Kirino Toshiaki's wife
Kirino Toshiaki took part in the Satsuma rebellion which was led by his best friend Saigo Takamori. They died together on 24 September 1877. Toshiaki's wife led the women's auxiliary troops.
Part of the text says:
“During the fight she stands at the head of the women's troops; when resting she offers help, shares out food and looks after the soldiers' needs, together in suffering and joy.”
