Located on site the Kiyokawa-jinjya Shrine in Shonai town, Yamagata Prefecture, this memorial hall is dedicated to Hachiro Kiyokawa (1830-1863), a patriot who played a significant role in the Meiji Restoration. Kiyokawa, born in Shonai, is known to open the Kiyokawa-jyuku School in Edo (former name of Tokyo) where he taught both academic courses and swordsmanship. He later formed the Roshi-gumi (an organization of lordless samurai) with aims for Sonno-Joi (Respect the Emperor and expel the foreigners) policy. Roshi-gumi was devided into two groups later and the one of them called themselves Mibu-Roshigumi (later Shinsengumi). The hall exhibits his letters and diaries, as well as materials related to the Meiji Restoration.

You're the one who made the Roshigumi.
There was a script for the Taiga drama Shinsengumi.

Despite the small memorial hall, the land of Shishi at the end of the Edo period is majestic. I've been interested in it for a long time, so I stopped by. I was assassinated without realizing my dream. At the young age of 34. It's a shame that this is a history-changing event.

After spending a lot of time watching it, I learned from a person in charge (probably not normally done) by giving an explanation full of Hachiro's love. Thank you very much.
