What were the effects of Bushido on Japan after the Meiji Restoration?

As part of the Meiji Restoration, the samurai class was abolished and their members enrolled as shizoku under the new regime. While their ancient privileges were lost, the former samurai continued to play a dominant role in Japanese society for decades to come.

What impact, if any, did their ideology of the Bushido have on Japanese society during this period? Was there any lasting moral effect?
