Book of Five Rings in Japanese is 五輪の書 which is read gorin no sho

The Japanese book gorin no sho translated as “Book of Five Rings” was written by Japan’s preeminent swordsman Miyamoto Musashi. The book teaches the fundamentals of sword fighting and combat training. The kanji (read go) means five (read rin) means “ring”, the grammatical element (read no) means “of” and (read sho) means “book; writings”. Note that one also sees gorin no sho written 五輪書 without the hiragana.
