Is kenshin himura a real life samurai swordsman?
The character Kenshin Himura is fictional, and was created by Nobuhiro Watsuki. However, Watsuki based the character of Kenshin on a real-life samurai named Kawakami Gensai, who was one of the four most notorious assassins of the Bakumatsu period of Japan. Kenshin's sword style was also based on a real samurai of the Tokugawa period, named Matsubayashi Henyasai.
