Even on Easy i suggest you do some prep work to make the game much easier. The game itself is pretty simple but if you end up in a fight with key characters, they are very good, have powerful weapons and spammy juggle moves.

Prep 1: Samurai Points
Do the Vegetarian trick detailed below to get 10,000 Samurai Points.

Prep 2: Money
You need to complete jobs. I suggest doing atleast 4 jobs for each of the 4 factions (until they give you 400Yen a job). You'll need about 5,000 to 10,000Yen. Below is the guide to Jobs. Loot bodies for extra stuff aswell.

Prep 3: Weapon
You'll need a good weapon. Here are a few worth grabbing;
Shinnosuke's Oborozukiyo - He is found inside Castle Amana at Day or at Kuchihagahara at Night.
Kirie's Kuro-tonbo - He is found at Castle Amana
Yuma's spear - Castle Minari
Sensei's wooden sword - Found at Guard Gate's dojo.
Also these common weapons are very good. Amanojaku, Houzuki and Shirai-tou. These are found at the Castle Amana Tournament and at Kuchihagahara.

I'd suggest Shinnosuke's weapon, it's a great weapon.

Prep 4: Weapon levelling
You need atleast 5,000Yen and your weapon of choice.
SAVE always before upgrading, if you don't like it, then Quit and Reload.
Go to the Blacksmith in Takatane or Omiki.
Upgrade your weapon and choose Random. This'll upgrade both Attack and Defense at the same time BUT may create negative effects (it's why we SAVE).
Try and get a nice positive effect (you'll want about an average +10 [+6Atk, +4Def etc] increase)
Kill the Blacksmith for your money back. He's tough, so make sure you have plenty of Radish to heal.
When you have your money, Leave Amana to Reset your story and start again with your Money and your upgraded weapon.
Repeat until your weapon is 5 past the Max Quality. So 8/3 or 10/5 Quality.
My first weapon finished 110Attack and 90Defense.
Don't worry about Durability aslong as it's 3 or 4.

Prep 5: Skills and Health
You can upgrade skills by using your new powerful weapon or by doing a similar trick with Merchants in Posting Station.
One Merchant has Skill Scrolls called; Scroll: Basic/Advanced/Special.
Keep buying these and killing the Merchant for your money, Leaving Amana and repeating.
When your weapon is Maxed with skills, the other Merchant carries Ancient Beads that add+100 health at 1500Yen each.
You can buy a bunch of these but 1000health is enough with a top weapon.

Now your ready to really romp through the stories. I suggest doing;

True Ending on Easy
120% Samurai run on Normal
Then you can do whatever on Hard, i suggest Ending 7
and finally Instant Kill
