Kochi Prefecture Sakamoto Ryoma Memorial Museum Born in Tosa, Ryoma Sakamoto (1835 - 1867) was active at the end of the Edo period, when Japan was striving to become a modern nation. Although he fell before achieving his goals, there is no doubt that his efforts to realize the Satsuma-Choshu Alliance and the Taisei-hokan (formal restoration of political authority to the Emperor) brought about the birth of a new Japan. This museum is involved in the research of Ryoma Sakamoto and the Meiji Restoration, as well as the gathering, preservation, and display of related documents and materials. Through special exhibits and educational projects, we hope to help people learn more about and become familiar with Ryoma Sakamoto.
