There is still Samurai today?
What do you have to do, to be a Samurai?



And this picture show a symbol in the background(behind the bow) what does it mean/represent?
Thanks for any answers.

Of course there's not samurai today! They've been outlawed for over a hundred years.

The symbol in the back is an emblem or "Mon".

It sounded like the "bushi" was part of everyday vernacular
so I was wondering if there where any order
that works to keep the spirit of the samurai alive, like with the European knights.

The order of Santiago is still active after more then 800 years.

You read it wrongly

"Even today in Japan many japanese call samurai "bushi"."

Meaning instead of using the word Samurai many use "Bushi".

My family is from the Hosokawa Samurai Clan

Ohh, Okay I get it.
But is there still samurai spirit, only no warriors, like in Europe?

About the clan link, it has to be a big clan or else you have a former Prime Minister of Japan in your family.

How did you read that from my post?? Well anyway Japan is probably the most traditional country in the developed world so I would say yes.

That's ture. The Japanese costume (和服)originally comes from China (mainly TANG & SONG dynasty), but they rerange it so its a bit different from the traditional Chinese costume (汉服), actually most of Japanese tradition including convenance and architecture comes from China (during TANG &SONG dynasty) but they rerange it sucessfully as waht we can see today.
