SHINTOHO

[ Story ]

In January 1 904, the situation between Japan and Russia had grown tense. The Emperor Meiji is deeply concerned, for Russia has started to build an invincible fortress at Port Arthur, and the relations between two countries have become strained to breaking point. General Nogi has retired to the first reserve and is now a gentleman farmer, but he is prepared for sudden mobilization. Finally, Japan declares war against Russia and Emperor Meiji appoints General Nogi as the commander of the force to attack Port Arthur. However, in spite of several all-out attacks, the fortress is strong and the casualties increase among the Japanese. Because of these reverses, there are loud cries for a change in command. However, the Emperor places his confidence in General Nogi. After long, hard-fought battles lasting several months in which the General loses his two and only sons… his troops finally take the Russian fortress and General Nogi justifies the trust placed in him by his Emperor. Peace is restored and General Nogi has inspired the confidence of his Emperor and people. In 1912, Emperor Meiji is taken ill and General Nogi attends his sovereign faithfully by day and by night. On July 30, 1912, Emperor Meiji passes away. An Imperial funeral for the Emperor Meiji ends on September 13th and the faithful Nogi in paying his highest tribute to his late Sovereign and the nation, commits suicide with his wife to follow the Emperor to the grave.
