Though it seems to me that sword on your right side, blade facing AWAY from you would make it slightly more complicated to draw on someone, because you'd have to twist the thing to get the blade on top as you passed it to your lefthand side.
Draw with your left hand. Not all Japanese sword traditions are rigidly right handed.
