Akira Kurosawa's ancestors were samurai, roughly up to 100 years before he made this film.

Bandit Chief: We took it last autumn. They haven't got anything worth taking yet. Let's wait.
In the closing moments of the final battle, the bandits fire two musket shots only seconds apart. It is clear from the plot that at that point they possess only one musket. The black powder muskets of the age required much more time to reload. This error was pointed out in the commentary of the deluxe DVD edition.
