Meiji Restoration 150th Anniversary Project "Letters from 12 Meiji Restoration Shishi" Exhibition 1st (Ninomiya Town)
Born in 1863, Tokutomi Soho recalls that when he was a young child in the early Meiji era, he "often heard stories about the Ishin Shishi" from his father, Ikkei Yokoi Shonan. Soho, who positioned the history of the Meiji Restoration as "the highest peak of Japanese history," took 34 years to compile 100 volumes of "Modern Japanese National History" in order to convey the history of Emperor Meiji to posterity.
In this writing, while lamenting the difference in generations, saying, "I'm unhappy and I don't know," the "Three Great Nobles of the Restoration" are referred to as "The Great Hero Saigo," "The World's Musou Politician, Okubo," and "Kiyoshi Okubo. It is described as "Kido".
In particular, he has a strong feeling for Saigo Takamori, and the song of Soho's later years, "I want to try Saigo-san and Sogo Umbrella," gives me a faint feeling of longing.
Fortunately, Soho learned anthropology from Katsu Kaishu, a vassal of the shogunate who had a relationship of "a lot of years of teaching closely under his knees," while Ito, the "second generation of the Meiji Restoration," who played a central role in the Meiji government. We also interacted with Hirobumi, Aritomo Yamagata, and Kaoru Inoue.
