I enjoyed the Shinsengumi clip. Good to see teenagers re-enacting classic slaughters! Laughing

74 Years Later, an Honor for California's First Japanese American Winemaker
By Lynda Lin, Assistant Editor
Published by the Pacific Citizen on August 3, 2007

In his lifetime, Kanaye Nagasawa brought international recognition to California wine and gained nicknames like the "Grape King" and the "Baron of Fountaingrove." Seventy-four years after he died shrouded in disappointment over racist land laws, the California city he loved toasted their famous vintner once again by honoring his name.

The 33-acre park located at 1313 Fountaingrove Parkway in Santa Rosa, Calif. was officially christened Nagasawa Community Park at Fountaingrove July 28. Dignitaries including the consulate general from Japan in San Francisco and community members gathered on the rolling hills of Santa Rosa alongside a serene lake to celebrate the dedication of the park in honor of the man who once owned the land.

***********************************************
Nagasawa was born Hikosuke Isonaga in 1852, as the fourth son of a Satsuma Clan samurai, Confucian scholar, stone carver and astronomer. In 1865, at 13, he along with 14 other Japanese men were chosen to go to Europe to study the ways of the Western world. During this time, Japan was closed to the world, so the young men were smuggled out of Japan's Kagoshima Harbor and first taken to Hong Kong. There, Hikosuke Isonaga cut his hair into a short Western-style crop, put on Western clothes and became Kanaye Nagasawa.

Nagasawa settled in England and Scotland for several years to study Western medicine before meeting Thomas Lake Harris, a utopian religious leader whose teachings Nagasawa began to follow. Harris established a community called the Brotherhood of the New Life on the shores of Lake Erie. Harris sent Nagasawa to Cornell University in Ithaca, New York to study winemaking.

Interesting article. Thank you.

The article sparked my curiosity of the climate that propelled the Satsuma to smuggle 15 boys out of Kagoshima to Europe, so I got to Googling to find out more. Rolling Eyes

I ran into a story by Mildred Howie (1996) on a memorial to Nagasawa that mentioned a written biography of Nagasawa, "Kanaye Nagasawa: A Biography of a Satsuma Student," by Paul Akira Kadota and Terry Earl Jones. I thought the article by Andrew Daniels (pdf) on the Richardson Affair was an interesting, at least to me, snapshot of the climate that likely led to the life-changing events for these 15 boys.

Several sites mention that the other boys who joined the Brotherhood of the New Life became very influential people in the Meiji government.

Not Bakumatsu related.

Nakatsu castle on sale.
The 19th master of the castle decided to sell the castle.
Original castle was built by Kuroda Kanbe a retainer of Hideyoshi.
But current castle is reconstructed in 60s and it's made with concrete.

300.000.000 ¥, that's it ? = 2.581.915,86 $ / 1.849.025,89 €... Well it could take me quite a while to earn enough money to buy it.
I hope security devices against ninja are included...

Maybe we could pool are resources. At the moment I have $5.58 and four bus tokens, I get paid tomorrow so I'll probably have about $150 to spare after bills. I think that maybe after a few years I might be able to buy the gate. Just Kidding Daydreaming

That's just over in Oita. Hmmm...I'll have to think about it. It'd be a hella commute to work here in Kumamoto, but if I could afford that castle, then I'm sure I could pick up a helicopter and crew as well....

Is there any antagonism still? Is this like "Southerners" who still complain about the "War of Northern Aggression" and "Carpetbaggers" in the US?

I think old people and Aizu history otaku may have some antagonism to Choshu.
Rumors like Aizu people are mean to tourists from Yamaguchi are urban legend.

shikisoku,

Since my reading ability is less than stellar, is that statue based off anything factual or is it just an artistic representation?
