Depends on the terrain.

If plenty of food and water then always elephant all the time.

If not then camel.

Never horse. Don't need to go anywhere fast. When I get there I get there hard and everyone knows I have gotten there. No need to hurry.

I think I'd go with the elephant.

They make excellent pack animals, they're the smartest of the three(you can train elephants to do just about anything, to include massage), sheer intimidation factor if it comes to battle, they're really damn tough even without armor, they have a smooth ride, and unlike horses(can't speak for camels), they can go all day with me riding instead of having to climb down and walk them during longer journeys.

They take a bit more to care for than horses or camels, but unless you plan on going somewhere they don't like(don't think they like cold, but they live in both jungles and deserts), they fit in just fine.

Women used the naginata, silly. Its sweeping attacks can keep several people away.

Bokken =/= Katana
The only time they would use the katana as a primary weapon was duels and if they end up fighting without being able to prepare for it.
The katana is a status symbol. You don't want it possibly getting all fucked up in combat, after all, and there are more effective weapons that you could be using, like any given polearm or a bow or an arquebus.

During peace time katanas were like guns today. That's also why you don't see Musashi full armored.

A bokken is a katana with a handicap for when you're just that good.

Anyways, you're forgetting that people are people, not robots, and people have pride, especially ones raised in an elitist warrior culture.
Even if a spear seemed more useful, I'm sure there were plenty of men in the past who used their swords right away because swords are manlier.

They're also not stupid. For all their "muh honor", samurai were pragmatic as fuck. When the Europeans came along, they gobbled up Portuguese plate mail (Which they then dressed up to look like traditional Samurai armor) and guns like it was candy.

Yeah, they we're like any other culture, if they saw something better they copied it and adapted to their culture.

Also the deadliest bird on the planet, although I doubt it could swing its sword-like talons while mounted.

Okay, time to spitball.

How about a cozy, two floor cottage with all your party's stuff, but on tank treads?

Nope, ostrichs are deadlier according to their kill count, although casowaris are indeed waaay more aggressive, and intelligent.

Triple-headed monolith man which is a fragment of Danak, the senseless, blind, mute child who dreams the universe. His father, Rorshcka, bear resemblance to the steed, but Danak's imagination omits the face of the universal-godsoul that lies on the monolith man's chest. On the monolith man, only a slight, heavenly glow shows where the face usually is.

The rider sits atop the central head and screams at the monolith man into submission and action.

Is it original?
