もうけたお金で 酒を飲む、各地の要人と会合し この国、日本を変えようとした。時代的には
This year we went to “Kameyama Shachu”! ! There are many things related to Ryoma Sakamoto.
I went to Kochi, but…
In addition to visiting churches in Nagasaki, I went to the ruins of “Kameyama Shachu” in Nagasaki for the first time. I like Ryoma Sakamoto, but he didn’t go to places related to him. I feel like I remember. Wasn’t Ryoma more active in this Nagasaki? Doesn’t it feel like Sakamoto everywhere? Well, he destroyed the samurai society that lasted for about 700 years, so it might be Ryoma’s label written by the writer, but Ryoma also contributed a little. It’s an afterthought, so you can make up the story any way you like, but…
Beginning of the corporation
This Kameyama Shachu is the site of the original organization of the image of a corporation. In Japan, at that time, there was no concept of creating an organization called a joint-stock company. It’s a so-called investment story. A talented person starts something, invests that capital and gets a stock dividend. It feels like a relationship between shareholders and business operators.It’s exactly the world of investors, but now it’s like “Buffett”. After all, Sakamoto must have learned about the way British corporations should be from his association with Glover, so Ryoma, who likes new things, did this. Do you feel that “Yataro Iwasaki” who inherited it created the Mitsubishi conglomerate? If it’s true, he’s an amazing person, Ryoma.

Kameyama Shachu means “Kameyama’s friends”? kana. The place where he gathered was a place called Kameyama, and although he generally sold books and dramas, he borrowed money from Nagasaki merchants with his friends who gathered at this place and did business with people in Nagasaki. In particular, it would be a shipping business using ships borrowed with Satsuma’s assistance. Use the latest ships to transport supplies procured from overseas and other places to various places. In particular, he seems to have dealt in weapons from his relationship with Glover in England, so he is a kind of Japanese private arms dealer. It’s like Rikyu in Nobunaga’s time, but arms dealers are the most profitable, so I think he made a lot of money…
I earned my working capital here.
With the money he earned, he drank alcohol, met with dignitaries from various places, and tried to change this country, Japan. In the era, we will eliminate discrimination, such as the Tokugawa samurai society, create an equal culture and free society like the United Kingdom and the United States, appoint talented people without discrimination, first gather people who can work for Japan, and give their opinions to create a new culture. We will use the funds from the business profit of Kameyama Shachu as a resource.
It feels like an employee dormitory and the slope is steep.
When I looked inside Kameyama Shachu, it had the image of an employee dormitory, but it didn’t feel like a company. And it’s Hide Sakamichi to go home drunk after all sorts of strategies. It’s a place where he gets so drunk that he can go up this hill and come back to this house. Generally, the slope is too steep. It’s a hill that’s surprising. Is it possible for a group of people in their twenties to do it? No matter how you look at it, it’s the former site of Kameyama Shachu in Nagasaki.
