Record of the Kagoshima Suppression, 1877 by Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)

Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Record of the Kagoshima Suppression, 1877

Chikanobu's Satsuma Rebellion Senso-e - This interesting group of senso-e or war triptychs by Chikanobu primarily depicts scenes from the 1877 Satsuma Rebellion, known in Japan as the Seinan Senso or Southwestern War, between rebel samurai and the new Imperial government. Military reforms imposed by the Meiji restoration of the Emperor in 1867 left samurai unemployed when the samurai class was abolished. Many disaffected former samurai resided in Satsuma Province and many of the battles took place there, leading to the name of the conflict. Former Imperial Army General Saigo Takamori was the leader of the rebels, but the war was short-lived, with the Japanese Army proving victorious and Saigo and many of his men committing seppuku. This is the first time we've offered many of these Chikanobu designs.
