Saigo Takamori was a great contributor to modernization of Japan during the period between late Edo and the Meiji Restoration.
He was born in 1827 as a son of a low-ranking samurai family in the Satsuma domain.
After the Meiji Restoration, Tsugumichi, Takamori's younger brother, held different ministerial positions.
