Enjoy a bento box supper from Zumi Sushi as you watch one of the most influential and entertaining films of all time, Japanese director Akira Kurosawa’s Yojimbo. Set in the 1860s during the decline of the Tokugawa Shogunate, a nameless, rogue samurai saves a small town caught in the crossfire of two warring clans by turning the conflict to his own advantage. Kurasawa’s film inspired countless imitators, most notably Sergio Leone’s Fistful of Dollars and Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo comic series.
