It was completed in 1755 by Toyoda Masanaga, senior retainer to the Nagaoka, a clan closely involved in the events of Musashis later life.

Masanagas work ranks with the Bushû denraiki as one of the most reliable records of Musashis life and exploits outside those from the hand of the master swordsman himself. Now, for the first time in two-and-a-half centuries, Masanagas insight into this enigmatic and solitary swordsman is available to the English reader. It throws a new and refreshing light on many aspects of especially Musashis later life—his adoption of Iori, his return to Kyushu in 1634, and of course the gestation of his great work on the philosophy and art of Japanese swordsmanship, the Book of Five Rings.
