The second ‘way’ must have been more attractive. Rigorous hardships were commonplace to these men, the difficulty was having, perforce, to travel beyond the borders of their lord’s domain without any protection as masterless men, ro¯ nin, in order to train very hard and, often, to test their skills against redoubtable opponents they might encounter.

The Puyo¯-Yamato tribes formed the second wave led by warrior chieftains over the next seventy years, intent on carving out for themselves territories already farmed by the Yayoi, or ‘Yamatai’, some of whom were also originally from Kara. Finding an already strongly established Kibi ‘state’, possibly founded by immigrant chieftains, cousins of the Puyo¯, who had arrived in the Japanese peninsular in the early years of the third century and established themselves as the successors of the Yamatai rulers, and fierce resistance, they were obliged to bypass the Chugoku region and eventually in the mid-fifth century, reached the mouth of the Kumano river and eventually fought their way through the mountains to their final objective, the fertile Yamato basin between the Kumano massif in the south and present-day Nara.
