Ryoma's Hidden Room Masuya Seiemon's House gallery shop MASUYA

Ryoma Sakamoto hid himself during the Irohamaru Incident

"Masuya", which has been running a shipping wholesaler since the Edo period, stayed for several days during the "Iroha Maru Incident" in 1867, when Ryoma Sakamoto and the Kaientai negotiated with the Kishu domain. It is a merchant house. At that time, Ryoma, who was aiming for his life, stayed at Masuya under the name "Umetaro Saiya" and hid himself in a hidden room in the attic. It was April 2011 that the room, which still has the atmosphere of the end of the Edo period, was opened to the public. What did Ryoma think about there 145 years ago? Looking to the future of Japan, please feel the willingness to engage in negotiations without hesitation. There is also a select shop gallery shop MASUYA for crafts, art miscellaneous goods, and Setouchi souvenirs in the entrance soil. (Gallery is free to enter)
