Why is Harakiri something that family members are proud of?

Harakiri

The ritual of Harakiri

Harakiri is a ritual suicide with a sword, formerly practice by the people in Japan.

Two years ago, I visited Japan. I stayed with some friends. As they were showing me around their house, I noticed that there was a sword hanging on the wall.

I asked, “What’s the significance of that sword?” I was told, “My great grandfather committed a ritual form of suicide with that exact sword many years ago.”

Then, I said to my friend,

“I’ve been in the homes of many people in America, and I have never seen a pack of cigarettes hanging on the wall.”
