Sego-don Episode 28 Katsu to Ryōma (Kichinosuke Meets Katsu Kaishyū and Sakamoto Ryōma)

The fire after the Kinmon Incident continues for three days. The samurais of Satsuma domain cook rice balls and porridge using the provisions of the Chōshū Army and distribute them to people who are burnt out. It increases the value of Satsuma in Kyoto. They also treat the Chōshū soldiers who are wounded. Kichinosuke sees the site of burnt houses and finds Fuki who sees those who lost their families. She asks him who assumes the responsibility of this and Kichinosuke answers it's all of those who concerned the incident. After that, the order of the subjugation of Chōshū domain is announced from the Imperial Court. So Kichinosuke visits HITOTSUBASHI Yoshinobu in Jyakushū Yashiki using a walking cane because his wound has not healed yet. When he enters the residence, he hears someone raises his voice in anger.

It is KATSU Awanokami Kaishū who is in charge of Kobe Naval Training centre. Kaishū leaves there glumly but when he sees Kichinosuke standing there, he is delighted with the encounter. Yoshinobu tells Kichinosuke that Chōshū domain was bombarded by the ships of the UK, the US, France and the Netherlands. He says it's the Heaven's judgement for the domain who made trouble in Kyoto. At that time Fuki is about to enter the room saying not to take up arms again. But Yoshinobu makes his vassals take her away and Kichinosuke also tells her that this is not the place for a woman. Then Yoshinobu tells him to go to Osaka and ask Kaishū to dispatch the navy for the subjugation.

O-Tora worries about his journey to Osaka because of his wound but he vitits Kaishū using a palanquin. However, the owner of the inn tells Kichinosuke and MURATA Shinpachi that it is impossible to meet him as there are many dangerous news recently. And the trainees of the training centre includes SAKAMOTO Ryōma stay there to guard him. But he appears there and invites Kichinosuke in his room. He is against the subjugation and burns the letter of Yoshinobu brought by Kichinosuke. Yoshinobu was formerly trusted by SHIMAZU Nariakira, "mentor" of Kichinosuke but Kaishū advises him to abandon the loyalty towards the shogunate. After he left, Kaishū asks Ryōma how he thinks about Kichinosuke. Then he answers,
"He is the man like a temple bell. If you toll it vigorously, it will resound loudly. But if you toll it lightly, it will resound faintly". (*)

Kichinosuke returns to Kyoto and tell Yoshinobu everything about what Kaishū did and it makes him angry. Though the imperial order is announced, general of the army of the shogunate has not been decided yet. Yoshinobu thinks the general is just a figurehead and leaves everything to Kichinosuke. In October 1864, the army advances westward and puts up the headquarter in Hiroshima. Though TOKUGAWA Yoshikatsu, former lord of Owari domain is appointed as general, their council of war gets complicated. Then Kichinosuke orders NAKAMURA Hanjirō and KAWAJI Toshiyoshi to sneak into Chōshū domain. According to their report, the leaders of the domain attempt to comply with the shogunate. Kichinosuke tells Yoshikatsu that he will end the subjugation without fighting and visits the headquarter of KIKKAWA kenmotu, lord of the Iwakuni Territory in Chōshū.

He visits there by himself and in his ordinary clothes to reduce the risk of being killed by his enemy. He turns the letter of shogun in Kenmotsu and it says that Chōshū domain administrators must execute the three chief vassals and confine the lord Mōri Takachika and his heir. Though the vasssals of Kenmotsu get very angry, Kenmotsu shouts them into silence and accepts it. Kichinosuke then returns him the wounded samurais of Chōshū accompanied by KOMATSU Tatewaki. Then everything is settled amicably but Yoshinobu blames him who didn't attack the enemy's castle and denounced him as a betrayal.

Kichonosuke tells him that he left everything to him and the politics should be practiced for the people who want to live. Besides he criticises Yoshinobu that what he does is the corrupt politics not for the people but to protect the Tokugawa clan only. Yoshinobu is enraged and orders him to ⅽommitt hara-kiri. Kichinosuke draws a dagger given by Nariakira and says,
"This was used in my first murder that protected you, sir".
But instead of committing hara-kiri, he stabs tatami in front of Yoshinobu with it. Then he tells Yoshinobu that he will break off the relationship with him and leaves the room. While Yoshinobu resents his insult, Fuki sees him walking along a corridor.

(*) One of the famous words regarding Kichinosuke. He was full of knowledge and experiences and always answered suitably to any questions.
(**) Iwakuni was ruled by the Kikkawa clan, one of the major vassals of the Mōri clan and was not a domain but a territory in Chōshū domain. It is located in the east part of Yamaguchi Prefecture.

まず、一部の記事関連でレイアウトが崩れるようですので修復していますが、何かおかしな点があれば指摘していただけると幸いです。それから当ブログでは、相互リンクは受け付けておりませんので悪しからずご了承ください。

『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。
