I've seen that picture along with a picture of the blade in the persons stomach (which i'm assuming you left out for that reason?). I wasnt sure if they were real images but I have been told they are, still to be 100% confirmed though.
my computer has several hundred paintings, photo's and images of samurai and samurai life...plus general shots portraying japan while it was still a feudal country.

Not wishing to sound sick here but I would like to see the "knife in the stomach photo" as I have read that this photo relates to a Mejii Period Court Hearing. Obviously the Mejii period outlawed the use of swords so Seppuku went with it.
If anyone has a copy of this photo please e-mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks in advance

Thanks for that!
I find the whole concept of hari kiri and seppuku fascinating.
It is quite daunting that someone can kill themselves in this manner and it is considered a good thing.
You must have respect for people of this standing.
