The real face of the hero that everyone knows, but no one knows.
The year is 1874. A group photo taken at the Ministry of the Army. The people in the photo were Aritomo Yamagata, Kaishu Katsu, and other ex-commanders. One of them is said to be Takamori Saigo. However, he did not look anything like the person in the photo. Is it really Takamori Saigo? A historical mystery that draws out the truth through diligent research and verification.
