Kagoshima Taisho 1910s Unknown
Officials pose in front of the tomb of Saigo Takamori (西郷 隆盛, 1828–1877) and his troops in Kagoshima City, Kagoshima Prefecture. Saigo Takamori, often called the last samurai, played an important, and later divisive, role in the Meiji Restoration. He led a rebellion against the newly established government in 1877 (Meiji 10), known as the Satsuma uprising. When he was defeated, he committed Seppuku (ritual suicide).
