The story of Koki chi is told in an interesting way to represent the real life in the Tokugawa society that is a little different from the dull and static portrayals presented by the historians. Where Yonemoto tells the readers about the Tokugawa society and the Samurais in her essay, ‘Tokugawa Japan: An introductory History’ that informs the readers but fails to entertain them, ‘Maui’s Story’ not only informs the readers about the Tokugawa society and the Samurais but also entertains them as they tend to see the actions of a real man in the story which takes them into the era that was glorious owing to the changes and economic growth according to the historians but how it was for a Samurai is something that the readers get to know comprehensively as they read Koki chi’s story.
The book is divided into different chapters and each chapter deals with a single phase in the life of the author. It starts from ‘Childhood’ and passing from ‘I Run Away’ and ‘Youth’ ends with ‘Life after retirement’. The image of a Samurai presented by the author is the one that is more close to that presented in the comics than that of the history books. The story of this mischievous man starts and ends with the expression of remorse over the way he wasted his life but the fact is that the ease and pleasure with which he tells of the phases of mischief contrasts his regret and repentance.
