龍馬伝を見ていると、大政奉還で徳川政府の力が無くなりつつあり 今後の武士の既得権とか仕事が全部なくなってしまうぐらい 世の中がひっくり返る感じで 武士が権力とか仕事とかをすべて失ってしまうっていう なんというかどんどこに落とされた
I went to the old Masataka Kusumoto mansion. Omura City in Nagasaki Prefecture is quite a local city, but…
There is a place called Omura City in Nagasaki.
If you take the highway from Nagasaki city to Omura city, you will find this “old Masataka Kusumoto mansion” in that town. I wonder why he has such a big mansion in such a country town, and I wonder what he means by saying that it is now a famous place. Well, this area is Nagasaki Prefecture, after all, Ryoma used to be a Kappo, and he is a gathering place for Satsuma and Choshu. It must have been amazing at the time. That’s probably why he has a high probability of appearing as a great man at key points.
A person named Masataka Kusumoto…
This person named “Masataka Kusumoto” was also a samurai from the Omura clan, and was later involved in the “Land Tax Reform” as a close aide to Toshimichi Okubo, and was very active. Somehow, all my old connections with him are from Nagasaki. Okubo is Satsuma and he seems to be active in this region with a connection with the Choshu clan, but why Satsuma? However, after Satsuma and Choshu, he may have been at the forefront of the trend in Nagasaki as well… Perhaps because people are needed for reform, environmental problems, problems with the flow of the times, he may have been well placed in the midst of them, but it’s an era where if he makes one mistake, he will be killed. As a result, Okubo was also assassinated.
Masataka Kusumoto was originally a great man in the Omura clan, and served the new government, and later served Toshimichi Okubo, contributing to Okubo’s reforms. He served as governor of Nagasaki, and went on to serve as governor of Tokyo. Especially in the old days, due to the reforms, especially the nobility system, the high-ranking officials of each domain would have been given preferential treatment, such as automatically becoming members of parliament or being given good posts, but even among them, talented people were unforgiving. I guess I was promoted to the top.
Samurai society did not change that much.
When I watch Ryomaden, the power of the Tokugawa government is disappearing due to the return of power to the Emperor.The samurai will lose all their vested rights and jobs in the future.It feels like the world has turned upside down. I have a feeling that “Ryoma Sakamoto”, who deserved to be the mastermind, was assassinated because of the resentment of being dropped somewhere. When I opened the lid, it wasn’t that the times had changed so suddenly, and Tokugawa was in a state of stoking the idea that the new government wouldn’t be able to govern the country anyway, and that he would be crying out for him. Changing and maintaining it, carrying out the administration of each domain, collecting taxes and centralizing the law, it’s not like the old samurai suddenly lost their jobs, but to some extent maintaining the status quo. It didn’t feel like the world had turned upside down enough to make Ryoma bear a grudge, but it didn’t make sense that Ryoma was assassinated, right? I don’t think the Boshin War could have been stopped even if Ryoma was alive. Perhaps Ryoma was disgusted and emigrated to America.
