Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 16

Ellis,

As a footnote to my previous post, I have discovered that Saigo Tanomo was indeed imprisoned in Hokkaido after the surrender of Enomoto's forces at Goryokaku in 1869. After his release, the Tsutsukotowake Shrine in Shirakawa gun, was the first shrine (of a number of shrines) where he was employed. This is where Takeda Sokaku became his deshi in September 1876.

Best,

PAG
