Shogatsu Jidaigeki "Fū-unjitachi, Rangaku Reboryūshi Hen" 3

The following are supplemental explanations of the story.

Kanpō (Chinese medicine) vs Ranpō (Dutch or western medicine)

Why some doctors are against "Kaitai Shinsho"? The doctors who served shogun were called "oku-ishi" and many of them studied kanpo and doctors of ranpo were in the minority. Besides "kanpo-i"s tried to protect their vested interests. In the TV series "JIN", the conflict between kanpo and ranpo is described and it was deep-rooted.

HIRAGA Gennai

As in this drama, he was versatile and had a strong sense of curiosity in everything - mine development, western painting, science, writing script of joruri and novels, and so on. However he is thought to have had no plan of making them progress and how to gain profit from them. In this respect, he was an inventor and a hero of the times but not a businessman. Later he died in jail and most of the things he invented or made disappeared after that. He was described in other NHK drama in the 1970s also.

TANUMA Okitsugu

He was considered as a typical plutocrat in Japanese history before but his achievement becomes to be appreciated recently. He was the man who tried to adopt free economy to make the defense of Japan stronger and open the country to the world in trade by abolishing the trade with China and the Netherlands only. But his plan broke down under the strict economy by another rōjū MATSUDAIRA Sadanobu.

Ryōtaku and his family

It is said that Ryōtaku had a son but he doesn't appear in this drama. In it, he loses his eldest daughter Fujiko early and it makes him devote his time to translate "Ontleedkundige Tafelen". Ironically, his strong insistence on it is blamed by Genpaku that it will delay the progress of Japanese medicine.

After the publication of "Kaitai Shinsho", his wife Tamako dies. She tells him to celebrate the kanreki of SUGITA Genpaku and the words moves him. And his second daughter Mineko, who was a cheerful girl becomes a calm woman tells him to remind him of her words. Though the women in the drama are generally modest, their words influence Ryōtaku.

As his name was not described in "Kaitai Shinsho", he was unknown for a long time but his effort was praised by FUKUZAWA Yukichi and the descendants of OTSUKI Gentaku in the 19th century. One of the descendants of Gentaku was OTSUKI Fumihiko who was a scholar of Japanese language and edited "Genkai", the first modern dictionary of Japanese.

Shinkei

The word "shinkei" that means nerve was invented by Ryōtaku and the word is used in the countries that use Chinese letters in their writing now. Until then, the word "seinyu", originates from "zenuw" that means nerve in Dutch was used.

『西郷どん』復習の投稿をアップしている一方で、『青天を衝け』の感想も書いています。またBSで再放送中の『黄金の日日』の再放送も観ています。そしてパペットホームズの続編ですが、これは是非とも来年の大河が始まる前に、三谷氏にお願いしたいところです。

他にも国内外の文化や歴史、『相棒』をはじめとする刑事ドラマについても、時々思い出したように書いています。ラグビー関連も週1またはそれ以上でアップしています。2019年、日本でのワールドカップで代表は見事ベスト8に進出し、2021年には北半球最強であるブリティッシュ&アイリッシュ・ライオンズとの試合も組まれています。このチームにいい試合をし、今後さらに上を目指してほしいものです。国内のラグビーも、2022年からはいよいよ新リーグがスタートです。
