Samurai Archives Japanese History Podcast


 

Nov 19, 2011

On October 11th, 2011, a symposium entitled "Why Ryoma Now?" was held at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, and was attended by Chris and Travis. The symposium was moderated by the head of the Sakamoto Ryoma museum in Kochi prefecture, and the panel included the 9th generation head of the Sakamoto family, a descendant of Katsu Kaishu, a John Manjiro researcher, and others. In this episode of the Samurai Archives Japan History Podcast, they report on what their expectations of the symposium were, and what the symposium actually consisted of - and why the expectations didn't match with reality.
