Explanation: Samurai can be written in three different ways. The first one is the kanji, or the Chinese character form used in Japan; the second is the hiragana form, or the alphabet; and the third is the katakana form, which is actually reserved for words derived from a foreign language. Maybe they write it this way as well nowadays because the word 'samurai' is so widely recognized in the West. It was, by the way, in my Oxford dictionary.
