A MONTHLY JOURNAL OF 
ORIENTAL ART 



The KOKKA has stood, and will 
always stand, unrivalled in the quality 
of the pieces presented, as well as in 
the craftsmanship shown in their re- 
production. Especially in chromoxy- 
lographic art no such triumphs have 
ever been scored as by the engravers 
and pressmen in the KOKKA 'S ser- 
vice. Not merely in point of beauty 
of finish, but likewise in fidelity to the 
originals, such colour prints as enrich 
the pages of our journal are absolutely 
unsurpassed. The KOKKA was at first 
a sealed book to Occidental readers so 
far as its letterpress was concerned, 
which fact no doubt detracted much 
from their interest in it. But com- 
mencing with No. 133 a special edition 
was issued partially in English, and 
continued up to No. 181. The growing circulation among foreign subscribers, 
however, has finally called forth the present edition with all the reading mat- 
ter in English. We hope that the KOKKA in its new form may find a place 
in the home of every lover of art in foreign communities.

The first edition of "Who's Who in Japan" lefi 
much to be desired from many points of view and I am 
not claiming that this ivolume is complete or that it, i^ 
free feom defects. In the nature of things a work of 
kind can only progress slowly towards perfection, 'and ma- 
naging and editing it quite alone under difficult circum!!- 
tances it is beyond my power to bring forth ti-' perfect 
volume so early.. . . ; ■ . , •• .. , 

Regarding foreign residents it was niy first intention 
to; put as many as possible of their names in a directory 
for public interests, apart from the standard of qualifications 
under which the Japanese names were : chosen. Y"et the 
necessary informations for the biographies of the majority 
were not procurable. Consequently it is unavoidal:}le that 
some of the prominent persons eligible for inclusion in a 
work of this kind have been unfortunately omitted. In 
reference to the names of Koreans, though - we have the 
necessary materials for them I came to the ronclnsion it 
was not very important to insert their names in this valu- 
me. If, however, it is found necessary they will be inclu- 
ded in future editi<ms. 

I am deeply grateful to those who have kindly fm'- 
nished valuable information for this work.

the nth m. of the 6th j^. 'of 
Tempo (1835) in the province 
- of Nagato ; 2nd s. of Mitsu- 



suk^e Inouye,; samurai of- 
Choshij clan ; m'.. Take-ko, 
sister of Baron Tadazumi 
Nitta.' Emerging from-, his 
native province,, at the end 
of the. Tokugawa govern- 
ment, the Marquis, who was 
then known 'by the name of 
Monta Inouye, in company, 
with his elder brother Iku- 
taro Inouye, went up to 
Kyoto and joining there a 
group of partriots from vari-. 
ous clans earnestly advocated 
the principle of exclusion 
of toreigners. On hearing 
that the government . of 
Tokugawa ' wa;s ■ going to 
sanction the' construction of 
foreign Legations at Goten- 
yama, Takanawa, Tokyo, h-e 
and his bosom friend the 
late Prince Ito lodged a 
strong protest against it and 
when they found that the 
construction of the English 
Legation at that place had 
become an accomplished fact 
as a .last . resort set the 
building on fire- on the night 
of the 1 2th of .Dec. 1862. 
Later their "anti-foreign ideas 
reached a climax and wishr 
ing to put them . into effect 
they, with Yozo Yamao and 
others, went to Yokohama to 
buy arms and ammunition • to 
prepare- for. the i execution of 
their plans. In the mean- 
time, the Marquis, thinking

that the execution of the 
principle of exclusion of 
foreigners could not success- 
fully be executed without a 
knowledge ^{ the actual con- 
ditions of foreign powers, 
repaired to Nagasaki and 
fortunately managing to get 
on board a British schooner 
then lying in' the , harbour 
was finally taken to England. 
On reaching London, he 
instantly perceived the ab- 
surdity of his anti-foreign 
ideas and soon became a 
zealoiis admirer of wei^tem 
civilization. He remained 
there for about a year, when 
learning from the London 
Times that the British squa- 
dron was going to bombard 
the port, of Shimonoseki he 
immediately left London and 
returned home in June, 1864. 
He at once presented a 
memorial to his feudal lord, 
arguinjT the advantageousness 
of making peace with foreign 
powers. But, though this 
memorial had a favourable 
effect, he became an object 
of hatred to his former com- 
rades who were still holding 
strong anti-foreign ideas. 0« 
one occasion he was waylaid 
by some of them and severely 
wounded in the , face arid 
back. Subsequeiifly he took 
an active parts in. the battles 
of Choshu and Fiishimi, 



Soon after the Restoration, 
he was made Councillor of 
state and then Minister of 
Finance which post he resigned 
in 1873 owing to the difference 
of opinion between himself 
and the other Ministers of 
State in connection ' with the 
so called Seikanron (a mo- 
tion to send a punitive army 
X6 Korea). In 1875, he was 
appointed a member of the 
Senate ; was sent to England 
to investigate the system of 
public accounts in 1878; be- 
came Minister for Industry 
and, in the following year. 
Minister of Foreign affairs in

Tokyo and studied there for 
a year ; on returning to his 
native place was arrested for 
a political offense and for 
forty days was imprisoned. 
Later, he suffered from sick- 
ness and was converted by 
his Christian physician. He 
then went to Okayama and 
entered the Public Medical 
School there. While study- 
ing at school he was assist- 
ing an oi'phan. He made 
up his mind to give his life 
to orphanage work while pre- 
paring for his final examina- 
tions. Against his friends' 
advice, he burnt all medical 
books and notes, and organ- 
ized the Okayama Orphan 
Asylum. During tlie last 
twenty five years has met many 
difficulties and hardships in 
bringing the institution to its 
pi-esent -SotirisMng condition. 
The orphanage is now well 
known allover Japan as a mod- 
el institution of its kind. Many 
children have been educated 
in this orphanage. His man- 
puku (full stomach) principle 
is very famous. It is said 
that he will present the 
institution to the Imperial 
Household Dep't when in 
a satisfactory position. He 
is widely known as Oka- 
yama Saig5. To everyone's 
great surprise and regret, he 



is suffeiring from an incurable 
disease and his doctor only 
gives him a couple of years 
to live. That God may 
spare his life for a longer 
period for the sake of suffer- 
ing humanity is the wish of 
all. Address : Okayama

was on board the warship 
Denrai which protected port 
of Kobe in Saigo's Rebellion 
in iSjJ ; was appointed 2nd 
Sub-Lieut., 1877; Staff of the

of the Standing Squadron ; 
Vice - Admiral, 1903 ■ Com- 
mander-in-Chief of the Stand- 
ing Squadron ; promoted to be 
a full Admiral, Nov. 19 10. 
The Admiral rendered distin- 
guished services in the late 



war -as Commander-in-Chief 
of the 2nd Squadron; after re- 
peated disappointment he at 
last found and sank the Rurik- 
and seriously damaged the 
Gromoboi and the Rossia in 
an encounter, off the eastern 
coast of Korea on Aug. 14th 
in 1905 ; and humanely saved: 
the 613 Russian sailors who 
were struggling among the 
waves. He ordered his men, 
it is said, to exercise the ut- 
most care in rescueing them, 
together with some birds and 
other ci'eatures floating on the 
sea. When the transport Kin- 
shumaru with the soldiers of 
the 9th Company of the 37- 
th Regiment of Infantry was 
■ destroyed by the Rossia and 
the transport HitacJiimartt with - 
the men of the 2nd Body Guard 
Reserve ist Infantry Regi- . 
ment was sunk by the Ruiik 
off Okinoshima, causing the 
blood of the nation to ' rise to 
fever heat, such was the de- 
sire for revenge that some fa- 
natics even presented daggers 
to the Admiral to commit 
/laral'in for Bushido's sake, 
thinking that the sinking of 
the ships were due to the Ad- 
miral's failure to catch the 
Russian war-ships. But his 
final glorious victory over the 
Vladivostock squadron and 
magnanimous conduct towards 
the beaten enemy restored his

on the night of the ist Janu- 
ary proposed capitulation to 
,our Investing Army, caused 
his warships and other ves- 
sels in the harbour to be 



[ 35^ ]

destroyed and the Sevastopol 
and Otvazny, which had been 
for several days lying out- 
side th& port, to be sunk. 
Further, six destroyers es- 
caped towards the offing un- 
der cover of night. Part of 
our blockading squadron gave 
chase, but they failed to 
overtake the vessels of the 
enemy. The Akitsustt (Com- 
mander F. Yamaya) with a 
destroyer flotilla (Commander 
H. Fujimoto) and a torpedo- 
boat flotilla (Commander C. 
Kasama), and Rear-Admiral 
Togo, Commander of the 
Third Squadron with the 
Chiyoda (Captain K. Mura- 
kami), the Tatsuta (Com- 
mander T. Kamaya) and a 
destroyer flotilla (Command- 
er K. Sudzuki) pursued the 
enemy's vessels to Chefoo 
and Kiaochow respectively, 
causing them to take refuge 
in those harbours, where 
they were dismantled. Thus 
the enemy's entire fleet has 
been destroyed — a - result, I 
am convinced, secured thro-' 
' ugh the August virtue of H. 
M. the Generalissimo and as- 
sisted in no small measure 
by the cooperation of our 
loyal and gallant army, whose 
bombardment compelled the 
hostile ships to take refuge.- 
I am therefore in a position 
to report that our warlike 



operations in this direction 
have now been most glori;^ 
ously brought to a conclu- 
sion. " Was created Baron;
