A Nanban group traveling in Japan
According to Histoire Ecclesiastique Des Isles Et Royaumes Du Japon, written by François Solier of the Society of Jesus in 1627, Yasuke was likely from Mozambique.[6] Solier’s account may, however, have been an assumption, as it was written so long after the event. There is no surviving contemporary account that corroborates it.

This would be consistent with other accounts of Africans from Mozambique in Japan. According to Fujita Midori, the first African people who came to Japan were Mozambican. They reached Japan in 1546 as shipmates or slaves who served Portuguese captain Jorge Alvarez (not to be confused with another explorer of the same name who died in 1521).[7]

A 2013 investigation by Discovery of the World’s Mysteries (世界ふしぎ発見), a popular television program, suggested that Yasuke was a Makua named Yasufe.[8] This name seems to be derived from the more popular Mozambican name, Issufo.[9] This investigation did not necessarily meet journalistic standards, and the program provided little evidence for its conclusions. The Makua are not documented as having had any significant contact until 1585 with the Portuguese based in Mozambique.[10]

Yasuke may have been a member of the Yao people,[11] or from the more inland area of Mozambique.[12] Yao people were just coming into contact with the Portuguese at the time, which might account for his name: that is, Yao added to the common Japanese male name suffix of suke (Yao-suke).

  1. Interesting video to the point I never heard of him but tell a lie I have heard some Hebrew Israelites bredrens spoke on the great black Japan Warrior (Samurai)!! in their teaching!

  2. Yasuki was from the tribe of Judah he was a descendant of the black Portuguese Jews who was a branch of the tribe of Judah it's instructive to note he choose the name YAH-SUKI a popular trait of our people to always include YAH,YA in any name we choose.

  3. The Hebrew people have so many stories to tell that its mind boggling. Instead, we have movie makers like Tyler Perry dressing in drag and actors like Terry Crews being the white man's nigga bitch. This is a crazy good story that really needs to be told.

  4. We have to stop letting hollyweird to tell our stories through movies! Yahsuke was a Judahite and never a Slave he went to Japan as a Mercenary and a hired General to lead Japanese moabites troops in times of war! Our story don't always begin during slavery! Check out Hometeam History for video on YoutubrYouTube for a more accurate video story of Yahsuke

  5. Christopher Columbus Used 2 Esdras Book In Apocrypha To Reach the Western World
    2Es 13:40  Those are the ten tribes, which were carried away prisoners out of their own land in the time of Osea the king, whom Salmanasar the king of Assyria led away captive, and he carried them over the waters, and so came they into another land. 

    2Es 13:41  But they took this counsel among themselves, that they would leave the multitude of the heathen, and go forth into a further country, where never mankind dwelt, 

    2Es 13:42  That they might there keep their statutes, which they never kept in their own land. 

    2Es 13:43  And they entered into Euphrates by the narrow places of the river. 

    2Es 13:44  For the most High then shewed signs for them, and held still the flood, till they were passed over. 

    2Es 13:45  For through that country there was a great way to go, namely, of a year and a half: and the same region is called Arsareth

  6. the first ever samurai was black or african as were the first ever japanese peoples smh we taught them all those kung-fu's and they developed styles out of the root we first taught them

  7. So if the land is new to Europeans it's a discovery 😕 bet the indigenous people don't think the land is new 🔊 know 🔊 Europeans conquered the indigenous people

  8. Yasuke has no record since the war of Honnoji in 1582, but if IEYASU TOKUGAWA was active as NINJYA in SENGOKU-JIDAI until the unification of Japan in 1603, it seems to be interesting as a movie series.
