In “The Making of Modern Japan”, Yoshinobu who was considered unreliable was recalled to Edo to handle the case of against Choshu which it tried to start Tobaku movement (305). In this case, it showed that Yoshinobu was incapable because Bakufu saw Yoshinobu as a puppet who only granted a shogun title but did not have any power to make decision. When there was a situation that Bakufu cannot handle, Bakufu hid behind Yoshinobu and pass the buck to a powerless shogun. But on the other hand, in “The last shogun”, Yoshinobu turned to be a very wise person who predict the future of Japan and he tried his best to save Japan and his family.
