Kozukenosuke Oguri (Tadamasa)(Bungonokami)(childhood name : Gotaroh)

The reason why the name and achievements of Kozukenosuke Tadamasa Oguri are not known...
That 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 been continueing, even now...

Great Figure at the End of the Edo

Kozukenosuke Oguri

 日本語 英語 English 





「小栗父子主従8名斬殺を手柄とした原保太郎」(リンク) は3代目山口県知事を20年

 ■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 Mission 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.



<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」・・・ 「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) /栗本鋤雲『匏庵遺稿』

「一言で国を滅ぼす言葉は『どうにかなろう』の一言なり 幕府が滅亡したるはこの一言なり」・・・福地源一郎著「幕府衰亡論」  
参照:小栗上野介の言葉でにっぽん復興! どうにかするぞ の「前掛け」

   ◆ The words of Kozukenosuke Ogurii
"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 Ogurii
"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"
ReferenceJapan's recovery in the words of Kozukenosuke Oguri! Apron with the words of "Do-nika Suruzo (I'll do something about it)"

EThe 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."
EJapanese people suffering from the Kanrin Maru disease:
The aftereffects of the Kanrin Maru myth continue after the war and are now mass-produced in history textbooks.
ECaptain Brook:
Because of him, the Kanrin Maru did not sink. In his diary, he clearly recorded that "Kaishu Katsu was seasick."
EMistake 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...

EThe 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.

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"
