Discover the childhood and upbringing of Kochi-born hero, Ryoma Sakamoto
One of Japan’s most beloved and influential samurai, Ryoma Sakamoto is known nationwide for his part in helping overthrow the feudal government in 1868. He was a key figure in bringing about Japan’s era of modernization, when many systems we see in Japan today were founded.
How did Ryoma become such a legendary leader? Where did he learn the diplomatic skills that allowed him to negotiate an alliance between two powerful rival clans in order to overthrow the feudal government? Although studying Ryoma’s achievements is interesting, learning about his past is just as important and perhaps even more insightful.
Ryoma’s Birthplace Memorial Museum is located in the town where he grew up and recreates the old district of Kamimachi where he spent his childhood through video, wall panels and models. Learn all about the profound story of how this timid son of a low-ranking samurai became the courageous revolutionary who helped shape the framework of modern Japanese democracy.
