Hakodate Goryokaku Battlefield - Interesting scene of samurai gathered at the Goryokaku (Five-point Fort) in Hakodate on the island of Hokkaido. The fort was the site of the final battle of the Boshin War between samurai loyal to the Tokugawa Shogunate and those siding with Imperial forces. A samurai on horseback lifts the edge of his black lacquer hat as he looks ahead. Just to the left, a warrior wearing armor over blue and white print pants sits on a folding stool. Another samurai stands at right, scowling angrily as he holds his case sword in his hand. A shot explodes in the sky beyond as clouds of smoke from the battle drift across the scene. Nicely detailed with burnishing on the black lacquer hat, saddle, folding stool, and scabbard.
