There were some people that were curious about Takeo. They didnt know anything about him, they wanted to know about the misterious man in the Otori clan.

Tokugawa Ieyasu was the founder and the first shogun of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan, and has been one of the most significant figures in Japanese history. Besides being such a successful and powerful ruler, Ieyasu had immensely changed the way Japanese society was structured and organised. From 1603-1608, Tokugawa began the modernisation of Japan. He became the first shogun who had more power over the emperor, and started changing the ways of Japan’s trade, economy, agriculture and social hierarchy. Ieyasu’s ‘main political goal was to cut off the roots of potential dissent and rebellion’ (University of Colorado, 2015); he did so when his army was victorious at the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600.

A group of civilian leaders led by Foreign Minister Togo Shigenori hoped that the Soviet Union might mediate a settlement between the US and Japan since the Soviet Union and Japan had signed a five-year neutrality pact in 1941. Furthermore this could potentially benefit the Soviet Union since it’s in their interest to make sure that “the terms of the settlement were not too favorable towards the United States” (Wilson). However, US generals wouldn’t take the chance that the people in charge [Japanese militarists] would want to end the war peacefully especially since the US were hesitant to trust them since events like Japan’s sneak attack on Pearl Harbor that began the war (Takaki 32-34) and forcing American prisoners of war to walk almost 100 kilometers through the hot jungle with little food and water which resulted in death tolls upwards of 10,000 (Young 26). Furthermore, three highly respected military leaders — Eisenhower, MacArthur, and Leathy all thought that the atomic bombing of Hiroshima was not needed militarily (Takaki

During an outrage, Kikuchiyo condemns the samurai warriors by shouting: They're nothing but stingy, greedy, blubbering, foxy, and mean! God damn it all! But then who made them such beasts?
