“Seiten wo Tsuketsu” 8th Chiyo Eiichi and Kisaku fight with swordsmanship

The 8th “Eiichi’s Congratulations” of the taiga drama “Seiten wo Tsukete” (NHK General TV every Sunday from 20:00 onwards) starring Ryo Yoshizawa will be broadcast today. Eiichi (Ryo Yoshizawa) talks about his thoughts and applies to Chiyo (Ai Hashimoto) for marriage. It was Kisaku (Kengo Kora) who waited there. Eiichi and Kisaku decide to play swordsmanship. On the other hand, in the Shogunate, Naosuke Ii (Goro Kishitani), who became an elder, concludes the “Japan-US Treaty of Amity and Commerce”, but if the signing is wrong, it develops into a big problem. Yoshinobu (Tsuyoshi Kusanagi) and Nariaki (Naoto Takenaka) who commented on Ii were punished, and a fierce crackdown called Ansei Purge began. This 60th Taiga drama is a story about the life of Eiichi Shibusawa, who is also attracting attention as the face of the new 10,000-yen note. From the end of the Edo period to the Meiji era, while being tossed by the great whirlpool of the times and repeatedly frustrated, he opened up the future as if he was hitting the blue sky, raised about 500 companies, and was involved in about 600 social and public works projects. In his later years, he also focused on private diplomacy and was selected twice as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. (C) NHK
