Fourth in the Samurai Who Read the Bible series focusing on people in the samurai class in the 1860s and later who were influenced by encountering the Bible and thus influenced Japanese culture and history. Before he was killed, the famous samurai Ryohma Sakamoto had dreamed of going to the frontier of Hokkaido where the farmers were free of the feudal system. But two of his relatives did go there. One became a Protestant evangelist who was friends with Masao Nagano, famed through the story of Shiokari Pass. The other one became a Russian Orthodox priest in Hakodate.
