“The Ryoma Phenomenon” – 龍馬現象 (12): Ryoma’s Killers


It is almost certain that these two men, Imai Nobuo (left) and Watanabe Atsushi (right), had a direct hand in the assassination of Sakamoto Ryoma. Ryoma’s assassination is the subject of Part III of my forthcoming Samurai Assassins: “Dark Murder” and the Meiji Restoration, 1853-1868, to be published by McFarland in 2017.
