小栗上野介(忠順)(豊後守)(幼名剛太郎)
Kozukenosuke Oguri (Tadamasa)(Bungonokami)( childhood name :Gohtaroh)

 小栗上野介忠順の名前・業績が知られていないのは…
           
西軍(明治政府軍)が殺害したから
明治政府が始めた学校制度で小栗忠順の業績を教えると…じゃあ、誰が殺したのとなる。
  だから明治政府は教科書に名前も業績も載せない、むしろ「逆賊扱い」してきた。その歴史が続いている。(現在も…)

The reason why the name and achievements of Kozukenosuke Tadamasa Oguri are not known...
       It is because he was killed by the Western Army (Meiji Government Army).
If they teach the achievements of Oguri in the school system started by the Meiji government, they will be asked, "Then who killed him?
  That is why the Meiji government did not include his name or achievements in textbooks, but rather treated him as a traitor. This history has continued. Even now...

■小栗上野介(1827文政十年-1868慶應四)
 徳川家の旗本
小栗家(神田駿河台に1827文政10年6月23日生まれ、1860年(万延元年)34歳の時、井伊大老の抜擢により日米修好通商条約批准の遣米使節(目付・監察)として、米艦ポウハタン号、ロアノウク号で渡米、米艦ナイアガラ号で地球一周して帰国。その後の八年間幕政をささえ、日本の近代化を押し進めた。

 慶応四年三月、幕府から帰農許可を得て領地である権田村に移住。東善寺を仮住まいとして観音山に住宅建設を進める。65日後の同年閏四月六日、西軍(明治新政府軍)によって罪なくして水沼河原で家臣三名とともに斬首される。翌七日、養子又一も高崎城内で家臣三名とともに斬首される。

 西軍(明治政府軍)は江戸から運んであった家財をすべて没収し、高崎・嶋屋で競売に付して売上げを軍資金として持ち去った。明治新政府が行った「強盗殺人」と言える。このため明治政府が始めた学校教育では小栗上野介の日本近代化の業績を隠し、逆賊視して無視抹殺してきた。小栗上野介が知られていない理由である。

 ■Kozukenosuke Tadamasa Oguri (1827 - 1868 or Bunsei 10 - Keio 4)

 Oguri was born in 1827 into the Oguri family (Surugadai, Kanda, Edo), a bannerman of the Tokugawa family. In 1860, he went to the U.S. at the age of 34 on the U.S.S. Powhatan and the U.S.S. Roanoke as an envoy of the Japanese embassy to the U.S. to ratify the Treaty of Amity and Commerce between Japan and the U.S. He returned to Japan after circumnavigating the globe on the U.S.S. Niagara. For the next eight years, he supported the shogunate and pushed forward the modernization of Japan.

 In March of 1868 (the 4th year of Keio), he received permission from the shogunate, who had decided to return the power to the emperor, to start farming and moved to Gonda Village, his domain. Sixty-five days later, on April 6 of the same year, he was beheaded along with three of his retainers at the Mizunuma riverbank by the Western army (the army of the new Meiji government) without any crime. The following day, on the 7th, his adopted son Mataichi was also beheaded along with three of his retainers in Takasaki Castle.  

 The Western forces (Meiji government forces) confiscated all the family properties brought from Edo and sold them at auction at Shimaya in Takasaki, and took the proceeds as military funds. It could be called a "robbery and murder" committed by the new Meiji government. For this reason, school education started by the Meiji government hid the achievements of Kozukenosuke Oguri in modernizing Japan and ignored and eliminated him as a traitor. This is the reason why Kozukenosuke Oguri is not well known.


◆ Brief history of Kozukenosuke (Tadamasa) Oguri

◆ The last 64 days in Gonda Village (from "Oguri Diary")…The Western army (the army of the new Meiji government) that killed him on the charge of innocence while he was preparing to start farming.
The conspiratorial nature of the Western and Tosando Armies, which killed eight of Sozo Sagara's "Red Army" as "fake government forces" in Shimosuwa before killing Oguri and his son and followers.
Yasutaro Hara, who took credit for killing Oguri and his son and followers (Link) held the third governor position of Yamaguchi Prefecture for 20 years.
「幕末の三人」
 作家島崎藤村は児童向け「栗本先生」で、岩瀬肥後(肥後守忠震
ただなり)、小栗上野介、栗本鋤雲の三人を、「德川の世の末の後仕末をよくおこたらなかった人としてよく覚えておいてほしい」と書いている。

「明治の父」
 作家司馬遼太郎は『明治という国家』のなかで、日本近代化に尽くした小栗上野介の業績をたたえ、「明治の父」と語っている。

攘夷熱の中で「外国を模範とすべし」
 
幕臣福地源一郎は『幕末政治家』で、
「使節が帰朝の時に当たり、鎖(国)攘(夷)の議論漸く朝野に熾なりければ、皆口を緘して黙したるに、小栗一人は、憚る所なく米国文明の事物を説き「政治武備商業製造等に於ては、外国を模範として我国の改善を謀らざる可からず」と論じて幕閣を聳動せしめたり。
<Three Men at the End of the Edo Period>
In his book for children, "Kurimoto Sensei," the writer Toson Shimazaki wrote that Iwase Higokami Tadanari, Kozukenosuke Oguri, and Joun Kurimoto should be remembered as people who well took care of the affairs of the end of the Tokugawa (Edo) era.

<Father of the Meiji Era>
In his book "Meiji, a Nation," author Ryotaro Shiba praised the achievements of Kozukenosuke Oguri, who was instrumental in the modernization of Japan, calling him "the father of the Meiji era."

<Amid the fervor for expulsion of the barbarians, Oguri said, "We should follow the example of foreign countries.">
In his book "Politicians at the End of the Edo Period," Genichiro Fukuchi, a vassal of the Tokugawa Shogunate, wrote: "When the envoys returned to Japan, the government and private citizens alike were in a state of debate over whether or not to expel the foreigners from the country. However, Oguri alone, without hesitation, made the Shogunate fearful by explaining the benefits of American civilization and arguing that Japan should follow the example of other countries and improve its own political, military, commercial, and manufacturing practices."

「幕府の運命に限りがあるとも、日本の運命には限りがない……」… 「費用をかけて造船所を造っても成功する時分に、幕府はどうなっているかわからない」と言った幕臣鈴木兵庫頭(重嶺・佐渡奉行)に、小栗上野介が語った言葉→参照:小栗上野介の言葉「幕府の運命、日本の運命」

「外国から買った船もいずれ修理が必要になる、造れなければ修理はできない」…栗本鋤雲『匏庵遺稿』 「すでに軍艦を有する以上は、破損は有中の事なれば、之を修復するの処無かるべからず・・・」(外国から軍艦を買っても破損故障はかならずあるのだから、これを修理するところがなければならない)

    The words of Kozukenosuke Oguri
"Though the fate of the Shogunate is limited, the fate of Japan is not..."
Hyogonokami Suzuki (Shigemine, Sado Magistrate), a vassal of the shogun, once said "I don't know what will become of the Shogunate when we will succeed in building a shipyard at great expense." Here is what Oguri said to Suzuki → Reference:The fate of the Shogunate..., the fate of Japan ..."

The words of Kozukenosuke Oguri
"Ships bought from abroad will eventually need to be repaired, and if they can't be built, they can't be repaired."
Joun Kurimoto's "Hoan Iko" (Hoan's posthumous writings)
 "As long as you already have a warship, damage is an ordinary thing, and there should not be no place to repair it... (Even if you buy a warship from a foreign country, it will always be damaged or broken, so there must be a place to repair it.)


  ◆ The words of Kozukenosuke Oguri
"A single phrase that destroy a nation is "Whatever happens, happens" and it is this one phrase that caused the downfall of the Shogunate."
Genichiro Fukuchi, "The Decline and Fall of the Shogunate"

小栗上野介・通説の誤り…明治政府が殺害し、以後の政府筋が幕府政治否定の逆賊扱いした歴史観から生まれた通説に誤りが多い

「土蔵付き売家の栄誉」
「土蔵付売り据え」

■「国を滅ぼす言葉―どうにかなろう」
There are many errors in common theories about Kozukenosuke Oguri… The errors were mostly made from the historical view that he was murdered by the Meiji government and treated as a treasonous bandit by subsequent government sources who denied the politics of the Shogunate.

Beware of Wikipedia's "Tadamasa Oguri"


The words of Kozukenosuke Oguri
The honor of a house for sale with storehouses attached.
"Property to be sold with a storehouse attched"
The true samurai
"The fate of the shogunate and the fate of Japan"
"It is worthless to pay high stipends to cowardly samurai and useless offices should be abolished"

<Kanrin Maru (Western-style Japanese frigate, launched in 1853)>

The myth of the Kanrin Maru created by Shushin textbooks・・・A mixture of falsehoods and truths taught in the national textbook "Shushin" has become a historical myth and created Japanese people who cannot escape from the mind control of "Kaishu Katsu and the Kanrin Maru."
Japanese people suffering from the Kanrin Maru diseasethe aftereffects of the Kanrin Maru myth continue after the war and are now mass-produced in history textbooks.
Captain Brook… Because of him, the Kanrin Maru did not sink. In his diary, he clearly recorded that "Kaishu Katsu was seasick."
Mistake in stating that "Yoshitake Kimura, the governor of Settsu, was deputy envoy."… In recent years, there has been a widespread belief that Yoshitake Kimura was a deputy envoy to the U.S., but...

The theories that "Yoshitake Kimura was a deputy envoy" and that "the ship on which the deputy envoy boarded was the Kanrin Maru" are false.… This theory is based on the fact that the reality of the Kanrin Maru has become known since the publication of the Historical Collection of Japanese Missions to the United States in 1961, and the image of the ship before World War II has declined. It was mainly written by the descendants of those involved with the Kanrin Maru who might have wanted to restore the ship's reputation.

The construction of the Yokosuka ShipyardIt was not a place to build ships, but a place to build "ships too."
Three features of the Yokosuka Ironworks.These features show that it was the site of Japan's industrial revolution.

Reading the "Detailed Drawing of Yokosuka" Chart
The Shape of Yokosuka Revealed by Reading the Chart
The theory that the Yokosuka ironworks were built with borrowed money is wrong: That is a theory in "Kaikoku (The Opening of Japan)," Japanese History 23 (Shogakukan 1975) written by Takuji Shibahara who misread the historical materials and it is incorrect.
Bricks: Bricks made in Yokosuka

Yokosuka Shipyard, a "house for sale with storehouse"
"The fate of the Shogunate, the fate of Japan," said Kozukenosuke Oguri.

The Strange "Industrial Revolution Heritage of Meiji Japan":How was the Industrial Revolution made with footsteps? How are the town of Hagi and the Matsushita-sonjuku School related to the Industrial Revolution? Why was the Glover residence included?

  □ 小栗上野介の言葉 
いずれこの造船所が出来上がれば、土蔵つき売家の栄誉が残せる
  母屋(政権)が売りに出てもこの土蔵(造船所)が新しい家主の役に立つ、ということ→参照:「土蔵付き売家の栄誉」
 
*「土蔵付売り据え」という言葉も別の人に残した→→参照:「幕府の運命、日本の運命」
  □ The words of Kozukenosuke Oguri 
If this shipyard is eventually completed, the honor of a house for sale with storehouses can be left behind.
  This means that even if the main house (administration) goes up for sale, this storehouse (shipyard) will be useful to the new homeowner -> see: "The Honor of a House for Sale with a Storehouse"
 
"Selling a house with a warehouse" was also left to another person see: "Fate of the Shogunate, Fate of Japan"
