Chapter Summary

For many Japanese residents of Takayama village today, remembrance of the 1871 Nakano Uprising encapsulates a collective and personal trauma of the present, even though none could have seen or experienced the event that happened more than a century ago. Takaino village has continued to be the matrix of uprising memory for the descendants of the victims and the families of the village at large, reinforcing the continuation of a psychological trauma. The remembrance of the Nakano uprising and the traumatic memory of the residents as a historical continuation has been deeply instructive to the author. The memory of the 1871 Nakano uprising which survived among Takayama families as silenced suppressed memory enables us to realize the multiple new questions that one can ask about Japanese history which cannot be derived from the written discourses of historical narratives from the academic centres of big cities.
