Plot

Yae (Haruka Ayase) is born into the Yamamoto family in Aizu, Fukushima Prefecture. Her father is Aizu domain's official gunnery instructor. Yae becomes more interested in guns than sewing. She learns gunnery from her brother Kakuma (Hidetoshi Nishijima) and participates in the Battle of Aizu. Aizu though loses the battle.

Yae divorces her husband Naonosuke Kawasaki (Hiroki Hasegawa) and walks away from guns. She finds a new interest in learning. Yae then meets Jo Niijima (Joe Odagiri), the founder of Doshisha University, and marries him.

Yae is a strong proponent of gender equality and acts according to what she believes in. This rubs others the wrong way, but her husband, who experienced western culture in the United States, supports her. In her later years, Yae servers as a nurse during the Russo-Japanese War. Yae is later referred to as the "Nightingale of Japan".

Ron Enjoyed this story about Japanese history and the transition that the entire country underwent at every level of society as a result of the new pressures of westernization, industrialization, technology, new political influences, as well as

western economic concepts.   I sat on the edge of my chair watching each episode.   The story about Yae Niijima and the Aizu Clan came true to life each Saturday evening in my living room.  

Thank you for producing and showing such a amazing drama and educating myself and thousands of others about traditional Japanese culture and history. I feel that I have learned more about life and its many challenges through this story and much insight into the Japanese and Samurai culture.

katy excellent drama , so real , i can understand Japanese history and unique culture from this drama .

katy excellent drama ,

through this drama i can learn Japanese history and culture .

i can see none of non- Japanese actors can act as true Japanese , even Korea actors and Chinese actors , they are poor in acting , very poor .

katy Excellent Japanese historical drama , make me feel like living in that century . Excellent from directing to script to acting .

missherwood i've been watched the first episode.. i think the story is good.. is really going to be 50 eps?? that's really a lot..

Shahrul Jasnizam Don't forget,Ayame Gouriki,Meisa Kuroki and Kyoko Hasegawa also in action this drama.

DaDa The official poster was released today and Ayase Haruka looks like she can kick some serious ass! I can't wait until they release a trailer!
