanese knights as well.
