Sakamoto Ryoma was a leader of the movement to overthrow the Tokugawa Shogunate during the Bakumatsu period in Japan. At the time United States trying to force Japan out of its national isolation policy, he was a master swordsman and a disciple of the Hokushin Itto-ryu. With having a visionary that Japanese people must modernize, he was recruited into an anti-Tokugawa, pro-Emperor party. In 1864, as the Tokugawa shogunate started taking a hard line, Ryoma made a subsequent negotiation successful between Satsuma and Choshu. This alliance played a crucial role in Tokugawa Shogun resigning voluntarily and as a result bringing about the Meiji Restoration. Also he he is respected as one of pioners who modernized Japan for his established the first Japanese modern private navy and trading company, named Kaientai. RyOma was assassinated at the age of 33 in Kyoto, not long before the Meiji Restoration took place, and the true assassin has never been proven in a court of law. He became famous even more after the death and being loved until now by Japanese people as a passinate leader and businessman who lived a life of full ups and downs.
