True story of the last samurai

In the end of the Edo Period (1603-1868), Ryoma, a low-ranking samurai and then a political activist, was deeply concerned about the future of Japan, and felt an acute need of opening its doors to the world. His innovative activities included the establishment of a trading firm in Nagasaki and aiming for a non-war resolution to end the samurai age in Kyoto in preparation for the genesis of modern Japan. All these stories are told during the 120-minute walk near what is currently the busy city center of Kyoto.
